Reverse sear with Meater +

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 


I've been using the maverick gear for a couple of years now, both the ET-732 and the ET-735 they do the job well but are fairly awkward to use and maintain, 1-4 probes, wires, batteries etc. I'd heard about the first version of the Meater and the issues some ppl were having with connection strength and basically waited for a better version. So now the Meater+ is out and I've been testing out... its very very good. 



  • no need for a stop watch while searing steaks
  • it has combined pit and internal temp readings, only one probe to clean
  • no more cable management
  • charges in between cooks
  • the base station allows connection to phone no matter where I am in the house/garage
  • time to finish feature is almost always spot on.
  • the App is simple and intuitive 


  • pricey no doubt
  • I tried the direct connection to the probe without the base station and yeah forget about using it with the akorn. You need the + model


The app also keeps the history of each cook and has a handy little graph showing the duration and temps. The dip at the 35min mark is when I lifted the lid to let the coals heat up for the sear and the second dip is when I took it off the BBQ to rest. This is when I ran slightly over my target temp, next time I'll start the sear a few minutes earlier. I really like having the history available to fine tune the next cook


Anyway hope this assists someone out there, certainly made me a better BBQ'er
