    I have a 30" mes black on order and waiting for it to arrive and I am trying to prepare myself so I can jump into it when it gets here. The only ways to do it I guess is 1- through the door OR 2- through the vent. Right?

    I just run mine through the top of the door. The rubber gasket is forgiving enough.

    I have 3 in the vent, out of the way that way.

    And I run mine through the vent. That way it's not in the way when you're spritzing or foiling during the smoke. Only problem is the meat that has the probe, kind of awkward getting some foil on that.

    I run mine out the door right next to the latch. I've never had a problem with it being in the way. Plus when/if you need to pull the rack out to foil, I just take the meter and put it on the rack and pull the whole thing. A lot easier and faster that way than trying to feed it through the vent.
