Probe routing

Has anyone ever tried routing their temp probe down between the base of the egg and the fire ring/box and out the draft door?  I officially torched my one week old gasket last night and I'm thinking of going gasketless, but I don't necessarily want to smash my probe wire between the dome and base.  I can always go out the DFMT, but I thought down through the bottom might be simpler--- and less in the way.  Of course, I haven't checked the length I'd need going that way.  By the way, this question is for low/slow.....

    As long as you are not pinching the wire, I don't foresee any issues. other than it may make it difficult to close the vent completely. All you can do is give it a try and report back how well/poorly it worked out...

    I've gone "no gasket" for 5 years... just lay probe wires on lip and close dome... no problem...
    don't over think the cook - that take all the fun out.
