Just got the PartyQ and was using it for the first time on spatchcock chicken. I usually do raised direct at 400 dome so I clipped the PartyQ to the grid and set it for 375. When the PartyQ was holding at 375, the dome thermo read 325 and my Maverick, which was clipped a few inches away from the PartyQ was showing over 400.
So, figured it was time for a boiling water recalibration, which I did this morning on the dome thermo and PartyQ (Mav manual says not to submerge probes). Both were perfectly calibrated.
While I know this isn't a big deal, the engineer part of me wants to understand how I coul be getting such different readings. Any thoughts?
