That said, the ET-73 is fine for smoking where temps rarely exceed its capabilities.

Good to know, I usually only use my ET-73 when smoking for grate temp. I use the food probe when doing other meats on my kettle, but have never used it for high heat cooking.

That said mine has lasted 3 years or more now. I just am careful with the probes and just use a scotch brite pad and soapy water to clean off the probes and immediately dry them.
