maverick thermo question

Discussion in 'Meat Thermometers' started by migraine, Aug 18, 2013.

  1. I have the dual probe(bought from AmazenProducts along with a huge supply of pellets and 3' of matts)

    I did a temp check with boiling and ice water with the maverick and my PID controller.  The temp range for the maverick was +/-2*and the PID was off by 5*.

    But, when I mounted the oven probe through the side wall with rubber grommets, the temps didn't stay in range. The probes sticks straight out horizontally.   Because of the grommets and the side wall thickness, I loss about 3/4" of the probe not being totally inside the cabinet. 

    My question is does the whole probe need to be inside the cabinet, can the majority of the probe be sufficient?

    Thanks in advance,

    Brian, when I use mine on my Mini-WSM I run it through a grommet. The only part that isn't in the smoker though is just the end. On my GOSM the whole probe is in the smoker, and I don't notice any difference.
