I just finished seasoning my new MES Gen1. I bought a ET-732 and ran the probe through the top, clipped it on the second shelf down toward the smoker door.
My smoker display had only gotten to 272 after 2 hours with my ET-732 measuring 291-293. At the 45 minute mark left in the seasoning I added the apple chips. Smoker display stated 286 at its highest with my ET-732 showing 295.
Just curious if this seems normal? With smoke a 9 degree difference sounds ok to me since I will be smoking low most times anyway.
