Default Need Advice Quick

Trying to smoke a brisket at 225. My Maverick says 223. But the Tel Tru thermometer on the front door of my Backwoods Fatboy says 265. Any thoughts on which to believe. Obviously need to do some calibration before the next run but now is obviously not the time

Is the Maverick probe in the same place as the door thermometer? That could make a difference.

It's easy enough to calibrate the Maverick now with some boiling water. That will at least tell you if that one is correct.

I have a fat boy and there is a difference of about 20* between top and bottom racks..always have your remote placed next to your meat on the rack your cooking on..once you have your temp calibrated ..but for now, keep an eye on internal meat temp and when it is sone its done!
