Got up early, fired up the Weber 26, had it holding at 225 even though it was about 17 degrees when I started. At least my beer wasnt getting warm. Put a ham and a turkey side by side, and started pulling a nice blue smoke. Put the lid on and watched the temp not move at all. The thermo had dropped as low as it could while I was loading the grill and now it wouldnt come back up. Opened the bottom vents to about half and still nothing. Then I put my hand on the lid and realized it was too hot to touch. It was then I realized the probe on the grill lid was firmly nestled in the turkey breast. I will file that one away for future reference.

I've done that on my BGE! Add a spacer on the outside to hold the tip of the probe away from the meat!

Good luck with the cook! Don't forget to post pictures!
