I have 2 butts (8 pounds each) in the home stretch. I am getting very inconsistent reading in both of the butts. Never worried about this before, just stuck the Maverick probe in and took it off at 195. I guess I am paying more attention since I only have 1 probe for 2 pieces of meat.
Using the Thermapen, I am getting readings that vary from 175 to 196 in both pieces. Thermapen and Maverick read the same when they are beside each other. I am going to cooler them for about 5 hours so I figure I have a little wiggle room on the temps.
I moved the Maverick 3 inches on the larger piece (same thickness) and it went from 196 to 183. Is this normal? Any suggestions?
Also accidentally bought without the bone so that doesn't help me.
