Interesting thing about grills is that they almost always come with built-in thermometers
located in different positions. Many times they are several inches away from
the cooking grate. But how do you know if yours is accurate?
The best thing to do is get your grill up to a temperature, check the thermometer on
the dome and then also place one at the grill level.
And oven thermometer works perfect for this. And see if they match.
More than likely they don’t. Sometimes it’s simply due to the location
of the dome thermometer. Sometimes it’s just the dirty thermometer.
And other times they’re just out of sync. The best way to test is with using boiling
water. Just 112 degrees and your thermometer inserted
into that boiling water should match. Bottom line is, check your thermometer.
If it doesn’t work or is inaccurate, replace it.
Even better yet, get one that fits right on the cooking grate or use a remote thermometer.
Hey, that’s it. Thanks for watching.
