    Jersey WSM Smoker here!

    This site is single handedly responisble for gross amounts of delicious bbq eating in my household!! I mostly smoke on my WSM 22.5, but occasionally throw a few smoke bombs on the gas grill with steaks. I currently use the Maverick ET732 dual probe setup. However I'm the market for a different setup due to some recent probe issues. I also use a Thermapen instant read.

    Welcome Jersey man!! Do you raise Jersey dairy cattle, or live in Jersey??

    Have you tried drying the probes in a 350 degree oven for a couple hours?

    Sometimes moisture at the wire/probe juncture is the cause of failure.

    I had one probe still living after over 2.5 years on my 732. I just got in two hybrid probes.

          Live in Jersey. The rubber seal on the grill probe failed and the thermocouple inside became gummed up. I took it apart and carefully cleaned it once. The second time I had to clean it, the thermocouple wire broke.

            Probes are pretty much the weakest link. I let mine gum up beyond belief. I only worry about clean tips where the sensor is at, and those might get wiped off every 6 months or so. I periodically dry off in the oven (once or twice a year).

              Welcome to The Pit bken1313! Thanks for joining up with us. Try getting ahold of Maverick at www.maverickhousewares.com. Depending on how old your unit is they may be able to help you out if it's in warranty. Their probes are like lightbulbs, you just never know. I have a probe that's 3.5 years old heavy use, and works great to this day but I've also lost many.

              Since this is your first post, please check out our homework assignment post for new members, it contains a few how-tos and please-dos.

              Also, it's very important that you add the domain AmazingRibs.com to your email safe list in case you are ever drawn as our monthly Gold Medal Giveaway winner!

                    Thanks Huskee. I will check out the link.
                    John, I have not made any mods to the smoker. I have not had any issues keeping temp, so have not needed any mods.

                        Welcome, Jersey Boy. I envy your 22.5. I have the 14.5 and although it's a great little cooker capacity can be an issue, particularly with pork ribs.
