Just bought a brand new Maverick 2 pc. set and have now used it twice.
First time, I used in my smoker to do beef ribs - used the maverick to watch air temp. - and the ribs turned out undercooked.
Second time, yesterday, pork loin, same smoker, this time I ran the Maverick side by side with my old Accu-Rite from Target 15 years old or so. the Maverick showed 245/249 while the accu-rite showed 225/6., and both aftermarket thermometers on the smoker showed around 215-220. What Im getting at, Why is the maverick sooo far off, the others can't all be wrong that bad.
....Is there a calibration process to the maverick? Seems odd to me on brand new equip.
Any advice is appreciated.
Note : temps were taken Maverick: w/ factory grill mounting clip 1" above grate, near center of grate. Accu-rite : in " tinfoil potato "directly next to Maverick probe, same location and same height above grate
