I did a compare of the Maverick temp reading to the TW probe reading on a seven hour pork butt smoke yesterday... I wired the TW probe to the Maverick probe and bent the TW end up so it was 1/2" above and 1/2" forward of the Maverick probe, also tried to get a steady reading at each read...

TW Mav Diff
269 257 12
328 313 15
320 313 7
285 277 8
265 252 13
279 270 9
296 288 11

I would regard the general difference being a function of the different relative position and the variability just part of the responsiveness of the units (Maverick seemed to not drop as quickly when the top was removed and recovered quicker).

Conclusion - effectively, for me, both units read the same temp.
