I replaced the Maverick probes with Oregon Scientific probes which are much thicker and now I'm confident the unit will run fine for years to come.
I'm concerned about this with the Kamado. I'm putting in the felt gaskets, though, so I'm thinking about putting a small break in the felt for the wires to pass through.
