    are these thermometers worth buying, Redi-Check ET-73 Remote Thermometer or is there a better thermometer out there that has two probes, I see the a few people are having problems with the mavericks and am not sure if these are the same or different.

    well I googled and now realize they are one in the same, so in light of the problems some peeps been having is it worth getting one?

    that's not the et-73. this is the 73

    alot of people love them as they have 2 probes (one for the meat, and one to monitor the temps inside the smoker). i actually just bought one myself and got it yesterday. i played around with it a little bit to make sure it works, and will be using it this weekend.

    I just got mine last Saturday. I really like it. The one thing I don't like is the probe cables are kind of short. I see they sell 6-foot cabled food probes. I suppose one could be used as a smoker temp probe just placed through a block of wood or a potato.

    It's nice not to have to hover over the smoker to monitor the temps.

    I have used the crap out of my ET-73, and I have 5-6 other models too. I think I like the Redi-check the best. It does have short leads, but the other maverick leads fit it too.
