accuracy of temperature gauge on Series-B?

Did my first brisket over the weekend, which turned out great, but it was the first time I really had to keep an eye on the temps. I have a dual probe (one for the meat,one that snaps onto the grill grate). The probe was constantly reading about 45-50 degrees hotter than the temperature gauge on the Visions itself. Tested after in a conventional oven and a 200 degree oven was reading about 210 on the probe. Didn't test at higher temps, but the Visions gauge was showing around 250 and the probe would show about 305.

 

perhaps the probe gets less accurate at the higher temps, but has anyone had any issues with the gauge on the Visions being inaccurate at all?

The thermometers are fairly accurate , the problem is everyone uses the handy clip and clips it to the grate ,for it to read what the vision gauge is you have to have it in the same area you can use a skewer, stick that into the food and use the round end to clip the probe and get it at the height of the vision gauge and it will be much closer.  With that said you just have to decide which gauge you want to learn by. I myself use the vision gauge I have the maverick but only use the food probe
