    Bluetooth range is too short for me. Maverick is up to 300'. Next step for me is CyberQ or Stoker so I can monitor from anywhere.

    No. I stopped using any of them except my Thermapen. No wires for me.

    It looks like a slick device, but it appears to only have 1 probe so you can't monitor both meat temp and pit temp. 


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    @Mickey Yep, I wouldn't trust probe wires at 400* raised direct. ;)

  • I got all upset when my mavericks started acting funny, but @mickey encouraged me to go commando and I haven't looked back.

    I bought the iGrill twice when it went on sale and returned it both times. Bluetooth doesn't have the range I need. The maverick et-73 works fine for me. Might upgrade to the et-733 if mine dies, but I've been considering one of the wifi controllers too. The price is kinda steep though for one of those.

  • These devices will pay for a lot of meat.  i'll just keep doing things the old fashion way.  I like the technology but hate paying for it when there is a simpler way.

    I like to use a controller only below 250F but I cook everything 275F or higher so there's no need. The egg runs petty stable above that so there's no need to do overnight, either. Turbo. Myron.
