Maverick ET 735 bluetooth Anyone?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Do ya like it, is it worth the cash?  Fixin to give one for a Christmas present along with a MES40 blue tooth. Figured to keep it all the same. Then thought I should check.

 

Gonna get it and a new shiny adjustable tube to go with the smoker. But yes I also order the cold smoker attachment also. Its all the horns and whistles that I don't have. Nephew will be starting out right.

 

So good stuff/bad stuff on the thermometers?

IMO, avoid Bluetooth.  Rather get the 733 which uses RF and has MUCH better range.

I wonder if it is the bluetooth tech that is the shortfall of these systems.  I have an pretty expensive,  (Thermoworks), bluetooth dual probe that is a big disappointment.  It's max range is 12 feet, (Through one wood frame / wood siding wall).

 

Yes:  It hurts when I sit down.  I have a bud who returned an iGrill unit with the same complaint.

 

I like the Thermoworks probes quite a bit but they are just too proud of their stuff.

 

I have several of Thermoworks high end thermometers and they all read faster and more accurately that the Maverick which I also own, however, I don't think that the small amount of extra accuracy and speed are needed in the smoking environment.

 

I guess that they have some value as "bragging rights" but most guys "in the know" will recognize me for a fool for spending that much on the therm.

 

There's my dos centavo's.
