How do you guys put a thermocouple in the bean mass in the BBQ coffee roaster? Doesn't the wire tangle up on the rotating spit?

If you look at the 5 pound roaster pics on my web site, you'll see a 2" hole
in one end of my drum.  I pour the beans in and out of this hole and don't
use a latched door.  I stick a 12" dial thermometer into that hole, 'through'
another small hole in the grill top.  The tip of the thermometer is in the
bean mass as they tumble and give me temps that I would expect at the various
stages.
