it seems as if my Traeger temp probe even after calibration is always 7-10 out from other methods of temp reading.

I usually use x2 Weber igrill 2 probes and the Traeger and get readings like this:

132f (weber)
135f (Weber
121f (Traeger)

133f (Thermapen mk4)

I go by my hand probe reading as being the most accurate because its good quality.

It seems as the Traeger probe is a bit too long in length? And if inserted not far enough the exposed part of the probe is subject to potentially picking up more on the ambient temps?

I know some may say its not 100% nessesary to use probes and not to worry etc. I dont always however is something I have noticed when I do use the Traeger in conjunction with others its always off the mark.
 
When I calibrated my traeger probe I ended up being +/- 2 degrees but the Thermapen is my last check.
 
Mine is about 1 degree off in either direction when calibrated. Always use a real thermometer to vefify the final temperature.
