Default Remote Temp Unit w/4+ probes

Hi All,

Here is what I am looking for and have not been able to find anything yet. I am looking at making something if need be.

I would like a way to monitor the temp of 4 different meats/pits remotely.

The closest I can get is with a Maverick ET-73, but that only has 2 probes.

Looking for something with at least 4 probes, and that could be used within 100' or so.

I have looked and have not found anything that meets the needs.

Anyone know of something that would fit the bill?

Thanks

Pete

The problem with the ET-73s is that I think they will conflict with each other. Plus I am looking for something with a little more range.

No they won't. I have two of them and have no issues.

That was my thought exactly, especially the range limitation.

I have used two ET-73's with no interference, but the range leaves a LOT to be desired.

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.

I wish the range was better on the maverick. Definitely not as advertised. Works pretty good otherwise. Vince

I have been very disappointed in the performance of my NuTemp as far as the range is concerned. I found the Maverick to be better.
