I just got my maverick monday and the probes were 1-2 degrees off at room temp. Probably normal. I must say that until i got my mav, temps were a guessing game. I was using oven thermometers and didnt realize how far off my actual temps were from where i thought i was. I think thats the reason for my inconsistant results with my ribs. Sorry for the hijack. You'll LOVE your new maverick. Oh and the 50/50 mix of Blues hog is a game changer for sure.
