I made comparison again on gas stove, the old big probe and the new small probe on WOLF and wireless thermometer. Small probe responds faster than big probe. But this difference of responding speed can be ignored. It is nothing but 10 to 20 seconds.
Also I find probe position is very sensitive. When doing test, you must band two probes together.
One on left and the other on right, then exchange position. also put one on top the other, and then exchange position.
My first cook I used a lime and thought that threw off the temps so then I removed it from the lime and stuck it in with the Maverick stand like this, the red line is where I had the Dog probe.



The temps still bounced up and down between 1F - 50F at any given time even though I did not use a lime. If you want you can send me the smaller probe and ill do some comparison test in my kettle, I probably wont be doing any more cooks until spring since its too cold out for me.

pardon my poor English, what do you mean by lime.
Is it something like orange.
If yes, it must be WET, which can LOWER temperature of probe.
This must be the reason why DOG is always lower than Maverick.
The lime I used was actually from a previous cook so it was completely dried out, I kept it to use as a stand for the Dog probe.

Ill do the testing and report back to this thread. Can you also send me a clip for the new probe? This will eliminate any errors in terms of touching the grill and causing off temp readings.

Thermometers

I was doing a some chicken yesterday in my safe all was well for about an hour. I went out just to check the temp and my door thermometer read 450 degrees, WTH I checked my remote thermometer and it was 325. The chicken came out great but I did a check on my door thermometer and it was way off close to 300 in boiling water and it would not go below 70 in the freezer. I know its been said before but its just an example of don't trust any thermometer completely. On a side note this thermometer is adjustable but I couldn't get it to read right if I corrected for the boiling temp them low end was off and vice versa its only about 6-7 months old Ill give Pitmaker a call and see what happens.

Just wanted to update this thread, I received the new probe and clips and they look great. Unfortunately there was a pretty big snow storm here recently and I have put away my kettle for the winter.

I will report back when I complete some testing on the Kettle. I may do the ice water+boiling water test with the new probe since thats indoors but any testing in my Kettle will probably be in Spring or when the weather permits.

If you have a ceramic smoker, will you do smoking in winter.
I am thinking to sell 10" to 12" dia. Kamado, which can be sent via post office door to door directly to Canada and UK. With my controller, you do not need to stand at yard to take care of it. Maybe it can be used in winter

For me personally I wouldnt do any BBQing in the winter, I just dont think its worth it. A few days ago we had a snow storm and had 50cm of snow. It is supposed to snow all day today as well and we are expected to get another 50cm. If I lived some where that it snowed lightly I would think about it but where I live it snows way too much.

IN Beijing our day time temperature is -5C. light snow a few times.
This winter seems the coldest!
Still I can do smoking by ceramic pit in my yard.
My Brother lives in Toronto, temperature there is higher than in Beijing.
But Beijing is more south than Toronto.

Our summers are warm and humid but our winters are cold and snowy. We havent had snowfall here like this since March 2010 but normally during the coldest part of winter we get as low as -30C. I had a friend whos parents were from Beijing, her dad thought he knew what winter was but quickly learned its very different in Canada with the wind chill.

2010-2012 was unusually warm for us here in Toronto and we have had very little snowfall until now.

I do some BBQ in the winter on my Visions ceramic. I smoked a pork butt a couple weeks ago at -20C. Started about 10:00 P.M. and got the temp to 225F with the Golden Dog controller. Next morning temp was still at 225, but a few hours later I ran into a problem I hadn't anticipated. Condensation had dripped on the fan, got inside, and froze the trap door shut. Worked O.K. after I got it cleaned out again. Looks like I will have to mount the fan in a box and get the stainless hose. I would also be very interested in your 12" dia. Kamado. What would be the price of it?

I take it the controller itself was fine @ -20C?

Did you have something protecting it from the wind or was it just out in the open?

Yes, the controller itself was fine. I had it in a plastic box. Now I'll have to use a bigger one so I can put the fan in also when I get the hose.

If you want to use my corrugated hose, you need full system.Only corrugated hose does not work for you.
At each end of corrugated hose I weld adapters for fan and for smoker.
price of the fan adapter, corrugated hose, and adapter to smoker US$50
free SAl mail
free plastix box
