    How do ya'll keep your probe units out off the rain? Most say they are 'water resistant' but that doesn't mean waterproof.

    Put mine in a ziploc bag yesterday but a little water got in where the wires exited the bag. Could use an instant read but on a large cooker, opening the lid loses a lot of heat.

    Wip lok bags have never failed me...just slip the bag OVER the sending unit and allow the probes to dangle out the bottom...

    That's what I have. Will it hold up in a down pour?

    Wip loc? Very Happy

    I was laying mine down flat so it didn't get blown over. Maybe if I make a slit on the 'bottom' of the Wip loc so everything drains down.

    With the Maverick ET 73 , I just use the clip and mount the remote sensor to the side of the WSM and the probe wires in the cover vent holes, the reciever is under the canopy close to my chair so I can keep track of things. I always carry a spare 10 x 10 pop up canopy in case of rain to cover the WSM`s if need be. But I kep the zip lock bags handy just in case.

    I think we're big braining this too much...place the ZIP Lok bag over the top of the sending unit, run the leads out the bottom and crimp the seal shut except for where the leads poke out...you can stand the unit up through the bag and it'll stay dry.

    The ET 73 is waterproof. I use a ziplock bag just to be safe. Finney generally dosen't care for me being careless with the electronics. Bob...well he just won't tolerate it!!


    Good Q!

    I have used the zip- lock brand Tupperware cut a slit in the side for the leads

    Usually I could position the unit so I could see the display if needed

    Lately I have used zip-bags play around find what works for you

    Hi Eric!

    Lost one of the o rings in the Maverick so I was getting concerned about it being waterproof/water resistant.

    Was thinking about buying some of those Lexan waterproof boxes, but I bet a tupperware container would work as well.

    How you been doing??

    Thanks!!
