Help with my new Maverick

I just got a new Maverick 732. I am planning an overnight pork butt cook next weekend and need to confirm that the temp on the grid probe should be around 225*? I have two 9 lb butts.
TIA

    250 will be easier to hold and won't make a difference to your cook

    I shoot for 235 during the day, 245 at night. I've had to many 225 nights where the fire died. I'll also do a manual ramp mode @ 250 until internal gets to about 150 if I'm in a hurry.

    Yep, 240 to 250's the spot. Like they said, easier to keep the fire going.

    forget the grid temp. clip the mav probe to the dome thermometer probe and set the mav at 250°. supposedly, 250 dome ≈ 225 grid, but I can't say for sure since I've never measured it - never cared what grid temp is.

    Mike, how do you clip the grid temp probe to the dome therm Stem?? I'd like to try it, but dont know how you'd do it.

    Since you really have no control over the grid temp just set the dome to 250 like everyone and cook away.

    I don't mean to jump in on Michael, but you can just remove your Dome thermometer and stick the grid probe through the hole. What I often do is stick the grid probe down through one of the butterfly holes in the DFMT. Either way, it will hang there OK :)

    I agree! Grid temp in most cooks is not important.

    Thanks everyone. Makes sense. I guess i was hung up on the name "grate probe".
