Heat shrink your Fireboard probes!
« on: February 02, 2018, 10:16:30 PM »

I'm sure I'm not alone in this. I have a lot of probes for my Fireboard and it drives me nuts that they're all the same color. I always had to be careful about the order I unplugged them in when I pulled them out to wrap a brisket.

Then it hit me, heat shrink would be perfect!

I cut a small amount of heat shrink tubing (8mm/4mm tubing fit best) and shrunk it to the end of the probes. This took me all of 10 minutes to wrap the ends of the probes I have in use.

I used multi-colored twist ties we have laying around from boxes of baggies.  of course, now I have to remember where I plugged the other end of the probe into.... :'(

Sometimes I can't see the forest because of the trees!
ArborAgent, you are awesome and I don't know or care if "Hank Hill is disappointed in you or not" I am proud of you. I have been trying to think how to do this for a couple of weeks and just couldn't see it. WOW!
Did you do anything on the actual probe end or just leave it?  When I'm able to get out of the house again, Altex here I come.

Thanks

I didn’t bother with the probe end. I didn’t want to worry about the food safety aspect of this.

Hank Hill is a character on the cartoon “King of the Hill” he sells propane and propane accessories. His slogan is “taste the meat, not the heat”. He’d be aghast if he knew about pellet grills.

Search Amazon for "B01FYUF5Q4" and you'll find the kit I used.

My heat gun is a Porter & Cable.
