At this current moment Maverick is read 357 and dome is reading 325.
Okay, we're getting closer.... where on the grate are you placing the pit probe in order to measure the actual temp? Like, is your probe close to the meat, above the meat or what? Too close to the meat will cause false readings. Also some ceramic cookers have a hot spot. Mine is in the rear, so I avoid putting the pit probe back there. I also don't place it close to the edge of the plate setter.
