    Hi all, Me again, Just wondering how to mount some kind of shelf or something to the side of my new GOSM when it gets here, to set the digital thermometer on...Am afraid it might get too hot if it sets too close to the smoker....Hoping someone can give me a good idea on what they do.
    Thanks, Steve

    I usually set my digital on top of my GOSM. I do put a hot pad or folded towel under it. Does not get too hot that way.


    Hope this helps!

    Take care, have fun, and do good!

    I saw that, looked but I stay far away from flea bay......too many unscrupulous folks there and shipping from there to here would make it as expensive if not more so...... [​IMG]

    I went to home depot and lowes...neither had one...their price for one was 189.00 and 60 bucks shipping...this one on ebay is 69.99 for shipping...and I bought mine for 70.99 off the auction...course I always look at their feedback rating..
