I also have an ET 732 and love it, use it on the grill, in the smoker and in the house oven. I think you'll find a lot of happy ET 732 owners here and for the most part, like me, probably wouldn't find enough advantages to spend the money to upgrade if the ones we have are working well. I bought mine right when the ET 733 came out and I work in a technology world, so I felt much more comfortable buying the technology that was more "proven", plus it saved me a few dollars to spend on beverages while I watch the smoke. My guess is either will work well, you just need to decide if the upgrades are worth the difference in cost to you.
i have the et-733 and i love it,i move around my property and in my house,upstairs and in my man cave and i never lose a signal,my buddy has the et-732 and it works equally as well,the 733 comes with the hybrid probes and you can monitor 1 meat and 1 grill temp or 2 meats or 2 grill temps a decent backlight on the 733 and a bunch of preset meat temps ,bigger sreen on the 733 also and i think the range is a little better although i have never tested both the 732 & 733 for range,but love my 733,hope this helps,good luck
I have several of the 732s and recently brought a 733. To be honest I find the 733 very fiddly to program and tend to stick to using the 732s. The dual purpose probes on the 733 could be an advantage if you need to keep changing probe types, however as I usually use one for the grill temp and one for the meat it isn't really giving me anything more than the 732. If I need to monitor more than one piece of meat I simply use a second 732.
My initial impressions of the 733 are that money would be better spent towards buying 2 x 732s rather than just 1 x 733. I will persevere with the 733 however to see if it grows on me.
p.s. if you smoke a lot of Elk then the 733 does have a specific setting for it . We dont get to eat a lot of Elk here in the UK though.
