I have a question about checking the probe for ambient temps for accuracy. My dog ran between my LBGE and a table I use to set various tools on while I'm cooking and got wrapped up in the probe wires that were hanging out of the Egg which resulted in the TW8060 hitting the ground and the probe wires being yanked loose. Afterwards I noticed I was getting some ridiculous readings from the oven probe once I got it put back into the Egg. I've called thermoworks and spoke with a guy there last week. Long story short, he advised me the best (first) thing to try was the ice bath test. I've finally gotten around to doing that as I'm planning to cook appx 17 lbs of butts on the egg tomorrow. At any rate, the result of the ice bath test is showing my oven probe reading 33.2 degrees. Can someone tell me how much difference (if of any significance) that is going to translate to? Due to procrastinating; plus trying to be a mizer I'm going to try to make this work for at least one more cook...If its off 1.2 degrees, is it going to stay off just by 1.2 or is there some sort of a multiplier in there that I'm not aware of/thinking of? Thanks in advance!
