Default Installing Thermometer in Gott Cooler

Does anyone have experience or knowlegde regarding methods for installing a thermometer in a 10 gallon Gott cooler...........Either by drilling hole in side of cooler for use with a "weldless" type thermometer or use of a long probe or wire-connected thermometer through the cooler lid?

Any feed back would be appreciated.

thanks,

I'd go though the lid. There is much less chance to mess it up and have it leaking

I installed a Zymico Kewler Thermothingy in my Ice Cube cooler and it works great. You can use 1/8" to 1/4" stem thermometers, and its easy as heck to install. Drill a hole using a 3/8" drill bit, slide it in and tighten. Works like a charm for me.
