I think you're talking about a wood fired oven.  I have two Bakers Prides and a Castle oven, so I'd be drilling through the metal sides.

I went with the 1000 degree Cooper flange mount thermometer for my Blodgett.  I'm real happy with how it works but if I could do it over again I would have changed where I put it.  I put it dead center thinking that would be the most accurate.  While it likely was the best spot for it performance wise, the sensor probe sticks up just enough when the oven door is open to get in the way of my peel a bit.  I'm already used to it but it does make getting the peel in and out a bit awkward.  If I could do it over again I would move it to the left or the right.  I suppose if I wanted to get creative I could shim the outside with something to raise the thermometer display 3/4" or so off the door so that much less would be sticking into the oven. 
Oh well, live and learn!!
Works great though and it's nice to know what the heck is going on with the temp in the oven without opening it.
Will attach some pics.
