    I'm hoping we are getting closer on the meater too. It will be nice to not have to hassle with wires if they work AND if they ever ship. I recently downloaded the Meater app and am anxiously waiting to try it out.

    Yep, that's what I was talking about. I guess silicone only stays stable to about 400F, so it's no good for the inside of a grill. Teflon coated wires would be about the best for the heat, like the "armored" high-end probes from Fluke and ThermoWorks, but with one plug. Thanks!

    Thermoworks' customer service is surely top notch!

    I am a newbie to the different devices on the market but bought a Smoke on the recommendation of a friend. It has performed flawlessly and I am very happy at this point. (about 12 cooks with it) They have many probe styles available and I found customer service outstanding when I called with a issue.

    Do you mean silicone-sheathed wires? No I don't, never seen such a thing or know of anyone using it. But I do know DWCowles has put those heat-shrink sleeves on his Maverick probes to form a tight barrier between the probe and wire. They might even make stuff to wrap the whole wire if you wanted to experiment but that might be really bulky and counter-intuitive. That's all I've got.

    Had many along the years. Gotta say my Smoke is the best for what I need. Just the two of us, and I have never needed more than two probes. Really loving the Smoke! I have no idea what the heck I will use the Meater for if it ever shows up! LOL.

    I sold off my Maverick 732 and bought a Smoke. Got tired of probes going bad, and having to dig out the manual to remind me how to set the alarms.

    This is a good question and would like to know as well.

    Related question... Huskee You link to those WP probes, but my trouble with any of these metal-shielded probes is that the wife and kids aren't careful with them, and they get kinked easily (not for the 732 yet, but I can see it coming). Do you know of anyone whose found a good silicone-sheathed probe set for the ET-732 (both the grill and food probes)?

    ...But...it's gotta be your bull...

    If you ever have trouble with the probes reading oddly, come back here and ask. I have a few pointers, the biggest of which is in my post above. Also if you have trouble syncing them, I have tips.

    You can get a better look at a T-bone steak by sticking your head up a bulls..... but I rather take the butcher's word on it.

    Order my 732 this morning with same day delivery from grill grate, I didn't need the magnet since I have one but I have a BBQ padawan that I'm going to give it too as well as a amazingrib.com apron.

    I ordered a fireboard last Friday. Didn't get a tracking number and got worried that it was gonna take forever to get here. Monday was mlk day, so I figured it would take a week or so. Got home from work on Tuesday and bam. There it was. 'Be been doing my MCS dance since. Been waking up in the middle of the night thinking on what to try it on this weekend. My MCS was so bad that I turned the oven on just to play with it. So far all tests are going well except for when I tried to take the dogs temp. He had NO part in that. And the cats clawed the hell out of me. Guess I'll just stick to inserting them into the fridge oven and grills till I can actually cook with them
    then again why wait. I did see a bull in a pasture down te street. Wonder if he'll hold still for a temp prob? Hmmmm....

    Advantage49, I think you will enjoy The Maverick 732 & the WP Probes! No insults intended to Thermoworks but the 6 Probe FireBoard is the Cat's Pa'Toot IMHOP!

    Huskee thank you for the response and will be ordering those in addition to my 732

    I was thinking about the smoke, but the wife is getting annoyed with the cost of my hobby (however she doesn't say much when her mouth is stuffed with pork). I want to eventually upgrade to maybe a fireboard in a year or so.Thank you

    Take a look at the ThermoWorks Smoke, http://www.thermoworks.com/Smoke. I bought one a few months ago and it is built like a tank and very easy to operate. ThermoWorks has a reputation for top notch equipment and they have outstanding customer service.

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

the good one grill
The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. 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.

Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
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. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
