New to Smoking - Need good Thermometer

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have an ECB with one of those Warm - Ideal - Hot Thermometers and need to upgrade to a Digital Thermometer.  Can some help me understand why 1 has a wire and the other in the same pair is wireless. Which Digital Thermometer is good?  Any help would be greatly appreciated. 


Thanks unsure.gif

Most people here, including me, will recommend the Maverick ET-732.


The one with the wires (smoker temp sensor & Meat temp probe) is the sending unit. The one without the wires is the receiver.

Like Bear said, the Maverick is a fine digital remote read.  If you want to replace the ECB analog in the dome, shop for a Tel-Tru commercial model on e-bay.  I got a 3" dial model for my WSM for around $25.  I went with a model that had a 2.5" stem which would also work for a ECB dome.  You will probably have to drill the hole bigger for a Tel-Tru to fit, and a step drill from Northern Tool or Harbor Freight is not too expensive and works great.  I've been using mine for 7 years now.  They really last (and I use the older Mavrick ET-73 and other remote read thermometers in addition to this one in the dome)
