+1

I own 2 - Mavericks. An ET-73 (older model) and a ET-732
I also own a Thermapen
Because I am somewhat anal - I also own several Taylor oven thermos (CHEAP - LIKE 3.99 EACH) that sit on the grate in my smoker ( to monitor temp zones across the smoker)

The Maverick's are great for all night cooks and i want to get some sleep, as they have dual probes and set points & alarms.

The Thermapen is best at what is is designed for: Accurate, superfast temp checks.
