You may know, but boiling water knows absolutely. Why don't you give it a run and be sure, you may have a defective or just inaccurate gauge. Also, is this a probe thermometer, because I'm sure you know, temps are higher at the center of the grate than they are at the drum wall. Just suggestions to check, maybe save yourself a lot of headache.
