So, I forgot to remove the probe thermometer before cleaning the chimney. It slightly bent the Condar probe thermometer, but of more concern is I wallered out the inside hole in the Selkirk DSP double wall pipe. I’m worried about gas leakage between the walls and the probe sits crooked now. Concerns and solutions?
FWIW in case anyone has a similar problem, I filled the hole with JB weld (hi temp version) and drilled a new hole the right size. I think it’s fixed.
