I got the ET-732 because it covers higher temperature 500+ vs. 400+.
I'll probably never own a Thermapen. I have a Taylor Weekend Warrior that gets to temp a couple seconds after a Thermapen and cost about $15.
Edit: I've put eyelets in my WSMs for running the probes but on my kettles I just put the meat probe under the lid and dangle the cooker probe in the lid vent.
I have one of those weekend warriors, it's nice for tri tip where I set an alarm and let it go. I have had it a couple years and works fine.
