    I'm wondering where is the best spot to put thermometers in a little giant still air? Right now I have 2 in there on top of cut off paper cups about mid-egg height reading 100 & 102 steadily. If theyre sposed to be on the floor height then I need to up the temp somemore. Just want to get it right this time! Thanks for any help!

    It's recommended to place the thermometer at the top of the egg height, not the bottom. It sounds like your doing okay.
