Maverick ET-73 or Maverick ET-72

Maverick ET-73 or Maverick ET-72?


I was surfing around looking for information on both of these and I can't see much of a difference between the two.

Can anyone here please offer their opinions or experiences?

Diva,

Never owned either one, all I know is that the only one anyone ever talks about and recommends, not only on this board but many others, is the ET-73, so I have to assume that for whatever reason that is the preferred unit.

Diva,
The ET-72 only monitors the meat, but the ET-73 monitors both the meat and the pit temp. I have had two of them for many years and they've both worked perfectly and still calibrate to +/- 2* of 212* when placed in boiling water. They are great units and I would highly recommend them. Matter of fact, I'm more than likely going to buy another one since I've run into needing three on a number of occassions.

You can usually get them from Amazon for $49.99 w/free s&h, if they're not available there are other places that sell them cheaper, but add shipping and generally they come out to be about the same price.

The 73 is the one you want. Meat and Pit temps with both high and low alarms on pit temp.
