Hi! Long time lurker, first time poster.
I just bought a new hottop b with the newer k type thermocouple. It's my understanding that while much more accurate than the old button style sensor, it's placed too high to be a true bmt sensor. I've read about both the chute and more permanent drum options for installing probes, but for simplicity sake, I was wondering if anyone had ever just moved the stock thermocouple lower in he drum so as to get a better bean mass reading right on the front display? Seems simple enough but I am sure I'm missing something obvious. Thoughts?
Cheers,
Rob

If anyone was interested in this, I figured out on my own a few reasons why it wouldn't work. The hottop has a built in auto eject at 428f which would get triggered too soon if the probe were in the actual bean mass. This of course coupled with issues using the auto profile and not having the ability to plot a roast curve on an external device make moving that thermocouple not a good idea.
