I would think the biggest issue when it comes to outside temperature would be battery life. Most electronic components these days can operate quite well in temperature extremes. The operational environment range is usually listed somewhere near the back of the manual.

Now if I was wanting to cook outside in sub-freezing temps I would make sure the battery(ies) were fresh.

Check this thread out for discussion on how the Maverick will perform in the cold:

I just looked at the manual and the operational temperature ranges are not there.

I used mine last weekend to cook a whole hog in 20 degree weather and it worked great

I don't think colours based on an element found in the periodic table adds anything to speed or accuracy. Now colours based on the colour spectrum have to be superfast - dare I say speed of light fast.

I've had a white one for about 8 months now.

The 3' pit probe that came with it went bad after about 10 cooks. I have a probe grommet mod in my WSM, never got it wet and never let grease drip on it. I got a 6' replacement probe.

I don't use my ET-732 unless I need the meat probe. I find it easier, and works just as well to use a standard, analog thermometer in my probe grommet.

To answer some of the above:

It will not monitor more than 1 pit at a time

They work fine in the cold

And yes, the probes are delicate and mine go out all the time. 3rd set in 2 years

Still a good unit for the money though. Probably won't buy another one but I've had mavs for 7-8 years and they have always been ok for the money. None have lasted a full year though
