I did and it was close. I'm just surprised. I would have thought that the temps would have read visa versa. I know heat rises but I was assuming that the Maverick would have been higher than the standard thermometer.
look on the back of the thermometer and see if there is a nut there. I have one that is adjustable and I think quite a few are. Not that you will get a super accurate reading with that one anyway but you might get it closer.
