Default WSM BBQ Guru Adapter Mod (pr0n)

I got a BBQ Guru CyberQ WiFi for Christmas.
The manufacturer recommends installing the adapter through a vent hole. I decided to mount the adapter in a separate hole. I can then use the ATC on either of my WSMs. If I choose not to use the ATC, I can just leave the kill plug in the adapter and all the stock vents are fully functional.

I bought an extra WSM adapter and kill plug when I ordered my CyberQ WiFi.

WSM vent holes are 3/4", the WSM adapter is 1 1/4" ID. I have a 7/8" hole saw, and decided to use it. 7/8" is also a good choice because it is 1/2" trade size for electrical fittings. If I ever want to blank up the hole, a 1/2" electrical knockout (KO) seal will cover it right up.

I put blue tape over the hole drilling area and marked it out. I drilled a 1/4" pilot hole, then used my 7/8" hole saw. I did my 18 1/2" WSM first, then the 22 1/2".

7/8" hole drilled half way between the left leg and vent (it will be directly below my probe grommet).
