lol - I edited my original post to clear up the confusion.
unit should be here tomorrow in time for the weekend. I am planning on doing 10lbs of SS and some polish sausage or something. still have not decided yet. All i know is that I have 20lbs of meat thawing in the fridge.
I haven't smoked with mine yet, but it tests out great. Seems they fixed a lot of the problems with the old ET 73.
Watch out for that belt clip, though. The first time I bent over, my receiver and batteries spilled all over the place. I did manage to hang on to my beer so it wasn't on the floor with the receiver and the batteries. Fifty cent beer; $60 thermo unit? Hey, I do have my priorities!
