Multiple probes for the Maverick 732?

Santa is bringing a Maverick 732 thermometer for Christmas because I've been a good girl.  My question is if it comes with two probes, one for the meat and one for the grill temperature, what do I do if I am grilling 3 Boston butts?  Can you get extra probes?  Will the thermometer read multiple probes or do I have to buy multiple thermometers.  I don't think I have been that good...

    It just has one meat and one grill. You can't put extra probes on it.

    Use the one probe to get you into the ballpark area and then when you are getting near done, test the other two with the probe, thermapen or other instant read thermometer to see how they are coming along.

    You still have time to be VERY GOOD.  Then they can spring for a Stoker with multiple probe ports.

    You can however monitor two pieces of meat if you add one of these hybrid probes in place of the stock pit probe.

  • One pit, one food probe. Make sure you foil wrap the probe lead connection and do not position the pit probe over burning lump, make sure it has a shield, plate setter leg/drip pan etc...

    As noted - monitor one, probably the smallest to get you in the ball park, use your instant read to confirm

  • Thanks, everyone.  I ordered a cheaper version of the Thermapen that had pretty good reviews.  I will ask for a real Thermapen on my birthday.
