If you are using a Dial Type Therm mounted on the DrumPit side, the temp can vary from the side of the drum to the center of the cooking grate by as much as 100 degrees, at least that has been the case with mine...I use an Electronic Temp Probe on the cooking grate for additional temp exactness....
This is what I'm finding as well. The 3" stem on my side mounted thermo just ain't up to the job... plus it seems to fluctuate during the cook... I've got one of my remote thermos snaked down an exhaust snout for now, but that is a ping when I remove the lid to rotate the meat... There has got to be a better way!
