  1. Hey all!

    Up at four, butt's in the smoker, drinkin' some coffee and watchin' the temp via the ET-73 in the kitchen. What a great little device! I do feel a tiny bit guilty cause I'm not "payin' my dues" camped out in the backyard getting eaten alive by mosquitoes.

    Oh and you guys were right. Guage on the door is off by 40-50 degrees. wonder my ribs took so long before.

    You got to love that Et-73, it's got to be the best investment I've made in a long time.
    Good luck with your smoke and let us know how it comes out.

    Good idea not to trust the factory therm, they are usually off the mark. I don't consider mosquito bites as part of the regular ritual. What ever it takes to make you and yours happy. It's all good my friend.
