This DIYThermocouple project uses a MAX6675 chip and takes the millivolts produced by a standard K-type thermocouple, amplifies it, and spits out the results to the attached LCD screen. This particular unit can read temperatures up to 1800 degrees Fahrenheit which is probably hotter that you ever want to be near with your electronics.

    Nice work! Would it be possible to use this to measure grill temperature? I’m interested in a digital temp display for my grill. Thanks
