Anyone had any experience extending a probe? I don't want to spend anymore money on this thing and I have a bunch of wire available.
Unfortunately the probe was manufacture4d to be that specific length and you would be unable to extend it. The copper wire may give you an extension, but I would have great reservations as to the accuracy of the thermometer at that point.
Like "Big Belly BBQ" said, buy one with the length you desire or buy one with a re4mote probe where you can place as desired.
