master built or cook shack? - Page 2

running the internal temp test.

I put the big green egg (which is a mav) probe on lower rack and the igrill on the top rack, both on the left side, bge probe is facing the smoker box. both probes are not touching the grates. temp turned all the way up..

on warm up the lower grate temp was higher the the upper, the mid way through heat up the upper was higher, both probes made it up to 285 then once the temps maxed at 285 they both are dropping I think and hope that this is when the smoker will settle down to 250.

I will edit this post live.

note the smoker is empty I think temps might be better if it had some meat in it.

upper temps maxed out at 277 and dropped to 243 lowers where 3 to 5 degrees less, let it run for an hour and was constant in these swings.

8:07 I just turned the smoker down to 225.
