If I am not mistaken there are longer probes available than the standard Maverick probes. I have a 40" MES and often think it would be useful if you want to reach to the bottom rack.

I ordered a set of probes directly from Maverick after I compared their price with that on Amazon. The price was just as good and I think I got free shipping. I got the 6-footers with one probe being the squared-off end smoker probe. My original probes still work fine after 4+ years. I run the wires down through the top vent on my MES 30 Gen 1. No chance of crimping that way.

Rick, I don't understand what a "squared off end" is for?

Dennis...one of the probes is long and pointed for piercing the meat. The other is shorter and rounded off on the end. It's the "chamber" probe for measuring the temp of the smoke chamber. Hope that answers your question!

By the way, I have used both probes for both jobs...its just not as easy to get the rounded off probe in to a piece of supper.

Dennis, I see that Jarhead gave you the answer. I found out when perusing the Maverick website for replacement probes you can choose to buy either two pointed probes that come--or used to come--standard with the Maverick ET-733, or you can choose one meat probe and the rounded (I said squared) off end smoker probe. That one's designed to just sit on a rack and monitor the smoker temp. I bought 6-footers. I still have my original ET-733 with the 3 ft. long meat probes and I just got a new Maverick ET-733 but haven't opened the box yet. I might do it today.
