I have a 1460 model and I have been using it for summer sausage . I like to start at 140 and go up 10 degrees every hour until I reach 170 and leave it there until I reach an IT of 153. I have been having problems with the temp going up to 200 plus degrees vs the "Dial " Pre set 170. Is this a problem with this model or is this what they all do ? I want the temp to equal what the dial states as I am sure most people would think!! Or at least close to it !!! For this kind of money you would think it would operate appropriately . Bologna or Summer sausage states to keep the temp in range so the casing won't explode! So do you want something that is accurate ? I would think so.
