I have an MES 40 and need Christmas ideas to give my family. What is the best or most recommended replacent internal and smoker tempt combo available?
I actually need to change my location. Just moved to Forest, Ms. about 3 weeks ago. My wife runs one of the stores at the new mall in Pearl and I'm over security in one of the high end stores.I see you are from Batesville. Brandon here. lovely weather we've had the last few days eh?
maverick 732. its wireless and has two probes. one for the smoker which can alarm if temp too low or too high and one for the meat which alarms at high. its waterproof and has a really good range. my mes temp display can be as much as 30 degrees off in cold/windy weather so I would definitely recommend one of these jewels. besides the amnps its the best money ive spent on smoking equipment.
I've heard a lot about the Maverick and that is prolly what I will go with. They are around $70, correct?
I do have an AMNPS but haven't had much luck since I got it. Haven't really had time to play with it much since the move and been so busy opening the new store. Not going to give up though. I also have one of the cold smoke units for the MES but haven't used it yet.that's great! you are even closer now!
yes, I got mine from Todd as well when I bought the AMNPS (which incidentally if you don't have one of those that would also be a GREAT addition to your MES). one of the probes burned out after about 2 months so I called Todd and asked what I should do. I was also ordering more pellets at the time. he was very gracious and said to send him the bad probe and he would send me a replacement in the box with my pellet order. its been doing great ever since.
MES + AMNPS + Mav 732 = truly setting and forgetting. if im doing a large brisket or butt I will put it on at midnight, fill up the amnps, set the maverick and go to sleep. if I hear it beep I know something is wrong (its usually the 12 year old opening the door and taking peeks)
yep, same here but I think it would be really cool to be wifi connected to my computer. Probably overkill as it is not rocket science but would be fun. I saw that about the hybrid probes too. wondering what that means and yes I hope the stay with the same probe jacks. I already have two mav's that are not interchangable.
supposedly the 733 comes with "hybrid" probes as opposed to the 732 with one dull probe and one sharp probe. they didn't have pics on amazon of the probes so i don't know what a "hybrid" probe looks like. the term seems to indicate you could either for either. hopefully that's the case. and also hopefully you can use the same probes as the 732.
i have seen the iGrill at the store but i just cant make myself buy it. for some reason i just don't trust it. with the maverick i know i can get replacement probes for it.
