I smoked three wild hog hams today on the same smoker, at the same time.I put a probe in the ham on the right and one in the ham on the left. Both probes were on the same unit. https://www.amazon.com/ThermoP...05B7WJVF5QEERWVSXZVY

Both temperature readings started within two degrees of each other. After a while I looked back and they were reading almost fifteen degrees different. (I was smoking at between 225 and 250 degrees). I took the Probe-2 with the high temp. and put it back into Ham-1 with the low reading. The temp started dropping immediately. I plugged Probe-1 into Ham-2 and it started rising to approximately the same temp. as Probe-2

Late in the cook, the temps got back within five degrees of each other.

I understand "stall", but this sounds ridiculous. Have you encountered anything similar?

I was questioning whether the probes were bad, but they seemed to react the same to the same piece of meat.

The ham closest to the firebox was the hotter ham. I may still get an instant-read meat thermometer, just to have a second opinion. https://www.amazon.com/Thermom...31KWFTS9V3Z8HDQNG5QY

I can recommend Thermapen. I have MK3, now there is also MK4 with fancy display function.
