Yowza. Just happened to wake up and my dome temp snuck up to 300 on me! The grate temp is 247 on my new Maverick (set an alarm for 255, which had not triggered yet). The dome thermometer is calibrated. Haven't calibrated the maverick yet. Is this a reasonable discrepancy betw dome and grate?
I've only done a couple of butts before. Am I ok since the temps rose on me like that? I'm assuming this isn't the end of the world, but I wish it hadn't spiked on me. No telling how long it's been cruising at this temp, but it could have been a couple of hours. . .
