I just bought my first smoker. Propane two door Master Built. Here's my question: Lowe's has a probe thermometer that I looked at. The probe is attached with a plastic covered wire. The back of the box specifically says not to pinch the wire. Before I go drilling a hole in the new smoker for the wire, can someone tell me if the pinch from the smoker door will actually be an issue? Haven't even taken the smoker out of the box. I don't see a flat cord on any thermometers that are suggested on the site (Taylor). Is a special hole for the wire just a fact of life when using it in a smoker?

Just feed the wire down thru the exhaust vent in the top of your smoker, No drilling required.

My electric Masterbuilt 30 has a gasket seal.  I just let the wire come out the door.  The seal does not pinch it.  Down through the vent hole is a good idea also.
