Has anyone else had the probe for the smoker read constant random temps. Mine has started reading correct for a few minutes after turning on, but then will read all over the place from 80-380 degrees. The meat probe is always steady. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Might have to replace the probe. This happened to me.

If it does the same thing when the probes are reversed, then it will be a probe problem.
Put some shrink wrap over the probe/wire connection, next time. Radio Shack sells it.

I have read to never use the Maverick on a grill. Grills get too hot for the probe wires. Only use the Maverick on a smoker which has much lower temperatures than a grill.

Like Maniac said, make sure the plug is in all the way. Don't ask me how I know this Embarassed Embarassed . If that doesn't work you need a new probe. The Maverick probes are somewhat fragile. If you're easy on them they will last a while. I need a new probe as well and I'm going to try Jarheads suggestion about the shrinktubewrapstuff.

I had a problem with mine working correctly. I emailed them and after exchanging a few emails to identify the problem, they sent me a new receiver. I would go to their website and send them an email. Good luck.

Is there a better option than the Maverick?

I had to replace 1 probe within the first year of ownership, and after a little more than a year of usage the sending unit seems to have given up the ghost.

Something that lasts would be much preferred...

I read an older report from the America's Test Kitchen that had performed a test of thermometers like the Maverick. They found the probes on all the models to be deficient. Maverick makes a high heat replacement probe for the ET-7, ET-71, ET-72, ET-73, ET-77, ET-901 and ET-902. I think it would be your best bet.

I could be wrong but I think the new ET-732 comes equipped with the high heat probe.
