Need help for remote sensor

most seem to play to mixed reviews.

Or am I better just to get a taylor or something with a good probe and sit it on top of the smoker

I have a small cookshack 025 more than enough for me.

I have a Charmglow from Lowes or HD;Can't remember where I bought it. But, I have had it for about five years now and it works great. Mavarick is another good one.

I use a Polder with a corded probe that connects to a remote display. Works great. Has a timer and temperature alert.

I've been using the Maverick ET73 for about a year now. It works and transmits well, although I don't use the receiver that often. Like most gadgets coming from China, it's poorly crafted, not designed well, but does the job.

I am looking at a LEM but all of them play to mixed reviews.

Do you think it adds a lot so that things are NOT over done or dried out.

Done 1000's of smokings without them but with these sealed units I can see it might be a huge advantage.
