Using an IR Thermometer

July 21, 2009 - 5:06pm -- xaipete

I just got my new infrared thermometer and I have a few questions.


What does D:S (12:1) mean? I understand there is a ratio of 12:1, but I don't understand what it means in practical terms.


Where should I measure my hearth loaves? Center side? Center top? And will that measurement be an accurate measure of the internal temperature?
