    jlazar It should be fine. That is what I used. I was putting a new gasket on my BKK and used the left over on my probes.

    I have some leftover red silicone that came with the gasket set I bought for the WSM. Shouldn't that be safe to use where the wire meets the probe?

    use around food products .It is certified

    Forgot to ask you Spinaker. Could I use the high temp RTV thats sold in auto parks stores ? Is it food safe ? I know it comes in small tubes.

    I just read where you posted about that Spinaker. I used my old ET 73 for years & never need to replace the probes. Its in a box some where (we just moved) & I haven't found that box. So I ordered a ET 732 & spare probes from Amazon. Just never thought about some hi-temp RTV. Thank you my friend.

    barney You can also go and buy some high temp silicone and fill in where the wire meets the probe. That's what I have done, works great. And the silicone is cheap. Just a thought.

    Waterproof probes for Maverick's

    I've been checking around & found two places that sell waterproof probes for my ET 732. Just wondering if any of ya'll know anything about these ? The probes are a weak link...these might just be the fix.

    Sorry, I need to re-read the instructions to post links better.
