    Is this possible: MES set at 225° (its on front porch and its 30° out), TWO 9 lb pork butts from frig to smoker, one with MB factory probe, one with Weber probe and after only 5 1/2 hrs MB prob says 194° and weber probe says 174°.  I was expecting a longer cooking time, say like 10 hrs., to get to around that temp.

    One above the other on the racks or on the same rack? One on bottom reading the higher?
