No, I didn't stop.
Maybe not today, but you will stop, you will.

Anybody worth his salt as a serious backyard cook will appreciate the 22.5 Weber kettle. I've owned at least four of em.

I love my kettle. Has anyone done a mod for the tray to contain the ashes... On a windy day ashes tend to blow everywhere.

Buy a 12" turkey fryer thermometer, put it through the uper vent, using the clip to hold it at grate level.

Added a top, and a grill level thermo. Two drilled holes, and it's done.
I use both as most of the time my fire is at the back side divided by fire brick, grill-smoking indirectly. The depth is 2 1/4" so the bottom thermo won't get in the way of food.

Do you use a glue or something to hold it in?

No Glue!- The thermo's are threaded with a washer and nut. Recommend you don't torque down, you could deflect the housing and they'll steam up. I learned that one the hard way.

Well, I guess I get to join the party with my purchase of a 22.5" yesterday! Now I gotta get it cleaned up and use it.

I bought some like that from Cabelas - Mine were called Old Smokey thermometer.

Not a bad price & looks good.
