Holy Crap!...OK...I just bought myself a ET-73 dual probe thermometer, and am smoking 2 brisket flats and one point tonight. I set my digital thermometer on my MES to 225F and found out it's off by about 30F.
Now...here's my problem...this thing has been ALL over the temp chart tonight. I have the MES temp set at 164F..and that has given me a temp from 219 - 270F on my ET-73 thermometer. Can this be right?
My meat is at 144F right now and has stalled out a bit....so waiting for it to kick in and get up to 165 to foil it up and take it up to 195F.
Anyway...I cannot believe how far my temps are swinging up and down. I am keeping my vent at the top full open...and I only add 1 cup of wood when the smoke is completely gone
Anyone help me out here.
