Default HERMS with two PIDs

Ok you may have seen other post about my eBrewery, but I wanna make sure I plan everything out completely before starting. This leads me to thermocouple placement. I have two as my disposal so I would assume HLT and Mash, but the question is where to mount?

HLT - Being that I am looking for an overall temp reading and will be using a stir motor, I would assume placement can be anywhere

Mash - This is where it gets tricky, I've seen them mounts at the ball valve, at HERMS return, and on side of keggle. Is there an advantage to either. I figured it would be a matter of dialing in the system depending on the mounting choice.

Is this correct, or is there a best method?
