Hi, was just approved as member.  I am in silicon valley in CA and have had my large egg for about 12 years. Glad to have access to the site! I have done a fair amount of smoking with variable results (usually a result of forgetting that something needs to be smoked indirectly rather than directly LOL).  I have a question about thermometers.  I just replaced my original thermometer with one from smokeware as I felt I was not getting accurate temps.  The smokeware one doesn't seem to be any better.  they both read quite high.  With the smokeware I have a hard time getting the temp below 300.  Last two times I smoked I used thermoworks smoke thermometer at the grill level and that seems the best way to go but the alarms drive me nuts!!  I have tried using less charcoal but if smoking for a long time I am afraid it will run out and I have not figured a way to add it if I am using the plate setter. Any help on this would be appreciated.  When I first started using my egg I did not have these problems.  Recently I have been using the Kamado large lump charcoal and am wondering if that is the problem since the pieces are so large.
