I have noticed the same thing, I place mine within about 1/2" of each other, and show several degrees off. The only one I worry about is the Qmaster, it's the one running the pit.

You can find a trusted thermometer.
Then calibrate Senior with it at target temp.
I am afraid that you can only find a trusted thermometer from a science lab.
But most popular temp. for low&slow smoking is 225F, you can calibrate it in boiling water at home.
Please note some of you got hi-temp. probe as pit probe. Its max. temp. is 850F. But it is not waterproof. You can not calibrate it in boiling water.
the Meat probe is waterproof. You can calibrate meat probe in boiling water.
then calibrate hi-temp. probe with meat probe.

I did some baked beans this weekend, mostly to try and get the PID settings on the Junior correct and play with temperature. What I found was that if I put the pit probes in a more vertical position the probes were very close in temp to each other. I read on the net that having the probes in a horizontal position will allow them to "absorb" more heat because of the length of the metal probe. Makes sense to me so that's what I'm going with.
