    Looking to add two new thermometers (probably River Country) at the grate level for a Chargriller Duo. I was not sure what length stem size would be adequate, 2 1/2 inch or 4 inch stem. Any thoughts for this particular smoker?

    No one ever responded to this.  I'd like a specific thermometer recommendation too if possible.  I tried searching and see all these guys with thermometers installed, but no mention of the model.

    For the price I'd get a digital Maverick cable/probe OT3BBQ if you don't want a food probe with the thermometer.  It clips anywhere on the grate.  I don't put the probe/cable over coals or flame.  I don't use it to grill (only low/medium BBQ/smokes.)  It has a cable heat rating @ 700* measures to 572* and Amazon has them @ $18.99 including shipping which is cheaper than what I got mine for.  It has a temp averaging feature I don't use. I just set it for actual temp.  If you don't get cable wet at the probe joint, don't kink/pinch cable it'll last a long time.
