Default Maverick ET-732

I purchased one of these a few months ago. I have used it numerous times with great results and no complaints. Fired up my WSM today, got temps stabilized and put my ribs on. About a half hour later I noticed my temps rising. Closed the vents a little. Kept rising. Closed a little more. You get the picture. Eventually with my vents almost completely closed it went up to 310 degress. So I quickly ran to Target and spent $5 on an oven thermometer. Now it sits next to the ribs reading 250 degrees while the probe underneath is up to 324 degrees. Guess the probe is shot.

I have a couple of Mav's too. Used one of them last weekend and the probe was reading pretty much exactly 20 degrees higher than actual (meat temp).

I ordered a Mav ET-7, the wireless remote thermo with two probes. Hoping for good things, the farkin replacement probes ain't cheap.

Analog thermo's with big dials are very nice in my opinion.
