Maverick ET-732

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Does it make sense that the Maverick temperature is displaying heat 25 or so degrees LESS than the thermometer that came with the Brinkmann offset?

It can. Do a boil test and see what the Maverick reads. That is the best way to see.

I did and it was close. I'm just surprised. I would have thought that the temps would have read visa versa. I know heat rises but I was assuming that the Maverick would have been higher than the standard thermometer.

look on the back of the thermometer and see if there is a nut there. I have one that is adjustable and I think quite a few are. Not that you will get a super accurate reading with that one anyway but you might get it closer.

just temember the boil point may not be 212*F depending on altitude and pressure.

factory therms are almost always inaccurate.  Not surprised it is off that much, my factory therm works fairly accurate to about 250* then goes way off in either direction.

Factory therms are a trip!

 

On my offset, the factory lid therm reads about 75 degrees LOW.

 

But that is at normal smoking temps?

 

Above and below normal smoking temps?  The differential will vary. (technical language right there)   :rolleyes:

 

Smokers could be cheaper if they just left out the worthless therms they put in them!

 

Good luck and good smoking.
