    Looking t install a "grill level" thermometer.  The Char-griller Duo asa unit at the top of the grill, but I was going to put one  down at cooking level.

    What is a good one that is not too expensive? I will put at least one each side.  Maybe 2 for a hot and indirect reading at the same time.

    Oh, and simple to install.  My mechanical abilities do not exist.

    The maverick is a great setup.  Check amazon for deals on them.  I love mine but you'll want to calibrate every so often.

    I would not recommend another therm in the lid which will also probably be inaccurate?

    Go with a probe like the Maverick or another good brand.

    Know your temp where the meat is on the grate.  Not in the lid?

    A good source would be:

    I will personally vouch for his customer service.

    Good luck and good smoking.
