Title: Auber - Maverick Tests
Post by: MoHuka on March 01, 2013, 04:57:37 AM
I was smoking the ribs this weekend and had a thread going related to the temperature variations I had between the PID, Maverick 732 and the Bradley (DBS).  It was suggested I do a boiling water test whcih I did yesterday with the following resuts:

Maverick Oven - 212
Maverick Food - 214
Auber Oven - 208
Auber food - 212
Cooper instant read - 212

For those of you that did not follow the rib thread I had 4 degrees difference in oven temp but the Bradley was reading +60 degrees which may have been due to the mass of bricks I had on the first shelf.  Should I try any calibration or just note the differences and consider accordingly while smoking?

Another interesting observation is that I had the Auber and the Maverick on the counter waiting for the water to boil and all 4 readings were exactly the same at 73 (room temperature)

First I would throw the bricks away. Next, if you have the 1203 model PID you can set the PID to compensate for the 4 degrees (see page 14 of the manual)
