It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

My Twitter enabled Egg (and a question)

Got my Stoker last week and I thought it might be fun to give my Egg it's own automated Twitter stream:

I've got two 10lb butts hanging out on it right now.

A PHP script on my server connects to the web interface every 15m, scrapes the probe info, then posts to Twitter via their API.

My question:

I've got the stoker pit probe attached to the dome thermometer (target of 250), and I've also got my Maverick pit probe at grid level (currently ~175). The built in dome thermometer registers about 225.

Is a 75 degree difference normal when you've got that much meat sitting on the grid? I'm accustomed to about 25 degree difference between the dome thermometer and the grid. This is my first time cooking this much meat.
