    I ordered my new Mav, ET 73 yesterday around 3, it came UPS today around 1 pm. Now thats fast! I will be attempting to use this thing in tomorrows smoke. 2 Butts and a fatty, and a Chuck roast. I only have 1 probe to stick into some meat, I think I'll stick it into the chuck roast till its done, then go for a Butt.

    Looking forward to having real time smoker temps from inside my house.

    The forcast for tomorrow is 5-10 mph winds and temps from 27 degrees to a balmy 45 in the afternoon.
    Had to build me a quick wind break, red neck shelter after work tonight. Couple sheets of OSB, some screws, and scrap pieces to cover the box when it is smoking good!

    Congrats! Are you sure they weren't selling them right around the corner. Man that was fast. Maybe someday I can get one, for now I guess the pyrex will have to do.

    The fatty will be done first, no doubt. After about 2.5 hours check their internal. 170 and done. We're talking like just as Michigan gets their third touchdown in the first half :{)

    hey Dude, Your hawkeyes are playin MY Western Mich Broncos. Last time they played it wasn't good for your team. WMU and the hawks are both doing poorly this year, lets hope for a good game to end the season.

    I am actually gonna put the butts in at 6, and then the chuck an hr later, and then about foil time, I am gonna put in the Fatty's.

    Rich, I hope you are right about the third touchdown![​IMG]

    seems to be working quite nicely, once I got rid of the lil clamp thingy on the smoker probe. went with da spud, and it seems to be doing nicely.
    I can actually walk into my back yard more than 100 ft and get a reading, but there are limits as to where I can go in my house!

    Mounted it right on my hickerbilly redneck wind break( the transmitter).

    Kinda nice out this morn 35 degrees and calm.
