I found a chart with pyrometric cones up to 3650 degrees F. I can get a 3000 degree one and see what the thermocouple is reading when the cone bends. That should get me in the ballpark without spending a lot of money. Thanks Carl

      I think you will find that your eyes will be far more sensitive to the color temperature than a thermocouple buried in refractory.
