    I was just online getting ready to pull the trigger on a maverick et-733 and saw that they have a new Bluetooth capable et-735 that is out.

    Does anybody have one? And if so, is it a better upgrade over the 733?

    I was going back and forth between igrill2 and the maverick, but the igrill seems to be unavailable everywhere so maverick will be getting my hard earned money!

    I'm still using my two 732's still very happy with them.  When they break, I might consider...

    I don't have anything Bluetooth so I've got the ET-733 and overall like it alot.

    The Bluetooth is what concerns me. From what I've read on it, the range seems to be a sticking point. My house is concrete block so I could see it not working when I'm inside.

    I'm just gonna grab the 733 with the free bear claws on Amazon.

    That's exactly what I did. Love the maverick 733. The new one looked interesting, but it is not wifi. I was hoping to have the ability to see my smoke from any smartphone or tablet. I was doing ribs a few weeks ago and had to go to the mall for a few hours. It was making me nuts not knowing what was going on with my smoke. If this new one had wifi, I would have ordered already. But weather Bluetooth, or my phone, still can only see from my house. :devil:

    I wanna give this thread a bump because I just found out about the 735 with bluetooth and curious if anyone has gotten it yet?!  I can understand the concern with the bluetooth and losing line of sight, but i'm looking for this for competitions because then i'm always in a straight shot from the smoker...usually less then 30 feet away :)

    I got the 733 and couldn't be more happier. It suits my needs but I could see the advantage of being able to monitor 4 temps with the 735.

    i've got the 32 and 33....both great thermos but the 735 with 4 probes and bluetooth might be the end all be all i'm looking for :)

    Have you considered an igrill2? That was originally my plan but they were out of stock for the longest time.

    Also typing in SMOKE during checkout gave you a free ambient temp probe. That's what I wanted and I thought the igrill, the two probes and the temp probe for $99 was a good deal.

    I just went on the website, added the igrill2 and the temp probe and typed in the coupon still works!! Now if the wife would never find out, I woulda hit "buy" 😏

    I've actually seen mixed reviews on the iGrill and maverick is proven with a long track record....also cheaper :)

    I have the 735 but have not used it yet. When I checked probes in boiling water I went to the end of our house (about 60 fee) and it was reading the probes just fine.

    I got a 735 from Marty over at Owens BBQ and love it!
    It's nice to be able to work around the house or yard and not have to carry a receiver around with ya.
    I would loose signal all the time with the 32's and 33's but so far the 35 has been flawless (maybe a dozen cooks with it)

    Awesome feedback guys thanks! I'm going to get one. Does the software work on both iPhone and Android phones? 

    I agree @DanMcG  i hate how the receiver loses connection all the time....but blue tooth has the same sort of "line of sight" issues when you stream music for example, but usually doesn't fully lose connection so i feel like it'll rebound with the Maverick more consistently.

    I have two older Mavericks and they have treated me well, but the probe life is not good.  Never been wet, just stopped working eventually.  I just purchased 4 new 6' hybrid probes for $60 and hope I can get a decent life out of them.  I'm going to try putting some shrink wrap around the wire/probe connection point and maybe along the wires where they come in contact with my grill lid in order to lessen the wear.  We'll see how that works.

     In summary:  Maverick unit = good    Probes = not so good.
