I am on only my second cook. I bought an AR combo today so I could cook raised easier. I have had a little trouble getting the dome temp to stabilize prior to putting the mavrick dual probe and the spatchcock chicken on the grate. I am going for direct at 400F. But I ended up seeing my grate temp soar to around 433F with the dome at 350 after having the dome open to put it all on. I checked for a crimped cable or the probe touching something it shouldn't but I am using the probe clip and it is 1.5" off the grate. I have the meat probe in the breast of one of the two chickens on the egg. Probably no issue now, I pulled the probe and moved to another place on the grate, but same as before, 1.5" off the grate, 2" from the edge and 2" from the birds, so no interferance. But this time it seems to be working better. My temp is still low at 343 and climbing, but it should come back up to the 400 I had stable before I put them on. Any ideas on this one?
Just far enough north of DFW to be "rural"...and close enough to be urban, depending on my mood.
