Ok, I smoked 4 butts this weekend - two on the bottom and two on the top grid. The butts on the top touched the dome thermometer (BGE brand). Didn't think much of it but soon realized that the thermometer wasn't working. No big deal because I have my Maverick wireless one. That one worked great until I took two of the butts off. After that, the temperature really spiked, at least on the display - I do not think in the egg.
So, tonight I try my first pizza on the egg. Didn't even think about look at the dome one because one look tells you that it is screwed. Put the Maverick back to work and it was fine for a while. After about 550, it started reading HHH. WTF?
Any thoughts? What can I replace my dome thermometer with?
