I have a Digi Q and a Weber digital thermometer and they are 15 degrees off how accurate is either one?

    Check both in a pot of boiling water. Should read around 212, depening on your elevation. You should be able to figure out which is off the most.
  • For what I paid for the Digi Q2 it should be the most accurate.

    It "should", but I'd still check it if I were you. Here's some info on calibrating your BGE thermometer which may help you.

    My DigiQ2 has always been right on when I check and compare it with my Thermopen before I take meat of the Egg. 
  • You can calibrate the DigiQ if you find it to be off in boiling water.  The calibration instructions should be the instructions you got with the unit.

  • I have had to replace my meat probe. My unit was just over 2 years old but gets a lot of use. If after you calibrate the probe and it doesn't read correctly, you will need to replace the probe. The controller is very accurate and I have never had a glitch while using it. A new probe was around $26, either the pit or meat.
