    Default maverick question

    i was curious if anyone has had issues with the meat probe? i love my maverick, but tonite it was reading 10 degrees higher than it should be.i double checked the meat with 2 other meat thermometers and they were consistantly 10 degrees less. so i left it alone til after dinner and tested all 3 of them with boiling water. all of them were within 1.5 degrees of 212.

    my only crackpot theory is that it was a small 3 lb hunk of meat, on order to get the tip of the probe in the center of the meat, i could only out it in about 2 inches deep. which left like 75% of the metal probe out in the heat. i can only guess it conducted enough heat to rise the temp of the probe.

    thoughts or similar issues?

    thanks gang!!

    I've never noticed anything like that with mine. Your theory may be right or might have been a hot spot in the meat due to the texture or fat pocket .. hard to say really. But it checked out afterwards so just keep an eye on it next time to see if your thought may be in play.

    No chickens were harmed in this statement. But it doesn't mean I didn't want to.
