    They both say they are the ET 73

    They both look the same. I just got my ET-73 (the $35.97 direct from Amazon) on Friday and it works great.

    Was a little worried about he range and figured I would have to mod it but worked fine through two walls of the house, no problems. I'd say get the cheaper of the two.

    *really wan't to get another one now. I'd say of you smoke more than two meats at a time, get two now :)

    From Saturday's smoke, two maple wrapped bacon tenderloins, two marinaded/rubbed loins, two corned beef:

    The one has a 3 after the 7.
    Just kidding.

    Looking at the picture, it seems the ET-7 has two meat probes with it, instead of a meat probe & a smoker/oven probe. But I would imagine you could use two meat probes with the ET-73 too.

    The probes and I imagine the firmware that runs them.
    One is a dual meat probe unit and the other is a meat probe and smoker temp unit so I imagine the alarms, interface etc. are a bit different in each. You can download the manuals or instructions of each and compare. I'm sure that would reveal all the differences.

    BTW: I always have trouble figuring out all the bells & whistles & alarms on things, so I only use mine for the temperatures.[​IMG]

  9. Yes you can! As a matter of fact, I run two at the same time. One for my smokehouse temps, and the other three for my meats. Maybe I got lucky, cause I don't get any cross interference with the two seperate units.
