Hello, new to both tools, the Maverick ET-732 and the Big Green Egg. I'm doing a few racks of ribs right now. The BGE thermo reads 245*, the Maverick digital reads 219*. The Maverick is through a potato about 2-3" off the grate. The racks are set upright in rib holders, indirect with the plate setter upside down.
I didn't calibrate either device. I'm not particularly worried, I know how to save ribs that are cooked at 250* instead of 200-225* (but not ribs cooked at 350*). Is there a consensus that either device is generally off? Left to my own thoughts, I trust the digital, but who knows if "who" doesn't ask!
