Temp probes

In calibrating a temp probe for the Remote Chek sensor, I was struck by how far off the correct temp was (255 instead of 212 in boiling water). I had 5 other probes around for the same sensor and for several polder devices. Of the six probes, 2 were within 3 degrees of 212, and 4 were way off. The problem seems to be in the probe or its wire (none of these were cooked over 350), not in the sensing devices. Therefore, there is no need to throw out the whole device; its easier and cheaper to replace the probe than buying a new polder or Remote Chek. i was setting these up to cook a lamb shoulder (Meschoi); details later.

    Could you please share what Meschoi is? We are always looking for different things to do with lamb. I don't know diddly about temp gauges!
