Hey all.

What does your probe temperature usually run? Mine runs at 200 to 400 18 inches up. But just wondering about low to high numbers here.

I have an 8" probe thermometer at the elbow, about 20" up on my Axeman. Runs about 90-110° at idle and around 250-300° when humping.

Probe as opposed to magnetic stick-on. 200-400 degrees sounds about right for a flue pipe probe. Internal measurement is far superior to surface measurement, and will be 50% to 100% higher than surface measurement.

Thank you all for the replies. I purchased the probe when I had my EPA wood stove. Just left it in.
