Yea lost dome thermometers are useless when you're cooking. I've gotten a cheap oven thermometer and place that one the grate on my grill. My suspicions were that they were undercooked based on your description, but I didn't want to jump the gun. A lot of times you can figure out grate temps with an oven thermometer and the dome thermometer in combination. For example, if you're dome says its 250, but your oven thermometer at the grate says 275, you know your dome is off by 25 degrees. It's not always that easy but it's a cheap trick I've learned that way you don't have to lift the lid on your BGE and lose heat. I have a CharGriller, so it leaks and lifting the lid isn't as bad lol. Keep trying and don't be discouraged!! Before you know it, you'll be making some awesome que! You're off to a good start with the BGE
