Setting up my Traeger Texas Grill with the Cold Smoker Accessory

Hello from sunny Washington State.

I have just bought a used Traeger Texas Grill and have added the cold smoker accessory. The whole thing went together pretty easily but I worry a little about the accuracy of the analog thermometer.

I know there is a whole list of digital ones that can be purchased. Which ones are best? Do they replace the analog one or do you drill a new hole in the griller to feed the probe through?

Looking forward to getting started with this whole smoking thing. My outdoor kitchen already includes a Blue Ember electronic BBQ, a six-burner Viking cooktop converted to propane and a charcoal rotisserie that can handle over 100 lbs. Thx.

I have two Maverick ET-732 wireless setups with dual probes.   Totally awesome devices.

Captain,

I rely on a maverick et732 to monitor my traeger temp AND meat temp. The sensor clips at the grate where the meat is so you have a better idea of true cooking temp.  The analog lid gauge is off on most of them and doesn't give an accurate grate temp anyway due to the location.  That maverick will come in as a real handy cooking tool.  Al the best to you.

Thanks, Gentlemen, I have been looking at the ET 732 ( and the new ET 733) and have been weighing the pros and cons as commented by people. I agree with you, Maverick would seem the way for me to go.

Cheers,

Bruce
