I'm looking to purchase a digital thermometer and due to my own clumsiness I need to find one where the probe and braid are waterproof. Does anyone know of a brand that makes one of these? I have been searching all day and can't seem yo find one.

I was thinking of taking one of those bbq temp probes with the long wire and shoving it through either some stainless or copper tube, then seal it up with some aquarium grade silicone.

I have the same one and it works great. That company will spam the heck out of you once you purchase something from them, I get e-mails 2-3 times per week.

I just built a compression fitting to fit the probe and run it through the side of my coolers. you could do the same thing with a pot or keggle. the wire never really gets wet that way.

or just run aquarium tubing around the braid and the first inch of probe, and zip-tie the crap outta it to keep it from leaking. $15 oven thermometer from Target and $1 worth of tubing.
