Wal mart has turkey deep fry thermos for around 6 bucks..12" probe,goes out to the middle of your drum..I have one in mine & works great..small 2" dial though..But if you want to make life really easy,tell Santa to drop you a Maverick 732 digital therm in your stocking!! I got one a couple weeks back & love it..
