Did my first brisket in the new YS640. I had huge temp differences between the control board read out and actual temps.
It was cold and windy today, 19 degrees when i started warming up to 22. It was breezy with 12-15 mph winds. Here are the numbers:
started in heat mode 3 at the preset temp of 350., it hit 225 in 20 minutes.
i set it at 275 and I put the 7 lb brisket in and the temp dropped to 190.
while set at 275, the control board readings where shooting up to 305 but the actual temp (i had two different probes in there) was 205
Throughout the entire process i never had less than a 40 degree difference between what the control board was reading and the actual temperature. At times it was as high as a 70 degree difference.
at 3.5 hrs at temps ranging from 190 to 235 the meat hit 155 and i pulled and wrapped it. threw it back in and it was done in 2.5 hours more at 203 degrees.
It came out very good, but i was stressing with the huge temp differences displayed between the control panel and the actual temps. The huge temp differences also existed between the set temp on the control board and the probe temp displayed on the control board. Always ranging between 40 and 70 degree difference. That just seems crazy to me. Anyone have any input?
Below are some pix of the brisket. ( I uploaded them in reverse order)
