It's the same with butts, put the probe in 3 different places and get 3 different results. Do you guys just use multiple probes in a piece of meat or just try and stick the probe in the middle to get the best temp. I just got a thermopen for christmas so I guess that will make things easier.
Meat will drop 10 degree's by the time you get it wrapped and back on the pit, don't sweat it!
Otherwise what Papa Hogg said!
