My regular dial type just decided to break....time for a grill probe! What would you recommend? Something not too terribly the maverick oven probe decent for the money?

The Maverick 732 is a nice unit with wireless remote temperature reading.

I have used mine for 2 years with no problems....

I just upgraded my Maverick ET-85 to a wireless ET-732 and wow, love it. My girlfriend calls the wireless receiver the "meat pager".

Default Happy w/iGrill

I've only done 3 cooks (16, 12 & 11 hours) with it but I've been very happy with the iGrill. I use one probe for the ambient smoke box temperature and one as a meat probe. I'm particularly pleased with the alarm features and the ability to record and graph the temps from both probes for the entire cook (I' combining that data with my notes to keep my QLog).
