    Suggestions as to type and location will be appreciated. This is my first smoker. I smoked my first Boston Butt and chicken splits the other day and was happy with the results. All I have is a thermopen. Thanks.

    :yeahthat: X 3. Have a ET-732 & it's awesome ! :kewl:
  5. If something happens to my ET-732 I will replace it immediately! I use it for every smoke...
  6. If you want one on the cheaper side i have had good luck with my Taylor.

    I just ordered a Mav ET-733 and the taylor will  now be my backup.
  7. I recently bought one similar to this one.  I think it was also a Maverick but just a slightly newer version. I think it's the ET-85. I'm thinking about uping my money for a remote model down the line. Right now all I have is a Weber 18.5 inch and a old char-grill grill that looks like a Walmart Brand grill

    I just picked up an open-box Maverick ET-732 on fleabay for $42 with free shipping.
  9. I have cooked a boston butt twice using the Maverick ET-732 and both times worked perfectly for temp.
