Breaking in the new ET-73 tonight..

Well, Ive got a brisket in the smoker...temp holding well and the ET-73 seems to be operating well. The only problem is I was expecting a little more range out of it, but I never realized how far 100 feet was. I replaced the batteries that came with the unit and got a little more distance. The ones I put in were garbage too, so tommarrow Ill try some good ones...

Call Maverick, I take mine on the tractor with me when I'm cutting grass and I have no problems with them. Maybe there is something in your house interferring with them. I have the batteries in one that came with it too.

If your pit temp is ok, LEAVE IT ALONE!!! no peeking no nothing. They can fool you from time to time.Some times they seem to stall at a temp. Maintain a steady temp with your fire and let it go.The absolute most hard thing to learn about barbecue is to let things be and no peeking.

Keep a cool head, Maintain your fire, And most of all enjoy and have fun. If you maintain your fire with care every thing will be ok. Trust me. Your just going threw the new toy jitters. You didn't let it get to room temp before you put it on, Did you. Relax and enjoy the smoke.

190 is good to wrap. I don't wrap so I go 195-200. I like burnt ends and bark. Sounds like a hell of a good cook. :biggrin:
