1st cook on my Excel 20 - temp gauge seems way out

Post  xxredmaxx on Thu Sep 04, 2014 8:02 pm

I am loving my new excel 20. Did a whole free range chicken from my local butcher covered with my basic rub.

I would post a pic but as a new member i am not allowed until next week.

Had issues with the temp gauge in the lid though which showed much cooler then my ET73.
I swapped it for the gauge off my ugly drum smoker and it showed pretty much the same as the ET73

Is this normal or should I return the gauge for a more accurate one?

Thanks for the link.

The problem is that the instructions refer to a second nut on the back of the gauge but all I have is the nut and washer that secured the gauge to the lid - no second nut or any way to adjust the needle.

I have an instant boiling hot water tap which produces water at a consistent 99 degrees centigrade but if I stand the gauge in it it barely gets above 80.

Oh, well, in that case it does sounds like it probably needs replacing....
