I just got a digital thermometer (Maverick ET-73) and the wire on the probes are only so long so I can't lay it on a table... so I clip it on the top of the door. This allows me to open the door with out much worry about the wire being pulled out of the meat or anything like that. I could drill a hole in the side of the smoker but when I tried... I couldn't do it. I was wondering where you hang it? It's made of plastic... I'm kind of worried that the heat will cause melting and warping. Anyone have any pictures of where they hang theirs? I hope someone has a picture of the Vertical smoker that I have... the Master Forge 2 door propane smoker or can at least explain how they work with theirs.
