what a PITA to set! not sure if it's just me, or if something is not quite right with it. Probe 1 I can set the alarm temp for just fine, but can't get #2 probe to take a temp for the alarm, so just shut the alarm off
Smoked last weekend and used the Maverick for the second time. started noticing the CC temp going nuts and the internal meat temp not rising. finally dug out the old Taylor thermometer to finish the cook and tested the Maverick in ice water. one probe read 46° and the other 157° !! °
To say I am disappointed in the Maverick would be an understatement!!!
I sent Maverick a message yesterday describing what happened and received a reply today. They seem to think I fried the probes, but are sending two new ones at no charge.
I know I didn't pinch, melt or waterlog the probes as I learned the hard way on the first cheapo Taylor unit I had. Bought two more and have used them for about two years, so my treatment of the probes isn't the issue
Customer service with Maverick seems good so far. If it isn't the probes, I'm curious to see how they handle replacing the unit. Picked up a 14 pound packer today, so the trusty old Taylors will get used again
