Just curious

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello.  I just received my new 22 1/2" Weber kettle ( 57cm for the U.K. members ).  About to put it together.  I know as a "rule" we tell folks not to rely on the therms that come with your smoker.  You DO pay more for the Weber "quality".  Before I have even put it together I was just curious as to the members experience with the Weber therm provided.  Thanks for any advice.  Keep smokin!

Hey Danny,


Only used mine for three smokes so far and the Weber thermometer is off by about 40F compared to my Maverick ET-733. From what I understand the inaccuracy is unfortunately normal.


Still a great smoker though...would not change it!


Good luck!

The difference is almost unavaoidable. I put my Maverick thermo at meat level but my WSM termo is about 8-12 inches above the food so the temps will not be the same. My vote is to get a good thermo that you can monitor the food and the Q. I also use a pen thermo to do checks in various place of the food or in other pieces that are on the grill.

Hello folks.  That is what I expected to hear.  I was just wondering if Weber had improved the therm they provide.  You would think that with what you pay for the Weber you might get a therm that is at least close.  OH WELL!  I shall just ignore it as I have always done with other smokers.  Now I have a question for you Weber kettle owners about the Maverick probes.  NEW thread!  Keep Smokin!
