Which thermo would you buy if yours was worn out or if you did not have one ? Thanks for answering .
I purchased the Maverick et73 a couple weeks ago. Have only used it twice but I like it.
I like many others like the Maverick ET73
Yep...et-73 would be my choice as well.
I ordered the ET 73 yesterday on Amazon.
Taylor at the Lowe's.
Now I have a maverick and others to the main thing is to test you thermometer to I do it alot just to make sure I really don't like over done meat.
The Thermopen is great. It is truely an instant read thermometer. However, If your lookin your not cookin so I like the ET 73.
I like my ET-73, especially for monitoring the grate temps. I did get a Thermapen for Christmas and boy is that a great tool to own. Not sure if I'll dirty another meat probe again. But we'll see.
thermopen! I've used the others and they're ok, but I like my thermopen.
depends on what you want it for......i don't think i've used my monitor therm more than 4x's. i have a really good themocoupler and a much cheaper talor that i will use to stik poultry but for everything else i usually just go by "touch" after a certain amount of time.........just me.
I would do both a ET-73 since you can monitor grate and meat temps remotely while smoking and a Thermapen so you can do instant checks around a product to make sure you are where you want to be. Also, thermapen is great for checking steaks, chicken, etc, quickly on a grill where you don't want to expose your ET-73 probes and cable to high radient heat when grilling.
