Mes 40" internal temp

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Has anyone with a mes noticed in order to keep an oven thermometer around the desired smoking temp, you have to have the smoker cranked up a lot past your target temp? Anyone else have this issue and any suggestions or solutions? Thank you everybody!

The installed thermometer in almost all smokers are almost always off by a pretty large amount. Reports of 50* error is not uncommon. I suggest you check the oven temp with a digital thermo at the level the meat is cooking on to see what your real oven temp is.

Good luck

The MES is known for that.

 

Some of their temp controllers are very close to the right temp, and some are way off. 

 

I'm lucky mine is only about 5 degrees off, but as Lamar said some may be off 50 degrees.

 

Masterbuilt has an excellent customer service Dept. & they may be able to help you with this.
