Ibe had both probes in crushed ice and water and this is what I'm getting

One probe is bad or off - switch ports and see if temps switch.

I just did the meat probe drops down to 34-36 when I plug it into the grate port. But when I plug it into the food port I can't get under 41.

Is the cup filled with ice then topped off with water, your not touching the sides with probe, stirring?

Ruger410 01-23-2014 06:11 PM

I was touching ice right in the middle of the cup floating In Water . I think the meat side port is bad or something

ButtBurner 01-23-2014 06:11 PM

try boiling water see if they are still different

sliding_billy 01-23-2014 07:06 PM

Yeah, I would try boiling and even some in between temps for comparison.

Could be a bad port, try leaving them plugged in and in the water for 5 minutes. Sometimes there is a response delay.

Then do the same in boiling water.

Are you using crushed ice because that could cause Variables as well.

I had a bad bbq probe, read good too 246 then it stopped. Would not go over 246.

I left both in the ice water for a while same thing I will try boiling water today. I would think both probes should at least be within a degree or 2

I've been fooling with this as I calibrate my Maverick temperature probes so I can take readings using an Arduino. I haven't gotten mine to read below 34F using ice cubes in an ice water bath. An insulated cup might help. I was using a pyrex sauce pan. Crushed ice would also help, but my attempts at such using a meat tenderizer on a cutting board did not go well. :roll: Use as much ice as possible with just enough water to cover. Stir vigorously.

If you have an ET-732 you can swap probes. Can't do that with the ET-73 as the probes are different.

Et-733 ?

dano 01-24-2014 04:14 PM

Switch ports or try boiling water.
that should get you pretty close to 212 degrees depending on elevation.

sportsnut 01-24-2014 07:54 PM

Well what was it ?
