Folks, when I was installing my probe yesterday I noted that the black wire coating about 1/2 point had a little crack in it, I could see what appears to be shiny shield wire through the small crack. My smoker isn't 1 year old and I've used it maybe a dozen times. I'm very careful with my probes, wipe it down after each use, re-install the plastic protector on the tip, and coil it back in the little bag it came in.
Has anyone else experienced something similar? If so what did you do? Would warranty still apply? And if you bought a new one, what did it cost? I've read some astronomical numbers in other posts, $130-$200 which sounds really a bit extraordinary.
