Not owning a GC, but thinking about it, I came across a site showing images of a GC describing the replacement of the heater element. The images showed the two temp. probes and the probe's wires and connections to the pcb's. So, my feeling was if you can't place a separate probe into the roast chamber why not try and use the existing probes. Couldn't you splice into the wires from the probes or even solder to the underneath of the pcb where the two probe wires are soldered and connect a "K" probe (minus the temp sensor), simply utilizing the two wires and the end connector for use in a temp monitor device? Is there a reason why this wouldn't work? And if it would work then it would be feasible to utilize RoasterThing and it's Temp. Board to record temps for better roast control? I realize that the probes don't get close enough for bean temp measurement, but you could still use the temps to auto. chart the roast profile and modify the roast temps accordingly as you find a good profile. Is there a serious flaw to my idea?
