About To Order ET-732 From A-MAZE-N...

  1. Would it be wise for me to order a spare set of replacement probes while I'm placing my order?

    And speaking of replacement probes, it look's like there are 3 versions available... Food, Smoker, and Hybrid. I can't seem to find a description of the Hybrid probe, can someone enlighten me?

    Thank's in advance

    Those hybrid probes can simply be used either for food or pit. ...which is nice .

    Also always heat shrink and seal where the probe meets the wire...keeps it from shorting out.

  4. Thank's for the quick reply FWI

    So, should I order 1 of each as back-up's (if I order 2 or more the price drops from $17 ea. down to $14 ea.)... or maybe just get 2 of the Hybrid's and save them for back-up's?  [​IMG]

    Boy i don't know.... I just know it's nice having a back up and that having access to a longer probe is also nice.
     
  6. Well, I went ahead and placed my (first) order through A-MAZE-N... the current special of 10% off plus free shipping made the deal too tempting to hold off any longer [​IMG]

    After a bit of strategic begging, I convinced my wife to allow me add a few other item's to the order, so aside from the ET-732 and (1) each of the replacement probe's, I also ordered up the "Package #3", an "18" tube", 10#'s of the Pitmaster's choice pellet's, and 5# of Pecan pellet's!

    You'll be happy when you need the replacement probes. I go through about a set a year right now. I always no mine are bad when the output is all "L's" on the screen.

    I didn't order an extra set of probes but now being so dependent on my ET 732 I think it's a wise idea, also agree with the heat shrink super easy to do and for .99 cheap protection.

    Just some heat shrink tubing that will fit that that wire well...  I had some yellow that worked. 

    Seal it right where the wire goes into the probe... Dab some rtv sealant on first helps also.

    Thanks for the info. I might give that a try.
     
  12. Another nice feature regarding the replacement probes for other's who may be interested:

    I did not fully realize at the time I placed the order, but the probe's that are included with the thermometer are only about 3' long. The replacement probe's are closer to 6' long (I just measured 1 of them @ 78" !), which is nice for allowing you to set up the transmitter safely away from the heat of the smoker or grill  [​IMG]

    I just picked up some shrink tubing and high temp silicon so I can get them sealed up today...
