     Ok I bought a maverick 733 and have a couple questions.

    1. Do I put the probe into the meat as soon as I put it in the smoker or do I wait to put it in till it has smoked for several hours?

    2. Can I use one of the probes that came with the unit and a clip to monitor internal temp of the smoker or do I need to purchase another probe to do this?

    3. What is the best placement for the probe that I use to monitor internal temp of the smoker? Can the probe go under the meat or should it be over it so the meat does not drip on it?

    I do not have the Maverick but I do use another probe that I hand using Ceramic Magnets from Harbor Freight

    The corks are from when I laid it on the rack

    1. I wait an hour or two depending on what I'am smoking !

    2. One probe, I have the 732 & the blunt ended probe is for smoker temp.

    3. Just clip your probe to the grate close to the meat, not under it !
