Hey all, I was wondering, before I buy my thermometers for my smoker, how far should they go in the cooking chamber? Maybe it doesn't matter. Thanks, SPM

I would also like to know.

Also how many thermometers do you need to have? My smoker is going to be about 8 feet long end to end.

You will want the thermometers to be near the level of where you food is sitting.

For instance, we have a DPP-70, I chose the 6" stems to get right between my 2 racks to give me my median temps between the two. For a cooker that long, I would have no less than 2 thermo's becuase the side to side temps can vary greatly if the cooker is not level. you'll be hotter on the highest side.
