Hello everyone, a complete newbie to smoking. Bought a YS640 a couple weeks ago and have had great results so far. Today I am smoking a pair of boneless pork shoulders for what will be my longest cook to date.
My question is, if my target smoker temperature is 225*, do I set it on the temp controller and ignore what the Maverick grate probe says, which is positioned at the center of the grill between the shoulders? Or should I bump up the temperature on the controller until I average a grate temperature closer to my target? Right now the grate probe is reading a solid 207* for the last few hours, and I assume the meat is probably evening it out. I can understand manipulating the controller if the weather conditions are especially cold but it is a pretty mild day today.
Any help is appreciated.
