    My digital thermometer has a cable running from the probe to a sensor. How does everyone run the cable through the smoker? Just pinch it in the door or drill a hole in the side of the cabinet or what is done?

    I just thread mine through the top vent. Works fine for me.

    MoFo I run mine thru the top vent. I am going to put one in the side as soon as get a 1/2" UF water tight connector fitting. But right now I just lay a 2X4 piece on top of mine and put the transmiters on it, they dont get hot that way. Hope this helps out a little...

    Run your probe down the back wall and insert in your meat so it doesn't hang up on other racks. Makes it easier to pull racks out. [​IMG]

    Yep, but be careful not to pinch the wire too hard with the rack against the back of the smoker.

    I drilled a hole in the side between the top rack and the next one down but eventually will add the fitting Trav posted about

    I use one of the original holes that was in the door, It had some small metal piece riveted to the door. When i removed the nameplate with the built in POC therm, I ended up with some extra holes in the door. I made use of the hole for the original therm and replaced it with an after market unit.

  11. On my charcoal model, I used to run probe wires near the latch, but sometimes they got in the way. Later I found the gap on the hinge side of the door leaves just enough room for probe wires without getting pinched, and they're out of the way too.

    For my Silver Smoker I drilled a hole for all three digital cords...for the GOSM, they ran right through the vent.
