Master Forge Dual Fuel Vertical Smoker Temperature Gauge inaccurate

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Just assemble the Smoker and have completed the Seasoning exercsie.

 

The Temperature Gauge was off by 80 to 100 degrees.  I noticed the screw (slotted) on the probe (dead center) of the gauge  and was able to adjust to exactly match to an kitchen oven rack temperature guage. It took a few tries but it was during the seasoning phase and no harm to any valuable meat.  Once adjusted at 250 degrees I verified the accuracy on the

lowest temperature as well as the highest I was able th achieve and I was spot on.  If you have the same slotted head on the probe part of the guage save your money for some nice accessary for your smoker and take a screw driver in hand and tweak away.  Seems to work fine now.

Have trouble getting past 270.  Outside temperature has been in the 40s when I did my seasoning.  Due to my schedule I won't be able to test further until after this weekend.

It worked for me. It was a bit stiff but it worked.
