    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.

    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.

    You might want to check out the items BBQ Bonanza has for sale on eBay. This is the guy that owns http://www.kck.com and is a good honest seller.

    He has a bunch of thermometers that are selling for a good price. 2 Thermopens are now at $72.00 http://stores.ebay.com/BBQ-STUFF-4-U
