WSM 22.5, Grommet's from Cajun Bandit... NEED NOOB HELP!

    OK..  I purchased the BBQ Sensor Grommets from Cajun Bandit, but they didn't come with any instructions.  I'd like to make sure I get these things in there correctly, because I don't want to run into an issue later with meat on the rack.

    I am struggling with figuring out how to make it work.  I took the bolt out of the top "grate holder" but can't figure out how it's supposed to work.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks!

    I ordered the 3/4 grommets because I've got the maverick 732, but these definitely do not fit thru the hole where the bolt goes.

    Well I never have used the Cajun Bandit eyelets, but here is a mod I came up with a year or so ago that is very popular for getting eyelets in on a WSM. They are plenty big so I can fit up to 3 90° probes at one time with no issues.

    You might be able to install the cajun bandit ones in a similar fashion?

    I don't have those grommets either, but it sounds like you just need to drill the hole a little bigger.

    Yeah, it definitely looks like I'm going to need to drill a hole.
