So im hosting my 3rd annual pre-thanksgiving turkey fry and need an answer to a UDS question. Im planning on making a bird in the UDS as well as a deep fried one. Because this event takes place outside and its getting quite chilly in Cleveland, OH, I was thinking of making a fire inside the UDS once the turkey is finished for people to warm up. Do i need to remove the thermometer before doing so? Will it harm anything? Any answers would be appreciated.
