Default Maverick ET-732

My Maverick is coming in today and had a stupid question. Is it ok to just run the wires under the lid or will that crimp the wires? I thought I read somewhere that you don't want to crimp/smash the wires.

Unsure of what type of lid you are referring to but on my ceramic grill I have a felt gasket and this will not harm the leads. However what I do is wrap the leads that are inside the grill in aluminum foil to add additional shielding from direct heat. Not sure if it works or not but I have been using the same leads for over two years now with no issues. (ET-73)

Are the probe wires braided stainless steel?

I have drilled a hole in my WSM for probes. But, I don't have a hole on my performer so I just run them under the lid. No problems at all.

I have a hole in my UDS for probe wires. My ET-732 works great I think you will really enjoy it.

I used the waterproof 1/2" elect box fitting for conduit. it has the rubber piece inside with an oval hole. other than that, put it thru the top vent. you dont want a wsm lid cracked open

That is what I used on my UDS. I did take the rubber insert out and drill it round. Now I can get 3 or 4 probes through it with no problem.
