I just added a second rack last night because i am doing 6 racks of ribs this morning for a fiesta here in Guam. Problem is my temp is going between 210 and 199 constantly on my Maverick. Ive NEVER had a problem maintaining pit temps. But since i threw the ribs on the thing won't get up to 225. I have my barbecue wire all the way to the side on the second rack could that be the problem? Since thats more to the cooler side of the UDS? Thanks for any help.

Might be a little late. but sometimes placing the meat to close to the grill probe can affect your temp readings. At least until the external temp of the meat heats up. Haven't had this issue with ribs, but big cuts like shoulders and such can do this.
