    I received a gift today, it is an ET-72 Maverick remote thermometer. I have a fridge conversion that some of you may have watched me build. My internal temp is controlled by Auber Instruments and that thing is exceptionally accurate. If I dial 172 degrees it will keep it there for as long as I program it. My question is if I'm only looking to watch internal meat temp is this good enough unit. It says it will go 100'.

    Thanks

    In my opinion, it is a great unit for remote monitoring. If you can get 100' out of it, that's great but many here haven't been able to. There is a mod available for adding an antenna that increases the distance.

    Initial testing says it will not go 100'. I can get about 75' out of it as long as there is clear line of site. Can anyone tell me of the mod location?

    thank you. I'll open her up this weekend and see if I can do the mod on the 72.

    I guess I'm maybe lucky or not but I don't get much more than about 40 feet away from my smoker so my maverick still works but if I go into the ofice and then get away from a window the connection is gone and I have to go out and let it reset.
