I used my Masterbuilt ME30 electric smoker for the first time this past weekend together with the Maverick remote thermostat. During the entire smoking process the difference in readings between the ME30 and Maverick was around 13F. Is that a normal difference? Through browsing around this forum it looked like the difference would be just a couple of degrees. I only used the heating probe - not the food probe - and had it located on the top shelf attached through the vent. Had the temperature on the ME30 set at 225F and the reading on the Maverick was always around 238F. Any suggestions? The remote did not work very well for me - I could get it synced and within 10 minutes it would lose it's link to the transmitter and I would have to sync again. Eventually just gave up on the receiver - will try again next time.
By the way the ribs came out great! Followed the 3-2-1 method and the whole family agreed that these were the best so far!
