    I piled some lump in the bottom of the clean egg, started a half a chimney of lump then dumped it it. Temp went to 300, after dialing the bottom down a bit were stable at 250 or so.

    Question, I layed my Igrill probe on the grill next to the slabs. The temp on the thermometer on the dome shows a lil over 200, If i was aiming for 225, what temp would you believe????

    Have never cooked on an egg, but I would believe the Igrill thermometer more.  Also, the two thermometers are sampling 2 different locations, 1 on the grill (closer to the heat source), 1 on the dome so probably some difference in temperatures.

    Best bet is to calibrate it in boiling water. The i-Grill should beon , but younever know!😂

    Have fun and . . .:biggrin:
