Gidday folks, first post here so hello to you all.
Quick question, i recently bought an older Weber kettle so i could have a bit of a play with some charcoal cooking but without a lid mount thermometer . The Mrs being her loving self bought me a Meater thermometer to use when im cooking. The Meater has been great thus far and had some really good results, the only thing i don't like is that I can't tell what the ambient is before i put the meat inside. The only way i can see to get around this is to install either a lid mounted thermometer which appears easy enough or maybe stick the Meater into a potato or something to protect the internal sensors whilst reading the ambient, then transfer to the meat once im satisfied that the temp has stabilised.
Anyone else got any better ideas, specifically those who use the Meater as well.
Thanks for reading.
