I got the new one for Christmas and it works great. I wish it was a little more user friendly and/or flexible.
One thing I've noticed, however, is just how inaccurate the thermometer on my egg is / has been. I put my probe at mid meat height and my temp is about 30* higher in reality than the egg thermo says.
Is this well known? The egg thermo is about 4-5" higher in the dome but I'd think it would be higher temp than meat level up there -- or is it opposite?
