    I saved the football knockout from the SFB and cut two pieces one off each ends. Drilled in holes, put it on the grass and banged it with a hammer to get a decent curce to match the inside of the grill. Then I painted with high temp spray paint. I think it came out kinda nice. The metal was harder to cut than I thought it would. I was using a jig saw at first, then went and got the sawzall.
    Was easier to cut, but still tough. Good thing my 14 year old son helped me! :)

    I know this is an old thread, but where can I find those red/white/blue thermometers? I want those kind for my UDS.

    Nice job on the mod. Those therms are usually pretty much on the money. Congrats.

    Ya might find them cheaper else where but customer service that is given by Bonanza is worth the little extra imo.

    I got mine on Ebay, but I beleive it's from the same guy. You can get the char-broil thermometers from Home depot or Lowe's for $6, but I have one in my kettle grill and the red white blue ones seem far more accurate.
