To pair the transmitter with your phone, you push the Bluetooth button on the back of the BBQ thermometer. After pairing your thermometer with your phone and downloading Maverick's app, you can choose from different types of meats and doneness levels. You can select preset temperatures of veal, lamb, pork, chicken, turkey, fish, deer, elk, moose and buffalo. You can also create custom temperatures and meat presets.

This BBQ thermometer has a wireless range of 160 feet, so you are free to move about. It is extremely convenient to have the freedom to socialize during a barbeque and not have to worry about always keeping an eye on the grill.

The ET-735 supports up to four probes, so you can monitor the temperature of multiple cuts of meat in addition to the grill or oven. Or if you are a grill master, you can juggle multiple grills using a single thermometer. The app and the transmitter let you flip through and see the temperatures of each individual probe.

Two probes are included with this unit, which are seven inches long and can read temperatures ranging from 32 to 572 degrees Fahrenheit. If you want to purchase an additional probe, you can expect to spend approximately $20 for each one. The probes for this thermometer are waterproof, so you can clean them under running water, which is much more convenient than just using a sponge or washcloth, especially when dealing with lots of sticky barbeque sauce.

Feature Set

Finding the app in the Apple App Store is slightly difficult. Maverick says to search "BBQ Redi-Chek" in the App Store. However, the app is technically called "Redi-Chek." Fortunately, pairing the BBQ thermometer with your phone is easy.

We like that the app has several adjustable settings. You can set an alarm for a high or low temperature. Or, if you'd rather cook by a timer, you scroll through the app and set it just as you set a timer through your smartphone's clock app. Maverick allows you to use a countdown format or count-up timer. You can also make several adjustments, like reconfiguring temperature between Celsius and Fahrenheit.

The transmitter itself is made of a thick, hard plastic, and it's powered by two AAA batteries. You'll need a tiny Phillips screwdriver to replace the batteries. The front of the transmitter has a large, glass-covered display. The screen is also backlit, making it easy to read temperatures, even in the dark. The transmitter is also water-resistant, so you can grill with ease knowing that if water or juices spill on your thermometer, it won't ruin it.

Help & Support

This digital BBQ thermometer comes with a 90-day warranty. Although this is shorter than other thermometers, Maverick constructs a solid thermometer. Fortunately, the company offers telephone and email support. It also has FAQs on its website. And anytime you need to access the instruction manual for this digital grill thermometer, you can do so within its app.


Overall, the Maverick ET-735 grill thermometer is a great tool. Its ability to juggle four probes will come in handy for families, and its free app allows you to select from all sorts of types of meats with an array of doneness levels.
