I'm a potter/computer builder/computer store owner/ISP owner and I wanted to know if anyone could point me in the direction of building a Pi, which I have two of them now, into a monitoring device for my kiln. I bought a fancy thermometer and when it hits about 1500F it's actually about 1750F. I noticed that adafruit sells a K type probe and add on but it doesn't go up to the temp I need around say 2250F... If I could monitor the temp as it comes up to its top temp that would be perfect. I have a probe that has two wires and will handle the heat. Just worried about connecting it to the Pi and what software to run? Any hints or general direction pointing would be greatful!!!
