grouchy? 1) Please try the search box at the top of every page before you ask for help. 2) Try to post your question to the appropriate page. 3) Tell us everything we need to know to help such as the type of cooker and thermometer.

Please read this article about thermometers. 4) If you are a member of the Pitmaster Club, your comments login is probably different. 5) Posts with links in them may not appear immediately.
