Dome Thermometer upgrade?

I have been fighting with my dome thermometer.. I calibrated it about 4 weeks ago and rechecked it yesterday because it just not seem right.. It turned out to be dead on in boiling water though.. I have seen 100 degree differences between my digital and dome temps.. Is this normal??

Either way, is there a dome thermometer upgrade anyone could recommend?

Thanks!

    Get a maverick. The therms IMHO are worthless.
    When in doubt add more pepper.

    Doesn't matter who the manufacturer is-if it's calibrated and holds calibration then it's good...chances are you are measuring in different locations and that would lead to different readings.  FWIW-

  • Mickey:
    My egg is 2 months old,

    GLW: i already have a maverick (which I love for lower heat cooking/smoking)

    lousubcap: i was afraid of that lol... I am really still learning. For instance, last week i just couldnt get the temperature to get above 400 degrees. After a while i decided to throw a whole dump of new coals on top, and sure enough, after 10 minutes it went all the way to 700!

    Thanks for the suggestions!
