Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Your Thermapen or your Maverick ET732?

    Not apples to apples-but if only one then the Thermapen. Each is set-up for different styles of cooking.

    Thermapen.
    But, if the question is whether I would believe your thermapen or maverick, I have no experience with either so I can't say.
    Test them in boiling water and see which is correct.

    I don't have a Maverick, but my Thermapen has never ever steered me wrong.

    I had a pork tenderloin on the grill using the M732.  Pulled it at 140 and brought it in.  Checked the temp with my Thermapen and it read 150.  Same probe location.  I agree on the Thermapen.

    Can the maverick be calibrated?

    I do not think so.  I will have to do another test.  I am sure I can find something to cook.

    Boil watet, check both. Should read 212 pkus or minus your sea level, for that check online.

    My Maverick meat probe is 4* high and the grate probe is 2* high.  Considering there is always potential for crushing the line or getting it wet, I tend to check those probes pretty regularly

    Depends on where it is inserted.    Poke a Thermapen in two different places, you can get two different readings.

    I think the thermapen is a higher precision instrument - but are you seeing difference in the technology or in the location in the meat ( fat pocket, near a bone, etc. )
