    My single wall terminates to a SS T and liner straight up to the top.

    I have read in some places that on single wall, if the thermo says 300, it's really 600?

    Wondering if this is the case. I was at the stove shop today and saw some probe thermos, is it worth it for single wall?

    Despite what any packaging says, probe thermometers are meant for double wall pipe. Their scale is not correct for single wall pipe due to the hotter external surface of single wall.

    If you trust that rutland is reading accurately, ignore it's craptastic scale, and follow these temp guidelines.

    The scale on a rutland is a compromise between what temps should be seen on a stove pipe and a stove top. Condar's scale and thermometers represent what is safe for pipe and stove top respectively, no averaging like rutland does.
