Have anyone removed the thermometer from their Smoke Vault 24 and used the hole to thread probes? I bought mine put together so i am unsure how large the hole is. Would i need to create a seal of some kind to plug the opening? Should i just calibrate the stock thermometer or thread my probes through the vents?

Agree with Al. The front thermometer is maybe a half inch hole when you remove the existing thermometer. I removed mine, drilled a larger hole, and added a Tru-Tel.
For thermocouple routing, I prefer the top vent so the wires don't get caught up in the door mechanism when I'm shutting it. But there is no harm in running your thermocouple in the door. Still seals fine.
