I have a 732 as well. I believe the probes are pretty much the same except for  their shape. I know the new probes on the 733 are identical in shape and size. Someone else probably knows for sure but I would think using the meat probe to measure the grate temp would certainly work. Ps. I like the 732 so well that I just bought another one. The new one is still in the box, as a back up. The 732 just appeals to me more than the new 733.

Agreed.  i just ordered another chamber probe from Amazon.  

 

I spatchcocked a 12 lb turkey and cooked it at 325 (according to my bbq probe, disguised as a food probe) and it took 2 hrs to get the breast to 165. It was my first spatchcocked turkey and i thought it would take about an hour or so. That caused me to think the food probe was reading the chamber a little low.  Oh well, if that's the biggest problem I have... LOL

You are corrrect Ken, all Maverick ET-732 and ET-733 probes are interchangeable. Also it doesnt matter what probes you use for the meat or the pit. I have even stuck that little snubby pit probe into meat before. I'm guessing when the stock is gone, all the probes will be the hybrids. I personally like the curved meat probes, but most don't.

Atleast you are man enough to admit you have a snubby little probe. LOL---Ken

The turkey is awesome. We are traveling with it Wednesday and had to smoke it yesterday.  If you don't have to make a presentation with your gobbler in front of your guest, I highly recommend spatchcocking your turkey. My 12 lb bird was to temp in 2 hours and cooked evenly because the whole turkey lays flat on the grate.

The only thing you can't do is use one new hybrid probe with an old standard probe.

All new hybrids or all old standard probes.

 

You totally lost me ckreef! You can use them interchaneably;  i.e. you can use an old standrard curved or snubby probe in the meat and a hybrid probe for the pit temp, or vive versa. It doesn't matter.

Somewhere I read you could not mix the new with the old. I have both versions at home and will run the experiment as soon as I get a chance.

The input jacks are identical on all three:  the original curved food probe,  the original snubby pit probe and the new hybrid probes. The ONLY difference in all three is the shape of the probe itself. I have interchanged them several time on my ET-732's.

I have a maverick et-732 and my bbq probe is out.  So, I stuck my food probe through a spud and used it as the bbq probe.  It gauged a temperature but I just don't know how accurate it is. Has anyone else tried this? What were the results? What was your method?

I use my 732 and 733 probes for grill temp every cook and have done so for 2 years

I've had a Mav ET-73 for a least 12/13 yrs and the only trouble it ever gave me was a probe wore out and wouldn't give me any temp.  That's NOT a complaint because everything wears out eventually especially in heat.  Anyway, replacement through the www was a snap and the thermometer is top notch.

      I just got an early xmas gift, a Maverick et-733 dual probe thermometer. I'm psyched and can't wait to use it. Up until now I've used a cheapo $5 digital instant read probe that I got at Wal-mart. We are having a pot luck at the office this week and I'm going to smoke a Boston butt for the event. Currently the temperature in central Indiana is hovering around 20 degrees. I have a question concerning the maverick transmitter and very low outdoor temps: Will the cold weather have a negative effect on it or cause any damage? I'm probably being overly cautious but I'm not wanting to ruin a brand new toy. Thanks for reading and I appreciate any input you have on this.

      When I got my Akorn and joined this site in May I thought yall were crazy for having dual probe thermometers.  My, how we evolve so quickly.  I just bought a Maverick et-732 and am planning on smoking a pork butt tomorrow, care-free. Plan on letting the IT get just over 200, then wrapping in foil and a towel for an hour (if there's a better method, please share.)
       
      My question is, before I do this, should I test the Maverick?  Is there a calibration that needs to be done?
       
      When I do it, should I stick the meat probe through the top, through the length side, or through the width of it?  How far from the bone should I be?
       
      Just want to make sure I get this done right.  Couldn't find quite the answers I was looking for using the search function.
       
      Thanks in advance!

      I just received my igrills mini a month ago followed a week later with the igrill2, I was real happy with it till last week when I discovered a problem, I was cooking a meatloaf and the igrills was reading 375 grill temp. The Jo's therm was only reading 250ish and in past experiences the dome and the maverick were pretty close to each other. After an hour I checked the meatloaf and it wasn't close to being done which is normally is on past cooks. The Jo temp hasn't changed so I hooked up my maverick and sure enough it was showing about 250° as well. Thinking I might have a bad probe I ordered another probe from igrill.
      Today it arrived and I figured I would hook them all up and see differences
      this is how the probes were set up

      Some reading. Sorry about glare

      Meter readings
      This was what it read 1 hour after I lit the fire.
      I put the chicken on and watching the temps and now the two igrill probes are within 2 degrees of each other but the maverick is 10° lower. The Jo's temp is reading 40° lower now, its been maybe 15 minutes since I put food on
      I now have four temperatures and not sure which one to believe
