No immediate suggestions—500F is pretty hot for epoxies. Your copper anti seize should work fine.If you have any specific suggestions at hand for thermal grease or epoxy available easily, affordably, and in small quantities, I'm all ears. A quick search for specific use compounds did not yield any stuff rated for my 500f minimum target. I needed the Copper anti-seize anyway, it is rated to well over 1000f, and with the copper, should be reasonably thermally conductive since it is relatively quite electrically conductive. I only need a dab at the thermocouple junction.
The thermocouples could easily find their way into an RPi / Arduino /ESP32 type control system integration eventually or even just a BT/Wifi server for remote monitoring. For now a $32 4-channel display seems pretty attractive to get me started.
