    I have an ambient probe and I just twist the wire around a hanging bar a couple times and lower it close to the center... much better than the probe, which is way off to the side, and reported to be pretty inaccurate by users more experienced with the cooker than I.

    Not sure why I’d need to do that. I had my probe hanging very close to the built in thermometer for my comparison readings.

    How about attaching your pit temp probe to the end of the built-in thermometer?

    That is what I expected to read when I saw the title of this thread.

    BTW that is a ThermoWorks Smoke. ThermoPro is an entirely different company making entirely different thermometers than the Smoke.

    I’ve heard stories here of that happening.

    I legit thought the chicken had fallen off the hooks and been saved from the coals by the deflector plate...

    That's about what I'm seeing too. I've got my probe centered about an inch off the grate. starting about 150 F, the probe and the guessometer start to diverge. At about 225 on the probe, the guessometer is about 175 and stays about 50 off the rest of the way up.

    As to fiddling with temps. I put in the same amount of charcoal each time when cooking two costco birds. I leave it wide open and be CER even look at the temps. I don’t even open it for 90 minutes when I check breast temps. Always means i need about another 15 minutes so i take one out and sauce it and put it back ,.,,, leave the other one nekkid. It is a machine

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
