The ET-733 is Maverick’s latest barbecue thermometer set that comes with 2 straight hybrid probes and 2 grill clips.

Whatever combination works best for what you’re cooking. Both hybrid probe wires are 3 ft long and are rated for 716°F.
After opening the box for ET-733 you will find a transmitter that has a removable wire stand. There is also a wireless receiver that allows you to monitor 1 meat and 1 BBQ or 2 meats or 2 BBQs from an impressive distance of up to 300 feet away.
