I have a Maverick 732. It has worked great all summer but the last two cooks it has been not working right. We used in on Christmas for the prime rib and now for a pork loin yesterday, The pit probe appears to be working OK (question on that later on).
However the food probe is messed up. It says LLL. Searching for this code states the temp is too cold. OK - never did this before on cold meat (pork butt, brisket). I let it ride and after the meat starts to heat up the temp fluctuates all over the place. 100 to 80 to 50 back to LLL then back to 104 or what ever.
Also on the pit probe readings. I keep reading the grate temp should be ~25 degrees less than the dome termo (unless cooking for a longer time without opening the dome). What if I am using a raised grate like on top of the adjustable rig? ~1-2 inches above the felt line. Should the temp readings be still ~25 lower? Mine are very similar when using the raised grate.
