At 154 for the MES, the Mav is reading 298
Opened the door....no way the temp inside was almost 300
Rasied the temp to 157, the Mav read 230
So...I took out my regular oven thermometer as a check
At 147 in the MES, the red oven thermometer read 162 and the Mav read 288!
Raised the MES temp to 177. The red oven thermometer read 188 and the Mav read 295!
I was also occasionally getting hard "puffs" of smoke shooting through the top of the MES, almost just like an old locomotive steam engine.
Other odd thing is I checked the Mav in boiling water and checked at 210-212 degrees.
I'm at a total loss here. At first I thought it was the MES going all wonky already but now after adding the other therm I'm still not sure even after checking the
Mav in boiling water. Just went out and checked again after typing all of this and the red oven therm is still only 10 degrees from the MES temp while the Mav is
a good 60-70 degrees higher.
