Many places; Check out stove shops, hardware stores, lowes, home depot, etc.. It's a simple round thermometer with magnet on back. Between $10.00 - $20.00.

I got a Rutland burn indicator from Ebay, also some cheap oven thermometers. Not extremely accurate, but very helpful. I know if my fire is getting too cool or ashbound when the stack temp goes below 150, and a little too hot when it goes over 200 on the indicator.

Ask for a wood stove thermometer. Or, stove pipe thermometer.

"Rutland Burn Indicators"! They are between $12-$20 in most stores that sell stoves stuff like tractor supply and I guess you can get them on ebay if you don't mind getting burned.

They work fine unless you are trying to chart exact temps.

I bought a Rutland magnetic stove thermometer today to put on the side of the stove, so I can put my old Saftyscrew (sounds like something you would buy at a drugstore :oops: ) thermometer back on the stove pipe. Stove temp. is 300* and the pipe temp is 150*. That is doing prety good as far as heat loss isn't it :?: :D
