Here is where I am at.
I bought a new (used) Masterbuilt Pro Dual fuel (gas/charcoal) and the burner is spot on. I can dial it in within 10 deg. of desired temp. and hold it there. It is very accurate so far.
My problem is this : I don't trust my brand new Maverick ET-732 thermometer set. ( Amazon- 2 months ago)
I cooked with it last week - it read 225-240 and my ribs came out way under cooked. - it was my first smoke on this smoker and wasn't sure who was wrong - the Tstat or the smoker adjustments.
Temp held fine on the thermometer the whole time, so the smoker wasn't fluctuating, but I trusted the Maverick - bad idea?
So, tonight I did a proof test on all of my thermometers and found this:
....sorry for the pic, scanner isn't working.
Will someone please look at it and tell me what the heck is going on? From the tests, the maverick is OK, but from the cook it was way off.
Please help. Trying to smoke pork ribs tomorrow and don't want the same results as before. JD
