    You can buy those type of grommets at your local automotive parts stores.  Called firewall grommet.

    I realize that it's a bit crude compared to the grommet's, but I simply drilled a 7/16 hole, (With a "step drill".   ),  through my kettle's and WSM.  Originally intended to look for a grommet to finish it but have had no troubles so far.  The step drill will start a hole, without need of a center punch which can shatter the coating on the Weber kettle's and WSM's, and cut's a clean hole that doesn't need additional de-burring.

    I have used these smokers for an average of two smokes per month for over two years with no adverse effect to the probe wires of either my Maverick nor Thermoworks thermometer probes.
