Thank you Bear for the helpful reply, another quick question do you also cover with foil the bottom grease pan?
I did a dry run today with pellets and heater set at 225F which I filled the Maze 5x8 with one row only and it lasted almost exactly 3 hrs. with TBS.
The pellets smoked without having to relight them once.
The MES temperature showed around 14 degrees less than the Maverick 735 so I ordered a $10.00 temp with probe to find which one is closest but I suspect Maverick will win the day.
Take Care all,
Yup---Bet on the Maverick.
Just adjust your MES to make your Maverick get to what temp you want your meat in.
That's what I get---About 3 hours for one row. Sounds like you got that working good!!
Yes, I cover the bottom drip pan too. I poke a hole for the drain.
