    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.

                          The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                          Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

                          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.

                          Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

                          Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
                          Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

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

                          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.
