What is a rtd probe? Is that the temp probe? If so, I don't mount mine, it is on a 6' lead from the controller and I put it directly in the middle of the mash. I've recorded a 10 degree difference depending on where I had the thermocouple, so I like to just stick it right in the middle of things.

I do brew in a bag, so I like the basket for the grain, and I use a hop chute for hops during the boil, so nothing really gets by. Any sludge stays in the bottom of the kettle after I transfer anyways.
