It may have been that your meat was too cold at the start up. When the meat temp is below 50 degrees, the meat probe will not read correctly. This is probably the reason you started getting temp readings later on after the meat warmed up.
Last summer, my probe read HI a couple of times as well. I was smoking in Phoenix and it was prpbalby 110 degrees or higher outside. I moved my 025 to the shade and it seemed to stop. I can't remember if I removed the probe and inseted it again or not. It has not done that again so far.
For those that may search "HI" in the future let me tell you what cookshack told me to test. They said to set the temp to 140 degrees and then nstick my probe in th vent to see if it also show 140 or as they said pretty darn close. I am testing this now. But the smokers past 140 and is now in the 200 degree range so I am waiting to see if this settles down before I place the probe into the vent hole. Well temp still climbing so I have place probe thinking the two are trying to sync up. We shall see. Well probe says HI that interesting ....still waiting...time for a glass of wine. Well temp now at 275 and probe says Hi. Calling cookshack again tomorrow.
