I built my UDS 4 months ago and put the thermometer on the lid. My first smoke was not what I had hoped it would be. I had a tough time getting it up to 250. My next time around I added a oven thermometer that sat on the grate and learned there was a 60 degree difference. The main problem was I needed to open the lid to check the temp. Luckly Santa brought me a wireless dual thermometer for Christmas. One probe checks the meat, the second measures the temp on the is good!
