I also just purchaed the pitmaster IQ 110 controller. Going to try it out on some spared this weekend.

I already have Maverick ET-732. It works great.
what he said. I've been saying this for a while... but I don't understand buying a Thermapen. The RT600C is great... at almost 1/4 of the price of a Thermapen. I don't get to argue about which Thermapen color is the best or fastest, but I can live with that.

I have a Maverick ET-7 and an ET-73. The range on them did not impress initially, until I did the extended range mod by soldering in antennas for each unit. The range is now beautiful and I can monitor temps on my UDS or other grills anywhere in the house (2 storeys, brick walls). I am using my orginal probes which have seen about 4years of moderate use (about once a week).

I think many folks have screwed in an Old Smokey type thermometer into the lid or even dropped a turkey thermometer in through a top vent to get grate temps.
