    As the posting says any thermometer and moisture meter recommendations? I currently have 3 rutland thermometers that i bought at home depot. two on top of the stove which give me two different readings and one on the flue pipe which i have no clue about if it is accurate. also want a moisture meter to test wood in different areas of the stacks. seems towards the bottom of the stacks are little less seasoned then top and middle. possibly have to raise it off the ground more.

    Any suggestions would be great.

    Thanks!
