Since Santa got me a new lime green Maverick 733 and I have been curious to see how off the temps were in my MES 40", so I did a lil test today while smoking a pair of yard birds, I was actually kinda surprised the temps were as close as they were:
Shows temp inside smoker, stunned how close these were:
(253 on MES display/remote and 257 on 733!)
Shows MES probe temp, NOT surprised this was off:
(143 of MES display/remote versus 127 on 733, a 16 degree difference, which I heard the norm was about 20 degrees off)
Overall I was quite pleased, my new years day yard birds will be killer none the less and were making some black eye suzies w/pork butt chunks, crab boil cabbage, and some good old fashioned cornbread, HAPPY NEW YEAR!
