What does everyone do about the wire leads for their mavericks? Do you just run the leads through the exhaust holes or make a little hole in the side near the top for the wires?
I'm not at the Maverick stage yet. Some people cut extra holes in the side of the drum and use a closed gap rubber grommet that seals up to put the probe through. Could probably wrap a 2" flank of tinfoil around the lead wire and use that to stick up the hole.
If you run it through a hole in the lid, then make sure to make a hook for your lid to attach to the side of the drum (think Weber Kettles) or you'll have a bear of a time playing with the wire every time you open the hood.
Another option if you're handy with a dremel or small metal cutter, to cut a groove in the lid so it won't pinch the wires when you close it. Would need to be small or it may turn into another exhaust port. Heck... you could also plug up one exhaust hole in the lid and cut one into the side and run the leads that way.
Not sure if I'm making any sense, just babbling ideas as they pop into my brain. Good luck!
