High and Low Temp Alarms

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
For those of you with the Maverick ET-73 -- or any other thermometers that feature alarms -- I was wondering what you set the high and low alarm temps at.

Do you just go with 225-250? Do you go with a tighter range depending on how well the smoker can maintain temp? Do you use a different range depending on what you are smoking?

Just curious.

You need enough range so that a spike will be noticed, and when your choice of fuel starts to drop it will also be noticed. Hope this helps.

This thread is about the ET-73 and many here like it. (it is why I ended up with mine and I have been very happy) There are other choices out there but I don't know much about them.

I don't have high/low temp alarms, but i set my low alarm at 210 and keep an eye on things when it gets hot...
