Let me re-phrase my answer.
What Mitchamus said: you don't have to re-calibrate a thermometer for altitude. If it is right at sea level it will be right at altitude.

I'm very sorry that I wasn't clear. I did not say anything about "recalibrating for altitude". But, if you know the boiling point of water for your "elevation" (altitude) you can "test" your thermometer. I live close enough to sea level to use 212 F. Denver Bronco tailgaiters would use 202 degrees. I don't have any of the digital probes. But the manual probe that I use the most is about 2 degrees low. When probing for internal temperature, I take that into consideration.

That's the trouble with the English language, it's never clear. I really did read your post as suggesting that you need to adjust the thermometer for altitude.
Apologies. I'll shut up now.
