That looks good Jerry, I was wondering how much clearence do you leave for the thermo to slide in and out? I have noticed a lot of build up when I'm done smoking and take a srubby pad to it to make sure it doesn't get to much build up. I did mine at work out of brass because thats what I had at the right size. I just popped in a collet and drill bit and knocked out 12 of them in about 15 min. If I need anymore I will use stainless next time. Thanks!
