I'm really liking the aluminum ring idea. I've got a little hand riveter... I might need to make use of it now
They're 3/4". There is a third nipple on the back with just a cap. Outside of lighting the coals, the cap stays on. Usually only have 1 valve 1/4 open when cooking at 275-300.
I used a cheapo hand riveter and it worked great. I just worked my way around with a vice grip and 1/8" drill bit. Left a small gap for the thermometer leads.
