Indeed Quest you need to have the TC mounted in through one of the holes
that mounts the viewing window to measure BT. The stock thermometer hole is
for measuring ET. Your previously stated temps make much more sense for ET!
But while tracking ET is certainly beneficial, tracking BT much more
meaningful in any discussion of roast levels, ramp rates etc.

Ultimately the quest for Koffee Nirvana is a solitary path. To know I must
first not know. And in knowing know I know not. Each Personal enlightenment
found exploring the many divergent foot steps of Those who have gone before.

I'll switch my thermocouple to F to see what happens.  Perhaps I'll also try
to switch where the thermocouple enters the quest. Mine is currently on the
top.  I believe I ready where it should be in the bottom hole.  I'll try
that this week.

Thanks for the advice.
