I must be special. I have used a dual-probe E-73 for about four years. Range is fine at about 75 ft. Never had it freeze. It is within 5 degrees of my thermopen. You can tell if it is receiving because it has a little satellite icon that flashes when it is working. I take extreme care with the probes.

Thanks everyone. I ordered the ET-732. For me loss of signal was the deciding factor. It is not much good if it doesn't work. I will by trying it this weekend on couple butts and will update this thread for others who may have this decision in the future.

I really like the range of the ET-732. My probes are off by about 5 degress as well.

Sorry, I already ordered one but I did see a couple of other things on the site. What does one have to do to get the discount and free shipping?

I bought the 73 before I read any reviews because it was $28 shipped. I don't know if I would buy another or not. It does everything I need it to do but I'm worried about it losing signal and locking up.

I have been trying to decide wich way to go as well for use on my UDS. I was all set to order the 732, but I really want an iQ110 too! I just can't afford them both. So I'm thinking, even if you know what the temp of the pit is you still have to go tend it. The iQ110 automates the temp, so it seems like I would be spending the money twice. Are you able to put 2 meat probes?
I have heard some say that their UDS is so predictable that they "know" how to set the intakes and then cook by feel, so some might argue why use any thermometers ...
So given the cost difference between them ($60 for the 732 and $140 for the iQ110) which way would you guys go?
I am willing to pay more for the iQ110 but not after I buy a 732.

Default Probe therms; Maverick732

This is a very good beginning of remote therms., if used,wiped ,carefully re-packged in it's box and removing the batteries each time(i.e.-take care of it-pride) this unit will outlast anyother you can obtain for the price. You could get a Scientific type(high dollar unit) and maybe it would last longer, but I doubt it, my dealer is a fantastic businessman and holds his products high ,if they fail to do your bidding (breaks or is damaged) he'll work with you to right it, the care you take with your equipment determines the quality. This quality...

I had the same struggle and chose to go with the dual thermometer for now. Here are the reasons:

* I wanted a wireless thermometer for my meat temps also.
* I wanted to have something that I could use if I changed smokers or cooked with other people and their smoker.
* I don't have shelter from the rain where I cook. Although I can protect either unit with a ziplock bag or something, I was afraid that the blower motor would get wet.
* I am anal enough to where I probably wouldn't trust it (or at least not for awhile) and would be out there checking it anyway.
* I still have the option for a Stoker or Guru which is what I really want anyway. Feel free to send donations. Any amount will work as I am not proud.

Someone who has a 732 may know for sure but I don't see why you couldn't use two meat probes.
