    I am looking at purchasing the Taylor 522 Connoisseur Digital Dual Probe Thermometer and Timer  for my new Landman Big Block. Does anyone have any experiance with this termometer? Good/Bad?  .

    I haven't used the Taylor, but I just got a Redi-Check ET73 after reading some recommendations for it. I like it, and the remote transmitter is pretty handy.

    Welcome to the SMF. Give us a little introduction about yourself and your smoking/grilling gear. I moved your thread to roll call, so that others can welcome you to the forum. It's all good my friend.

    Welcome aboard Txcarguy.  I think you'll like it here.  I don't have your thermometer so I can't help you there.

    I haven't tried the taylor yet, but have tried many other brands (polder, CDN, cheapo's) and actually like the Maveric dual probe or the cheapos the best.

    First off - welcome to SMF. Lots of good info here

    I have the ET73 and have been very pleased with it - in my situation the range is good and the batteries last forever

    I love my Maverick. Got mine at an Omaha Steak brick-n-mortar store on sale for $20.  I will *never* buy anything without a remote ever again. WOW is that convenient!!

  15. I have the Maverick E-73 also and I love. I 1st tried the cheapo version at Lowe's and I didn't care for it much. Bought mine at Amazon for $36.
  16. I also have an ET 73 that I have used three times now.  Twice in my MES and once in a ProQ charcoal smoker.  It has worked quite well for me.

    I use thermometers on everything i cook except my ribs. and i prefer to use standard probe type. I do however calibrate them everytime I cook.

    I use thermometers for everything, insert at the beginning (I don't wanna open the door of my smoker if I can help it) and calibrate before I use it each and every time.

    I find my guests like it when I do it even for grilling steaks. PERFECT medium rare, every time.
  20. what do you mean by calibrate your thermometer every time??
