Default QD for temp probe?

I am building my Brutus and I have a pair of temp controllers I bought on eBay. I want to lengthen the cable and I would like to install panel mounted connectors.

I am not too familiar with these type of temp probes....other than I know the Sensor type is NTC (10K/3435)...

I assume the cable length/wire size does not matter? It would be nice to attach them via a panel mounted connector...which type would like good and work nicely? I attached a picture of my stand...

Thanks....

BTW, you may want to lower your burners a little

Thanks...

So those temp probes will work for a "love" style controller?

as for the burners...yes...I just have them mounted high to finish out the build...they will be adjusted for proper height for brewing....

Brewers hardware carries a variety of probes. And Derrin's products are top notch, that why we buy from him.

What I was wondering is, is there a proper height? do you want the flames just tickling the pot or in the flame color change? Is there a measurement I dont know
