Auber PID

What is the best probe to use. The free hanging or the wall mount?

Thanks

Hmmm, kinda hot topic. There are two camps here. Personally I got the wall mount probe and it works for me.
Stainless 4 rack Bradley
6 Rack DBS w/second heat element
Auber PID
7 Foot X 20" Pipe BBQ pit with offset firebox
Jenn-Air 75000 btu gas grill w/sear burner
Weber Performer charcoal grill
Portable Kitchen All Aluminum Charcoal Grill
2 MES 40" smokers
PK360 Grill
Vacmaster 320 Vacuum Chamber Sealer

The problem with the wall mount is that it takes a fixed temp. So if your meat is lower than the probe you are probably getting a reading that is lower than what the meat is seeing. With the hanging probe you are able to put the probe wherever you need to be.
I originally had a wall mount, took it out and used it as a hanging mount until I bought a new hanging probe.

Thanks guys. Would it matter with a dual probe?

No - one probe is for the food so that would be a "hanger" type, the other is for the cabinet.
