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'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.
