I know what a can of worms to open. I have several taylors but they seem to always read different temps I put one in a ham last weekend and it read 95° right away. I checked it with boiling water and it read 208° so I put in my butts today and it seemed to be about 10 degrees from my other one I was using, one read 77 and the other 87 temp was closer 77. Thinking about trying a different brand, had Polders, none of them worked well at all, toss probably 4 of them after getting such inconsistent readings I even tried cooking the probes in fry oil to cook out any moisture that may have gotten in them. Mavericks don't seem to get a great review on the amazon site. I am not looking for one of the wireless ones just the kind I can stick to the side of the smoker and run the probe inside. With butts it isn't a big deal, I have done them enough to know that 13-14 hours in my cookshack puts them right where i want them. Any insight is appreciated. Thank you.
