    Maverick ET-735 - now on my holiday wish list

    Just saw this in the new catalog I got from Firecraft today, taking pre-orders for shipping in January. Maverick ET-735 - Bluetooth - Iphone or Android apps - up to 4 probes and the 2 that are included at $79.99 are waterproof. Won't need to use two 732's anymore.


    My ICelsius was shipped off last week to get checked on.

      Very cool. I'm checking this out! Thanks TB


      Awesome find! This looks to be very promising.


        They had to ruin it with Bluetooth & no receiver didn't they. All I want is a 4-probe unit with a receiver AND the option for tying into wifi for phone/tablet/PC use. I think they missed the target on this one. Sorry to be the negative Ned.


          With the close proximity of my Pit Barrel to the back door (5ft), I don't think the tooth will be a problem with 10ft of reception. With an offset smoker, that might be a problem. hehehehehe


            The radio range of the current Mavs beats the range of Bluetooth. Step backwards if you ask me. If you're within BT range for your setup there's no issue I suppose.


              What exactly is the purpose of bluetooth. Was it for people with headsets for their phones?


                I think they messed up with the bluetooth. Hopefully they will have an option for a regular receiver as well.
                Wifi would have been way better than Bluetooth


                  Probably not going to get Wifi for under $100. Maybe the price point was tops on the list to start with.


                    Agreed on the Bluetooth. Everything else sounds promising, though.


                      I will take three maybe four, thank you


                        It was originally invented as a wireless replacement for the old RS-232 data cable. Short range, low bandwidth applications. Requires very little power. Doesn't need line of sight. Headphones, speakers, keyboards/mice, and a variety of industrial connections. I have a diabetes blood sugar meter that transmits data to my iPhone via bluetooth. Class 1 bluetooth actually has a maximum range of 300 feet, but who knows what Maverick is using since the device is not on their website yet. I never get that much on my ET-732, which is annoying because my bedroom is at the opposite end of the house from my equipment.

                          Thanks. Techy I ain't.....

                        With Bluetooth, you only need the ET-735 transmitter and your smartphone/tablet. You don't need a router like you do with WiFi. And no one has questioned what RF band they've been using all along to connect the transmitter and receiver.

                        To be honest with you, the idea of replacing the receiver with my tablet (so I can still use my phone for phone things) is pretty appealing. I have 2 ET-732 sets that have always worked flawlessly. I'll bet a shaker of my favorite rub that the delivered ET-735 will perform better than you're expecting.

                        But that's just my opinion...and I could be wrong.


                          I'll be one of the first on the block to run one. I think WiFi has a way to go. It RediCheck gets in that game (wifi) it will be a hit in my opinion. They seem to have a good handle on the bbq/smoker market where other makers seem to fall short.

                          Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                          The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                          The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                          The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                          Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

                          This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

                          Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                          The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                          Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                          We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.
