    Does it make sense that the Maverick temperature is displaying heat 25 or so degrees LESS than the thermometer that came with the Brinkmann offset? 
  2. It can. Do a boil test and see what the Maverick reads. That is the best way to see.

    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.
  5. just temember the boil point may not be 212*F depending on altitude and pressure.

    factory therms are almost always inaccurate.  Not surprised it is off that much, my factory therm works fairly accurate to about 250* then goes way off in either direction.

    Factory therms are a trip!

    On my offset, the factory lid therm reads about 75 degrees LOW.

    But that is at normal smoking temps?

    Above and below normal smoking temps?  The differential will vary. (technical language right there)   [​IMG]

    Smokers could be cheaper if they just left out the worthless therms they put in them!

    Good luck and good smoking.
