I'm looking to purchase a digital thermometer to mainly monitor the ambient temps in the lbge. I have a instant read, so the meat temps aren't as critical to me as having a better idea of my temp at the grate/dome. Based on the searches I've done on this site, obviously the general consensus is the maverick et-732, but based on reviews and the way my luck runs, I began to search out an alternate in the tw 8060. I really like the description & functionality of the dual channel. Remote is a non-factor, not that far to the bge anyway. I'm just having trouble pulling the trigger on the $129 price tag & the thought of having to replace their probes, however, I'm having an even harder time pulling the trigger on the Mav b/c of the reviews. The Mav may be a great unit, but based on my luck and the reviews I'm just a little skeptical. My thinking is if I buy the Mav and have to replace the probes in short order, I've got almost as much invested in it as I would the tw 8060...Can someone knock me off the fence one way or another??!!? Thanks in advance guys, I appreciate it!
