I use a short one. Didn't care for the long turkey thermometers.

I also use a 16" clay pot base from HD as a diffuser, then I cover it with foil to keep it clean and catch any drippings. I didn't like it dripping into the coals. When I am finished smoking I close the vents and let the fire go out. I can then reuse what is left over from the cook.
