A “flue pipe thermometer” or “stove thermometer” is usually attached to the pipe coming from the top of your stove. It helps you to know when your stove is burning at the best temperature. Try to aim for the middle of the “best temperature” range on the meter. You will soon learn how to reach this temperature quickly and keep it there.
