I used the Maverick ET-732 for a cook last weekend, and it seemed like all was going well. Had my WSM at 225 pretty much the whole time, but my spareribs were not passing any of the usual 'doneness' tests even after 7.5 hours, and internal temp was just over 150.
After I finally took them off and let the wsm cool down, I took the probe off at around 150F... and when I did the probe stayed at 150. I tried turning it off/on, unplugging/replugging the probe, making sure it was seated etc. Never got it wet or submerged it in water, but I was running the cord under the lid, not through the vent.
I did run the tip under cold water AFTER i saw the problem, just to see if the temp would drop, and it stayed at 150 then as well... Just wondering if many others here have experienced this. I see the 732 pretty highly regarded here, but on Amazon.com I found some others with the same issue I saw. It seems like a really valuable tool, I'd love to be able to keep using it, but if I can't trust the temps it reads then it becomes pretty worthless... especially if I dont' realize it until the end of the cook : /
I'm a newbie when it comes to smoking though, that was my first try so I might just be using it incorrectly?
