So I was finally able to try your advice. I cut a potato in half and ran the Maverick probe through it so the end was sticking out of the potato. I placed the potato/probe in the left rear corner of the 2nd shelf.
At 200 degree setting, MES was 200, Maverick was 219. MES coasted to 217, Maverick coasted 232.
I then dropped the temp to 218 and did 3 cycles. In all 3 cycles, the heating element kicked on at 216.
Cycle 1 - MES 218/Coasted to 221. Maverick 228/Coasted to 234
Cycle 2 - MES 218/Coasted to 223. Maverick 226/Coasted to 235
Cycle 3 - MES 218/Coasted to 224. Maverick 228/Coasted to 236
So based on the coasting temperature, I need to set the MES to about 10 degrees LESS than desired smoking temp?
And again, thanks for your advice
