SnS Kettle Probe Port Cover
Create a Probe Port in your Kettle Grill
This port cover and hardware is for creating a ½ inch circular hole for a digital thermometer probe in a kettle grill.
- Works on all sizes of kettle style grills (This could void your grill's warranty)
- Cover is made to swing out of the way when not in use
- This feature comes standard on our Slow 'N Sear® Kettle Grills
Watch to see how it works:
This is a great modification for a Weber kettle. Easy to install following the video linked to this page. With this modification, keeping an accurate temp reading on the grill while using the Slow N Sear was easy. Highly recommended!
This is the cover I was looking for., not big or bulky. .Great product.
The ordering and shipping was great, but install had a hiccup - there were no instructions. I know it's just "drill a hole above the grate" (by the way, I was able to use regular bits of increasing size as I didn't have a step bit, which looked like the preferred method in the posts I found) but I wasn't sure which order the hardware sandwich goes - so I went with screw, cover, kettle wall, washer, lock washer, nut. I hope that's correct, but a small piece of paper in the bag (or even just a picture of the order on the product page gallery) would have been helpful. Also, as recommended in another review, I tried bending it slightly to fit the curve of the kettle a little better and the coating (not sure if powder coating or paint) flaked off a bit, so I'll be hitting that with some high temp paint as soon as I get to the store to pick some up. I've used it a few times, and it's great to not have to have the probes down through the top vents or potentially crimped under the lid. I'm not sure if the hole affects the temp since I've been having trouble maintaining 225-250 using my SnS deluxe or if it's from lid leaks (more likely) - I'm going to try binder clips on my next run. I absolutely recommend this product if you regularly use temperature probes.
Thanks for your purchase and for taking the time to leave a review. We apologize for any confusion when installing the cover. These covers come standard on our Slow 'N Sear Kettle grills, so no installation is necessary. Once Tom Horsman used them to make modifications to his Weber in a YouTube video, we had a lot of people asking about them, so we started offering them as an individual accessory. We'll see what we can do to offer better instructions moving forward. Thanks again!
A simple and easy install and great for organizing your probs.
Very well made, just stands away a small fraction of an inch from the hole I drilled for it. My kettle is a 2003 model 22” Weber.
Thank you for your purchase and for your feedback. These port covers were made specifically for our Slow 'N Sear Kettle, so to use them on a Weber, you may have to bend them slightly to fit the curve of the bowl. If you need help with anything else, just let us know! Thanks again.
