I have had a chance to check the temp setting.

I used a pan of water and I suspended both probes from the iGrill, the Taylor, and the QMaster, so they didn't touch the bottom.

The starting temp was about 47*, I heated the water to boiling, and all 4 stayed within 3 to 5 degrees all the way from 47* to 212*. The QMaster seemed to respond to changes quicker and was normally a degree or two higher.

The pb setting is 006, so that may be why the temp on the QMaster was running a few degrees higher.

Also looking back at the graph from the iGrill, shows small temp spikes, I noticed the pid setting are different from default. P=40 default is 30, I=90 default is 240, and D=0 default is 60.

I may reset these to default and try again, I have a pork loin to smoke today.
