Just did some research....I don't have any of these nor do I use anything other than a standard meat thermometer, but I was curious. I found several different tests/ratings and the Maverick 733, Oregon Scientific, and i-grill mini bluetooth all scored well in various tests. Consumer Reports likes the igrill and Oregon scientific behind the expensive William Senoma model. The Maverick gets better ratings in other venues.  I saw one rating where the igrill was number 1.  I'm guessing all of these work well and are probably a good choice depending on your particular needs. Each has some slightly different pros and cons along with different features......but I'm guessing you have already seen most of this yourself, ML. Let us know what you get.

and after further research........  I think I'll stick with my old fashoned meat thermometer that can be calibrated and I know will give very reliable results.  At some point I may buy a couple of the non-remote alarm models (for 10-15 dollars)  and set them both for 5 degrees under desired temp, but I don't know that I'm ready to rely on these  (or the remote) units. Even then, I'll probably actively check on things and go by instinct....I like to stay actively involved in the cooking process anyway; it's a good excuse to drink beer.

Even with the Mavericks I still feel compelled to check manually. There is no substitution for knowing how something should look and feel when its ready. What I like is the ability to get busy on another task and still not let something overcook. I would hate to ruin a complete smoker full because I decided to take a quick 3 hour power nap. :-)

Ditto on peeking and a nap....
