Replaced the Weber iGrill meat probe after frying the original

Weber iGrill

While grilling “bacon wrapped” steaks (bacon was the problem) over Christmas this year on our Weber Grill … I “over-cooked” (or perhaps “fried”) the meat probe for the Weber iGrill temperature monitor. I knew when the plastic caught fire that it wasn’t good, but thought perhaps the braided wiring and probe itself might still be fine. It was not … and needed to be replaced. My son-in-law who coaxes me into using these tech gadgets by gifting them to me (not that I need much prodding)New Replacement probes volunteered to replace it. Too kind, but “my bad” … I appreciated none the less. 

So last week between Christmas and New Year, I order a no-name 2-pack replacement on Amazon and they work fine. We’ll see how well they holds compared to the original … but only for NON-bacon wrapped meats. 😉
