For this week’s review I was sent the Maverick ET-732 Wireless Barbecue Thermometer Set from Darren Keller at Maverick Industries, Inc.
The Maverick ET-732 is a barbecue thermometer set that comes with 2 thermometer probes. One probe monitors the food temperature and the other is an ambient temperature probe which monitors the smoker or grill temperature. Both probe wires are heat-resistant to 716 degrees.
After opening the Maverick ET-732 you will find a transmitter that has a removable wire stand. There is also a wireless receiver that allows you to monitor both probe temperatures from an impressive distance of up to 300 feet away. The wireless receiver includes a belt clip and built-in stand.
The wireless receiver beeps and flashes when the food temperature goes above the temperature you programmed before your cook or if your smoker or grill temperature goes above or below the programmed range that you have set.
The wireless receiver also has a back light for use at night and displays barbecue temperatures up to 572 degrees.
After easily syncing the wireless receiver to the transmitter I was ready to program the food and smoker temperatures into the remote receiver.
The food temperature range on the ET-732 is 32-572 degrees and the smoker or grill temperature range is 32-554 degrees.
I set the food temperature alarm to go off once the thigh of the beer can chicken reached an internal temperature of 170 degrees. I then set the smoker high alarm temperature to 300 degrees and the low alarm to 200 degrees.
Once I had everything setup on the wireless receiver and my 18.5 WSM was up to 250 degrees, I placed the beer can chicken on the smoker and inserted the food probe into the thigh of the chicken. I also attached the ambient temperature probe with its included clip to the smoker grate. I then placed the transmitter on a table next to the smoker.
The wireless receiver worked great throughout my entire house and never once lost connection from the transmitter.
When the alarm beeped that beer can chicken had reached the internal temperature of 170 degrees I removed the food probe from the chicken and brought it inside to eat.
I am really impressed with the Maverick ET-732. It was really easy to sync the wireless receiver to the transmitter and also setting all the temperatures was a breeze as well.
I really enjoyed the size of the wireless receiver. I clipped it to my belt and was able to go inside the house and work on the sides for our meal.
The only thing I didn’t like about the Maverick ET-732 was the length of the 2 probes that were included. They are both 3 ft, which made it so I had to have the transmitter sitting really close to my smoker. I did find out that you can order 6 ft replacement probes from Maverick, so that would fix the issue I had.
A couple other nice things about the ET-732 is that your meat, barbecue and timer settings are stored even if the unit is turned off. There is also a count up and count down timer. Another great thing is the food probe wire can be inserted 6 inches into the meat for those larger cuts.
If you are looking for a great quality barbecue thermometer that includes 2 probes and a wireless receiver, this is one of the best units you will find on the market today!
The Maverick ET-732 now comes in 3 new colors: Black, Silver and Copper.
