    It was my fist smoke today. It generally went well except for one problem. The operation of my maverick et 73 inside my smoker. I haven't done any modifications yet and I was wondering if you folks could take some pictures of how you run your wires in the wsm at the time you are smoking meat.

    I'm really looking at how you place the two probes inside the cooker and how you run your wires.

    The way I did mine vs the thermometer on the wsm was off by 65 plus degrees for both food and smoker.

    Thanks always for your help an advice.

    I don't have a WSM but I have a Mini WSM. I just drilled some holes through the side of the chamber. I drilled one hole right at the grate level of the two grates and one hole right above the top grate for the meat probe. I put 3/16" rubber grommets in the two grate level holes to hold the probe.

    Here you can see the three holes, two with grommets and the probe in the top grommet:

    And here you can see the probe inside the chamber (to the right in the pic) with the grommet holding it in place just above the grate:

    I don't have any pics but I replaced one of the bolts holding the grate supports with a grommet I purchased from BBQ Guru.  I put my pit probe through that hole but the meat probe goes into the meat but the wire is between the smoker and the lid - with the shielded Maverick 732 cable I have not had any problems.  The rubber cables may give you some problems over time.

    There is a thread on here somewhere that shows you a mod made from lamp grommets.

    Here it is...

    Good luck.

    Those are next on my list! The less drilling I have to do the better!

    I got the threaded pieces and nuts from ace hardware..

    Usually just clamp the smoker temp probe to the grate wherever it can go..
