I was smoking some 1 1/2" thick Pork Chops yesterday. (Sunday) I had my Maverick Probe in 2 of the 8 Chops. I was planning to take them out at 150* One Chop read 149* and the other 144* and they had been stuck there for probably 15 minutes or so, then all at once their temperature started dropping while the Smoker was maintaining it's 235* temperature. The 149* probe dropped to 144* and the 144* probe dropped to 138*. Then another couple of minutes or so they dropped another 2*.
I knew it wasn't possible for the temp to drop when the Smoker was maintaining it's temperature and cycling perfectly, so I opened Smoker door, pulled the probes out and re-inserted them and the Temp instantly read 151* on one and 149* on the other.
Does anyone have any idea how it was possible for the Maverick Probe readings to drop and give a FALSE reading like that?
