Default Thermometer for coolers??

Is there a thermometer kit I can get for a cooler mash tun. I wanna be able to keep track of temps without opening the cooler. Any suggestions?

I bought one of those remote read digital ones at walmart, and just close the lid on the wire. So far so good.

I did this to both my HLT and MLT, and they work great. FWIW, Harbor Freight has this type of thermometer pretty cheap, and I've found them to be more durable than the tru-temp/taylor that cost twice as much.

I've got a 1/4" SS sight glass+thermometer T-fitting from Northern Brewer that has never been used, with a thermometer port, if you're interested. $25.00 and it fits a 10G cooler.
