Put your Maverick or equivalent on your cooking grate and heat up your drum to your common cooking temp i.e 250. Calibrate your RC to the Mav and you'll be happy. Don't calibrate to freezing unless you cook at 32 degrees.

I checked them against an Auber temp controller and a thermapen. I have a strain relief bushing installed and can just slide the probes in.

Seriously JP ...from someone that cold smokes on a regular basis we don't cold smoke at 32 degrees LOL, you know the average cold smoke is in the 50-80 degree range at ambient temps. I never knew a block of cheese that can accept smoke in a frozen state.

You know what i meant by calibrating at hot cooking temps....just trying to help you
