Hey man, those weld beads are looking great! I have a question though. I haven't ever made a grill/smoker with a port to be able to put in meat probe cables/wires but think I may want to on this one. How exactly did you make the port? Did you just drill a hole for the wires to pass through or did you use a grommet or something to keep smoke and all from leaking out? I know I can drill out a spot and weld a pipe nipple fitting in order to mount my thermometers but I want to be able to use a maverick without the thing leaking smoke everywhere.... OR, would that even matter?
Inquiring minds need to know. :)
