I made these tube holders only because I was probably bored one day out in the shop while baby sitting one of my smokers. Though they look pretty nifty, it's just another item you need to keep tracked of.
Crankybuzzard mentioned in another thread that he uses a muffler clamp. Here's another way by using a couple radiator hose clamps oriented on one of the end clamps.
Here's locating them in the middle. Note these are very narrow hose clamps so the odds of them blocking or affecting the glow is not an issue
Here's what I really like. A pair of 1970 Ford lower radiator hose wire clamps. This setup might infact retire my original cradles in the first two pics for it eliminate an extra item to have and really minimizes the airflow blockage that other traditional hose clamps might create. Yes the ends of the wires could be trimmed down a little. In due time grass hoppa!
