I've seen many temperature sensors, but the highest temperature they go up to is 125 degrees C (257 degrees F). I want to reach higher temperatures than that. I'm thinking about rigging up a closed loop sensor for my soldering iron (for a convenient LCD display), but I can't find out how to sense the temperature of the tip due to the higher operating temperature than most sensors.

Page 6 of the datasheet has the serial interface protocol information and. You can really just set the Chip Select line and it'll give you 16 bits of information, 12 of which will be the temperature.
A simple search led me to these components.
There is also a tutorial on Adafruit that deals with using and interfacing thermocouples.
