A thermocouple uses two disimilar metals to generate a voltage not resistance.

I am sorry if I am causing any trouble with my comments it is not my intention, what I am trying to do is explain to people that just because I spent x dollars on a really fancy infared thermometer does not mean that it is the best way of measuring temperature. Often the simple solutions are better.

silacomalley just keep the things that I mentioned in mind when you use the thermometer and remember with any instrument every measurment is wrong the trick is working out how wrong.
