    What temps do you quote when you're cooking- Lid Temp or Grate Temp?

    Fired up the performer for some chicken wings and took this pic to show the disparity between the lid thermometer and grate temp- Vastly different. I usually go by the grate temp as reported by the Maverick, how bout you? Do you take note of what the differences are so you can adjust in your...

    Is the ET-733 what I need?
