All of a sudden a meat probe of one of my Maverick 73s went bad. No matter the actual temp it always reads in the 230s. Has anybody experience this? Probes are always clean.
My probes are about 18 months old--still working good.I had a Taylor probe go bad after a coupla weeks. Took it back and Target allowed an exchange. I had washed it off in the sink and I hear water is bad for them so it was probably my mistake. Not sure 'why' washing them is bad...I wash instant reads off at work all the time with no problems.I recently got the new Maverick 732 and have switched to using alcohol on the probe. Any enlightened smokers out there with input on this??
3 pans of liquid?I'm wondering if it was all of the moisture in my smoker. I had three pans of liquid running in each. There was so much moisture that I had to remove the screen on the vents because they were getting clogged. As I was working in the smoker I had condensation (from the ceiling) just dripping all over my hands and arms. I guess maybe it got into the contacts because even today they don't work.
