I had my 040 at CS for some repairs over the past couple of weeks and the good folks in Ponca City upgraded my controler with the 045 model, now I have probe otion (Thanks Bill!). What I'm wondering is if I should spring for the temp probe. I have and use a couple of Maverick ET732's to monitor both meat and oven temps. If memory serves the 045 controler doesn't automatically go into "hold" mode. Please correct me if I'm wrong. So I'm thinking about all I would gain is a more robust temp probe, integrated into the contoller.
Thanks for any input or thoughts.
