    Guys,

    I just received a shipment of the new Maverick ET-732 Wireless BBQ Thermometers.

    UPS guy just dropped them off, so this is my first test and I'll post updates later.

    First thing you'll notice are the antennas.

    I placed the transmitter in the garage, and was able to receive a signal anywhere on the first floor and in every room of the 2nd floor.  Received signal in every room in the basement.  There is also an out of range signal on the new model ET-732.

    More tests and features to follow.

    Available for $59.99 on my website: http://www.amazenproducts.com

    $5 shipping applies to all order over $49 thru December 31st!

    I guess I will have to order one once  I figure out my new computer software and get everything reloaded... Which I might say is becoming a big pain in the >>>.

    KEWL!   That's really great, since I burnt out the oven probe on my old ET-73 at Thanksgiving doing my turkey

    Retread,

    You do know you can get a new probe for a couple bucks too?

    I keep a couple spares around.

    I gotta get one of these new ones too.

    I usually have an extra piece of meat in the smoker, that I'm sure feels neglected without a hole stuck in it!

    Just wanted to say thanks Todd, to bad all the sites don't get the orders in and out like you do.

    One question, will it come in the regular mail or will it be on the brown truck?

    I think it depends on how dirty your USPS truck is, he usually ships USPS

    Yeah, Bear, I know you can get new probes, and I probably will.  However, I do have issues with the transmission range on my current unit, too.  I'm really looking forward to the new one!

    Exactly my thoughts!

    Now and then my 73 loses contact, because of the steel front door, but it never loses contact from my basement curing fridge to my Dining room.

    I want to get the stronger range 732 for my main smoking therm, and use the 73 for a second piece of meat. I will continue to keep the 73 in my curing fridge too.

    I have the smoker probe just hanging in the fridge to monitor the air temp change, and I keep the meat probe in a half bottle of water, to monitor what it should be in the meat.

    The air in that fridge varies from about 31˚ to 41˚, and the meat never goes below 36˚, or above 38˚. Exactly what I want.

    I don't use the freezer in that fridge (except for half bottles of frozen water), because if you keep a combination fridge/freezer set high enough to keep the fridge at 37˚, the freezer is too high for my liking!

  17. Aside from the antennas, any differences from the other ones?

    Yes

    Better Range/Reception

    Out of Range Indicator

    Buttons are more accessible

    Better Quality Buttons

    The ET-73 is still a good workhorse, and though the newest model may have some upgrades, the ET-73 performs well for a lot less $$$.

    Thanks to everyone who jumped in and ordered the new Maverick ET-732's!!!

    I SOLD OUT over the weekend, and checked with Maverick for additional units.  We won't see more inventory until after Christmas.
