    What is the best way to place the meat probe cables on the Oklahoma Joe Highland? Ive read some people drill holes beneath the lid but above the cooking grate on some smokers and insert grommets. There isnt room to do that on the highland, right below the door is the rail for the cooking grates. Im not sure if I should drill below cooking grates and run the cable back up, or maybe drill in the side end by the exhaust and run the cable along the inside of the cooking chamber. I unfortunately only have a couple elcheapo walmart units and the cables arent very durable, there wrapped in a thin material that doesnt look like it would hold up to just run them under the door and let it rest on them.
     

  11. I love your snake burner!!! Only wish I knew how to weld :grilling_smilie:
     
  12. You can buy them from gator pit
     
  13. I put mine under the door but I also have the insulation around the door
