Default Guess my true temp

I just figure it's in between the two and go with it. My pit gage varies by 20 to 40 degrees. My pit likes to run @ 275 280 temp is not a problem as brisket is done when its done. Some probe tender at 195ish others 205.

They could both be right. The Tel Tru protrudes what, 4" into the cook chamber? Where did you have the probe clipped at? Different part of the cook chamber? Its possible theyre reading differently because theyre in different parts of the cook chamber. I would trust a Tel Tru over a Maverick or whatever though.

I would guess your temp is 98.6 unless you are running a fever. Nice Brisket!

Some stories are better told with one version. Tape or unplug one. There.

Brisket looks good.

Average it out to 290. Close enough. I like that man-size serving of brisket you made for yourself.

The tel tru sit about 4 inches above the grate. The Mav is clipped to the grate. I suspect that is the difference. My pit is a Rock'n W and is very, very easy to control temp.

I have a Tel-Tru at each end of the cook chamber. The one near the firebox runs almost exactly 25 degrees hotter than the one near the smokestack.
