False Temp Readings

Just curious if the Egg will show false temp readings while cooking in direct sunlight.  I've got my doors down pretty tight, and the temp is still creeping up a little bit.  Thoughts?

    It shouldn't get more than a few degrees above ambient from the sun. I keep the lower vent open about the width of a credit card for 250*

  • no reason it would sarge. I cook in the open in the TX sun all the time and the dome temp is solid.
