Not only that, but if you mount a thermometer you only know the temp in that one place.  I like to be able to move my thermometer around to different locations and depths so I know I have the heat evenly distributed.

Good point Denny.

I would love to have a thermometer mounted in my cooler, but I would also want to check the mash temp in several places to assure it is somewhat stable.

FWIW I have a Blichmann mounted through the side of my cooler MLT.  Doesn't consistently read the same as thermometers in the mash (I don't recirculate or anything, not the fault of the thermometer).  If I could do it again I wouldn't bother putting one in.  Nearly cost more $ than the rest of the MLT.
