Maverick ET-733 vs Mackerick ET-735 vs iGrill2

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone, 

 

I've read just about every review under the sun and I can't seem to make a decision between these three smokers.  I've seen lots of criticism of the bluetooth app associated with the ET-735 and none with the iGrill2.  On the flip side, the ET-733 has almost twice the range with it's receiver and is a lot less than the iGrill2.  

 

What experiences do all of you have?  Any suggestions?

Depends on what you want to do.  My primary goal was to smoke overnight and take the receiver with me to bed, so I needed range, and I needed an alarm.  The 733 fit the bill perfectly.  Bluetooth does not have range, period.

Seems like everyone has or wants the 733 for how it works and what it does.

 

The fact that the 735 can do 4 things at once is impressive, but do you need that much? Also if the app isn't that great, there is no other way to control it.

 

Just my thoughts

My igrill2 worked great when I first got it & has steadily been on the decline ! Can't be too far from it or I lose connection ! I'am thinking of trying a Mav 733 when I can !

I own all three of them and for my money the igrill is the way to go. I use the 733 so little when I go to grab it I always forget how to use it. If you have an iPhone it's a no brainier to buy an igrill.

Have u ever had connection issues with your igrill ? I can't be more than 50 ft away without losing connection on mine ! My Mav 732 I have no issues with !

I have an original igrill and have not had my connection issues. However my barn is well over 100 feet from my house and none of them will reach that far and then through the walls into the house. It's a long way so I don't mark any of them down for that.

Hmmm, my iGrill2 performs better than I could ask for. I can walk to the mailbox which is 150' away from where I smoke. The battery left few in the unit has become better with each app release. Probe accuracy is spot on.
