UPS man droped off my new MES30 yesterday. Put it togeather last night, and picked up some chips this morning. All set to season it. Set temp at 275, time 3hr. All seemed ok so on the tractor to mow lawn.
Just about lunch post man shows up with new Maverick ET-732. Quick dip in ice water 40deg both probes. Boiling water both at 212. Out to the garage, and drop the BBQ probe in the vent hole. Holy S**t Temp in box at 325!! Double checked maverick all ok. On the phone to Masterbuilt. They will send out new control panel in a week or two. i don't wont to wait that long to get smoking! So I lowered the MES temp to 220, and opened the door to cool it off. Once the smoker cooled to about 230 i droped probe back in. Now it reads about +10 deg over what smoker is set at. Played around with temp, and chips for about 1/2 hour. Still off by 5-10 deg. Depends on were the probe is in the smoker. Will still put new control panel on when it comes. just wondering if any one else has had this problem?
