In hopes of hitting my strike and mash temps more accurately, I want to add a thermometer to my coleman xtreme 62 quart MLT.
I see many people using the digital cooking thermometers with a probe, but I'm wondering if something permanently mounted in the cooler wall would be better?
I saw someone here who had drilled a hole, then used a drilled rubber stopper for mounting his thermometer, but that seems like a less than ideal solution.
Would I be able to use NB's "Cooler Thermometer Fitting" (from here)? My cooler is definitely not 1 1/2" thick, so I'm guessing no. I've had my eye on this thermometer, would it be compatible? Could I buy some other type of fitting that would be compatible?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
