Best Thermometer

edited 4:40PM in EggHead Forum
Hello all,[p]I am relatively new to the BGE family. I have had my large for about 3 months now. Prior to the BGE I cooked on 2 Webber kettles and a Brinkman Gourmet water smoker, all of which I loved. I could definitely hold my own on those but now I have stepped up to the major leagues and as a result the former have become deck ornaments. I have always cooked by time, grill temp, and mostly feel. I’ve learned about the plateau when cooking butt’s from this site and it seems like monitoring the meat temp is the beat way to ensure perfection. I’d be interested in what you think the best wireless meat thermometer is and why it’s the best.


  • Whitetail,
    I've been real happy with the Maverick ET-73. I heard about it from others on this forum. It has two probes; one for the grid and the other for the meat. So far it has worked without problems.

  • Whitetail,
    I too am pretty new to the ways of all things Egg. I have also been using the Maverick ET-73 and found it to work great. I did a Pork Butt this week end and started it at 7:00 pm on Saturday and took it off at 1:00 pm on Sunday afternoon. Both the egg and the Maverick performed perfectly.

    I have an old Maverick that only does internal temps. It cost $80 and at that time was a steal. Always worked well on the Weber Genesis. It sounds like this new Maverick would be a real upgrade at half the price. I have just developed a split in my felt by the back hinges that would seem to be the perfect access for the cable. Any advice?
  • Thanks for the recommendations and especially the link. Made it real easy. I just ordered my Maverick. I am on vacation next week so I plan on doing my first low and slow. Can’t wait.
