    Someone stole my Maverick 732, what should I get to replace it with Bluetooth?

    I've been keeping all my BBQ stuff in a big plastic tub at the bar since that's where I've been doing all my cooking lately. I was doing some oven cooking so I stopped by to grab my Maverick. I guess someone saw me cooking with it and tasted the results and wanted it, because it's gone now. Man, that thing was like $70, ouch. I bought it because it's what all you pros use and it got a big recommendation from Meathead.

    I made some really spectacular food with it. Most recently I used it to cook the Thanksgiving turkeys correctly without drying them out. People said it was juicy and was the best they've had. But now that I have to buy another, I find myself wanting one with a bluetooth connection so I can get a fancy graph of time and temperature. I've looked at the reviews database but they seem to be from 2014 or so and I know a lot of new equipment has come out since then. I see the Smoke is the new kid on the block and would be my first choice, but it's more expensive than the Maverick and doesn't have bluetooth.

    What?.... your maverick is lost in China? No way. I would get the same one again or an igrill2. Good luck. FYI, the maverick is still less expensive in my neck of the woods. I would get a safe and lock your bbq stuff in it along with your daily bar earnings

      Well, it's not my bar, just a friend's. He liked my BBQ so I brought all my stuff there and cook sometimes on Sundays. I get bar credit and practice, he gets great food for his customers. It's winter now anyway, nobody will come to my house for a cookout because it's too cold.

    Maverick ET-735 and iGrill seem to be a couple of popular Bluetooth options. I'm not sure if Ivation makes a knockoff Maverick ET-735. They do make regular Maverick knockoffs that work pretty good.

    Just remember that Bluetooth units typically do not have near the range/distance capabilities as the dedicated wireless units. You aren't going to be able to pick up a signal or walk as far away from the transmitter with a Bluetooth unit as you will be with a regular Mav.

    Good luck. I assume you are going to order and pick it up during your trip back to the states.

      Lost in China , in regards to the Smoke. They are coming out with another accessory for it in 2017 called Gateway. It is going to use wifi signal to link to your phone and an app on your phone. There is rumors it will include graphing. Check out Thermoworks website for more info.

    Lost in China, I recently, before Thanks Giving, received My FireBoard 6 Probe Wireless, iCloud Bluetooth Thermometer! I used it on the T'sG'g Bird! It is compatable with the iPhone and the iPad! You can name each Probe and set the alarms for each! This was a Kickstarter Project I Backed! For your info Meathead and AR gave it a Gold Rating Recently! You can find it at www.fireboard.com . It also has graphing capabilities! The people at RireBoard are Very Helpful and Service Orientated! I also have a Maverick 733, it's Great but Difficult to Set!

    I'd say Meater, but that's vaporware right now.

      Another issue is the phone software. It's really easy to make a crap app which never gets updated. I hardly ever see any screenshots, interface reviews, etc.

      I'm going to go with the Smoke. If it's getting an upgrade next year then it's worth it. I really like the Thermoworks brand. They don't just make crap consumer goods, they're a professional scientific measurement company. I'm also getting 4 RT600C handheld units to give as gifts so I save on shipping and put it all in the same order. They're only $16 right now so it was a no-brainer. Thanks for everyone's advice! I was leaning towards the Smoke anyway. The hint that the Gateway is coming out sealed the deal.

    The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

    the good one grill

    The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

    The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it.

Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

The beefy hardwood handle provides a comfortable grip secured by three hefty rivets. He has machine washed his more than 100 times. They have never rusted and they stay shiny without polishing.
