Remote Thermometer Transmitter Placement

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Bought a Mav ET-73, dual probe. The transmitter unit has a wire hanger on it. I know the oven probe gets hung on a rack. Does the transmitter get hung inside the smoker as well. Made of plastic, so that would surprise me but I'm a newby so what do I know. I guess u could run the probe wires through the top vent and put the transmitter on top of the cabinet. I'd appreciate some insight.

Transmitter goes outside the unit.  And far enough from any heat to be safe!

 

Good luck and good smoking.

The wire thingy on your transmitter?  That is to stand it up so you can read it.

 

Preferably standing near the smoker with a cold beer.

 

You already know what the receiver is for!  :biggrin:

 

Good luck and good smoking.

Thanks. Good info. Not much of a stand. Probably work great if I were trying to stand it up on a plate full of Play-Doh.

I used to put mine on a chair when it was new. Now I just hang it on the side of my smoker. Easier and it don't touch the smoker when hangin. I wouldn't do at temps over 350 though, then maybe I would:icon_lol:

Finally, a day without rain. I just seasoned my Bradley for 1 hour at 150*F and the top, bottom and sides stayed at outdoor ambient temp the whole time. Guess I can just sit the transmitter on top of the cabinet.

I have MES smokers for 4 years, and I use the ET-732.

The stock probes wires are so short, I have found the best way for me. I run the probe wires through the top vent, and pull them to where I want them. Then I lay the transmitter on the top of the MES, as far to the left as possible. Then I put a piece of electrical tape on the probe wires, so they don't move.

 

If my probe wires ever go bad, I'm going to get the longer ones. I think they come in 6 footers.

I had to buy a replacement probe and Todd sent me the longer ones.

 

They are great.

 

No problems since replacing the original probe either.

 

Good luck and good smoking.
