    Well a while ago I upgraded from my Crapberry cell phone to an iPhone. In the process I ended up with a $20 credit at Verizon. Of course I could only use it there. I was perusing the accessories that they offered and I ran across the iGrill bluetooth, dual probe thermometer. I had read the reviews here and online so I thought what the heck and ordered it up. Two days later and the Fed-X guy is ringing the doorbell. So far I really like it. I haven't used it to cook with yet, but both probes read identical when I plugged them in. They also are right on in boiling water and ice water!!! Can't wait to use it!

    Let me know about battery life....
  3. Me want, you ship too me!?

    I bought the cheaper Maverick wireless, it works, but not consistently, I find myself just using my cheap Taylor one probe and check about once an hour for temps...Frank holds the temp religiously, so I've not needed to babysit him too often. I thinking with my new one (although, it'll be temp controlled by the PID?)...decisions, decisions, decisions...

    All I can say so far about it is so far it more accurate than all the other digital therms I have purchased. The free app has some cool features like graphing and naming custom temp alarms and timers. I couldn't pass it up $79.00 through Verizon, less the $20 credit I had, $59 same price as I paid for my Mav ET732 that is okay at best. I hope the 200' range works, that'll be the big tester for me.

    I will. One of the displays on the phone shows you the battery life of the remote.

    Let us know about the range too! I've had my eye on this for awhile. If the wireless range is good, I may just have to pull the trigger!

    I'll do a more extensive review and write up on it this weekend after I get to test it on an actual smoke.
  8. [​IMG]  i'm in. can't wait to see your review. i may have to have one if it works well.

    happy smoken.

  9. i just did an ebay search on it. 61.99 shipping included. that wouldn't do you any good with your coupon. but it will help others.

    i sure do like ebay and amazon.

    happy smoken.

    I use amazon and ebay all the time, and I found that price you mentioned to be the best. So if it hadn't been for the $20 credit I had, I would have gone that route.

    The curiosity got the better of me so i turned on the iGrill and set it up in the Mini-WSM to see how far I could travel from it. Outside I could walk a good 300+ feet from it and never lost the signal. In the house I tested the main areas that I normally have one of my receivers. No issues, in fact quite often the Maveric cuts outs out in all those places. I had to go to the opposite side of the house into the back bedrooms bathroom to loose the signal. At that point I was multiple walls and about 200' away. So I have to say that for me this is going to work out great! When it did loose the connection I walked back and the connection re-connected automatically without having to power anything on and off. So far no complaints!!!

    I have also been thinking about buying the iGrill. I believe it has dual probe support which would be nice, one for the meat and one for the smoker temp. My old thermometer just died on my last smoke.

    I'm curious about the probes and how they will hold up... not having to good of luck with my Mav. probes (73 or 732)...

    I haven't had any problems with my ET732's probes. The older units I did. I run mine through dedicated holes I have drilled or through the vent opening on the top of the GOSM. In the Mini-WSM I have dedicated holes for the probe to stick in.

    The quality of these cables appear to be a bit better, crimps look better. Wire size is about the same.  Time will tell
    Yes these are a dual probe unit. They do make a single probe so make sure and read the fine print on what's in the box. The single sells for around $59.00 +/-.

    I will never buy another single probe unit again. I don't think I'll need another unit unless the Maverics die, for me 5 probes should be enough!

    I love the 732,however the I grill would be nice if I could access my temps from anywhere like the store, sometimes I go bumming around while I'm making jerky or pp.....
    I have been using my security setup just put the receiver in front of a camera ...
  20. They're "Out Of Stock" in both the black and white...I was ready to pull the trigger!
