Yoder probe ports
 
Do any of you with a Yoder pit, wood or pellet, have their thermometer probe port installed as an option?

If so, can you post a picture of it for me please? I'm curious how many Maverick probes I can fit through one probe port. I'm not talking about the pit thermometer port, but the optional port you can have them install if you want to run a food probe into the pit.

Thank you in advance.

Bump.

I will try to snap you a couple pics tomorrow.

Thanks. Didn't think to ask you. :oops:

Hate to dig up an old thread...but just waiting on my YS640 and wondering the same thing. Ordered 1 port and now thinking I might need two. I just purchased a Thermoworks TW8060 with the High temp probes kit. They are substantialy heavier cables than my Maverick ET-733. Ever snap them photos? Or just know...

Thanks

I have 2 probe ports on my YS640. Each one can accommodate two (2) probes. I have a Tappecue, and run up to 4 probes. Highly recommended!

Just read your post more closely. I don't know how thick your probe cables are, but you might be able to get both into a single port. Loosen the lock nut completely to decompress the internal gasket, and run one probe through at a time. Then snug up the nut.

I think you'll be alright!:thumb:

Thanks for the quick response! I never run more than 2 probes so i guess i will take my chances with the single port.

Ozric 08-19-2014 12:24 AM

Please post a pic of the results. I'd like to see those high-temp cables...and your new YS640! You're gonna love it!

I am able to get 3 maverick probes thru my YS640 port at once. snug but they fit.

TinySmokin 08-19-2014 12:52 AM

I am picking my YS640up this Wednesday from All Things BBQ. Will pack the probes with me to make sure. Pretty impressive store and teaching kitchen the Cary's have in Wichita! Just wish i had looked when i was up there last time for a class.:doh:

Sounds like one will be enough...

Edit: I will post some pics and maybe some dimensional data!

Thanks everybody!

They have an inner gasket, for lack of a better word, that is removable. As is the entire cap, so you can use each port in three different diameters: gasket in/cap on, gasket out/cap on, gasket out, cap off. I had two on my YS640, only got one when I upgraded to the YS1500. I really only use it for specific cuts like rib roast, pork loin, etc. I'm glad I have it, but it doesn't get a lot of use on mine.

Can anyone who has the probe port post a few pics of it? I'm looking to install one on my Yoder but I'd like to see where and what before I start drilling.

nucornhusker 08-19-2014 04:31 PM

I've got pics of a YS640, but could have pics of a YS1500 or Kingman with ports. Which do you want to see?

Something like this?
