    I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good exterior thermometer for my GOSM? I have a maverick with the duel probes one for meat and one for cooking surface temp? I want one thats permanent through the hole in the door.

  3. Just put -- 'bout 15 minute ago - a Q Pro 2 inch on my Smokin' Pro. Drilled a hole 5/16th...washer outside with hi temp caulk. Pushed thermo. thru. Washer inside ...with a little..very little ....VERY litte 'c-type' slide on clamp. Looks like a MINI-horseshoe with 'minute' pin side holes at the end. DID I MENTION these are SMALL!!!

    I slid 2 of these little jobbies down the stem inside the smoker -- which in theory will secure washer to inside of hood.

    83 cents in material. NOT including thermo.

    You thumbnail shows quite a variance in temps throughout the levels in your smoker. Is that common?

    Can you supply any pictures of your work? I'd be interested in seeing them.
     
  6. I really like this idea, I might make this mod to mine.

    Very common for me. Bottom vents closed to factory settings, top vent wide open. Gives me a chance to smoke stuff at different temps, great for ribs on top and chicken on the bottom. I understand that these temps can vary by smoker and or location.
