Wiring Help

Post by jabbey71 » August 16th, 2015, 4:19 am

I'm trying to figure out what is my best way to feed my wireless thermometer wires through my UDS. I don't want to run them through the small bunghole. I'd like to run them through the barrel wall instead of letting the lid rest on top of the wire and taking a chance of damaging them. This is my 1st UDS, Will the lid resting on them cause any damage to them. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Alot..

I just drilled a ~1/4" hole in the side of my smoker and ran the thermocouples thru it.


If it's tourist season, how come I can't shoot 'em?
