I am happy to say that after I posted info about the Maverick this morning, i sent them an e-mail with a few questions concerning the apparent in -accuracy of my unit. Thier reply was quick and answered my questions. They are going to send me a new probe to hopefully clear up the problem. Like Weber it's nice to deal with a company that stands behind their stuff.
