    I wipe down the ThermoPops after each insertion and before they are put away with soap and water. The probes are wiped down before and after they are used.
    Tongs I use one for the cook and a clean one to remove the meat from the grill.

    Just a word of warning. Once bleach is mixed with water it starts to lose its effectiveness. For disinfecting (100% bacteria kill) the solution is only good for 24 hours. For sanitizing (99.99% kill) it should be good for several days. You certainly would want to mix up a new batch at least every week.

    I must be doing something wrong. Scolding hot water is usually the biggest extreme I'll go to for raw food contact.(and soap too of course)
