I just bought a stoker and i can say it worth every penny. I was very close to getting an et-73 because my old home depot remote thermometer was going out. I put the home depot vs the stoker and the home depot thermometer was close to 15degrees off the stoker, and almost 2 minutes slower at reporting temps. All this is assuming the stoker was calibrated correctly, but i picked it up in person and shot the **** with john for about 25 minutes. John is actually a stand up guy. He is basically a one man shop. No his customer service isnt the same as walking into best buy(but who likes being hounded anyways), but he takes care of the customer and at the end of the day that is all the matters.
Be on the look out shortly for a detailed write up of the stoker. I love doing reviews.
