Default Best place for Guru Pit Probe in WSM?

After several cooks on the WSM using the BBQ Guru, I'm wondering if its a good idea to place the pit temp probe on the grate directly below the meat... Once I get my pit up to temp and put the meat on, that cold slab of meat cools off the probe and causes the blower to run a good bit more until the meat starts to warm up on the outside. I also notice a 15-20 degree drop in temp once the meat starts to drip fat.

Where's the best place for the probe?

I always clip the probe to the grate as close to the meat as possible....and not near the edge of the grate where you get a hot blast of direct heat.

Fred suggests clipping the pit probe to the meat probe (but not touching the meat). This allows it to control the temp as close to the meat as possible.

That sounds like an excellent idea... Thanks!
