I'm smoking baby back ribs. 3 racks cut into 6 half racks. I used the top 3 racks. Set it to 230.
During preheat it got to 230 and I loaded it with meat.
I filled the water pan with warm water and room temp apple juice.
I allowed the ribs to sit at room temp for about 20 mins.
According the MES 30 the temp is right at 230. My Maverick says the temp is at 174 and at times dropped to 159.
I had issues during seasoning but it was the other way around. The maverick was high temp and unit low.
I placed the probe dangling in the back left corner between the top and 2nd shelf.
I can't figure out which one is accurate. I'm hoping not the maverick.
I need some quick advice. Do I raise the temp on the unit so that the maverick says 230?
Any help or advice would be great.
Ps it's in the 30s here today and I have the vent partially opened.
Also there is a steady smoke coming from the unit.
