ET-732

I've been thinking of getting this but I haven't yet. I read a lot of things that people love it as compared to the ET-73 but I have one simple question...do you need to drill holes in a WSM to set this up? I'm terrified of really messing up my smoker.

Re: ET-732

NOTE: The Maverick ET-732 has a larger probe and does NOT fit through the eyelet holes. I think the eyelet can be drilled out so the ET-732 probe will fit.

Re: ET-732

Pigs so you can actually drill them to make them fit the 732 probes?

Re: ET-732

Not sure. I have seen dudes that put a bigger probe in a eyelet, they just used a drill to make the hole larger to fit the probe. Never done it, so I'm not sure. I don't see a problem with drilling it out to make the probe fit right, but I might be wrong.

Re: ET-732

I've installed two sets of Guru Eyelet and I be leery of reaming them out much. Here is another option from CajunBandit, looks like they have 1/4" and 3/8" Sensor Grommets, but you would have to drill your WSM. I bought replacement doors from them and they were good to work with.
