Man I'm loving this Maverick ET-73 Wireless Remote Smoker Thermometer. I put two Boston butts on at 9:00 p.m. and am in the house watching my meat and egg temperatures. The internal temp of the butt is 65* as I write and the cooker temp at the grate level is 235*. It has an alarm to let me know if the cooking temperature gets too high or low, that I haven't learned to set yet, but I'll place it by my bed tonight, set the alarm about every 3 or 4 hours and look at the remote. This thing is a lazy-man's dream! P.S. I don't own any stock in the company.
