Smoking meat and fish properly can take days. So, rather than going out to the smoker to check the temperature time and time again, simply install a RediChek Remote Wireless Smoker Thermometer and rest at ease. This handy thermometer monitors smoker air temperature and food temperature from up to 100 feet away. And, if the temperature drops too low or jumps too high, the RediChek alarm goes off, so there are no spoiled batches-just certainty that every batch of smoked salmon is perfection. The RediChek can also be used with an oven or grill for peace of mind while baking, barbecuing, and broiling and for fewer trips to the kitchen. Best of all, the RediChek is wireless, so installation is a snap. Your purchase includes four AAA batteries for out-of-box use.

A couple of annoyances:
- Dropped connection advisory/display. The remote display sometimes stays on the same temp for a while and this is b/c it loses connectivity with the thermometer on the BBQ. It would be preferable to have immediate feedback stating the 2 units are not communicating and the temp is not accurate. On multiple occasions I have moved the remote and all of a sudden the temperature jumps 10+ degrees, all because the unit was not properly communicating.
- The BBQ Gauge ON/OFF Switch location. This is just a knucklehead design annoyance. For some reason, they decided to put the ON/OFF switch underneath the battery cover. So every time you want to turn the unit on/off, you have to pull out a screw driver, penny, or sharp fingernail and turn the screw to open/close the battery door. Silly
This unit is a good option to last you the next year or so until the Bluetooth, wifi enabled thermometers come down in price. Once that happens, this sucker will be obsolete. Until then, this unit meets the basic need.
You are able to set up temp warnings so if the smoker goes above a certain temp it will start beeping and you know to go check on the smoker . I use this mainly when I'm cold smoking cheese or hot smoking ribs as it lets me step away from the smoking and do other things while not constantly going to check the temp on the smoker.
There are a few drawbacks to this device I would like to point out:
1. to turn the main unit on you must take off the back battery cover to flip the on switch
2. sometimes the receiver and main unit stop talking to each other and you have to turn both units off and then back on for them to sync up again. This has only happened a few times to me, but more than enough to become annoying.
If you can live wit these minor annoyances you will find a solid product that will hopefully help you our when making some bbq.
I was impressed that the 2 probes in the ambient air would read the same temperature. My last remote thermometer (another brand) read about 7 degrees off!!
The problem is that I've used it a lot for 2 months, but now the unit that has the probes plugged in won't turn on. I tried new batteries, and it simply is dead. I am too late to return it to Amazon. I will try to return it to Maverick now. I'd love a replacement just for the one unit, because it really did work well for those 2 months.
Update: I added a star. I sent my Transmitter back to Maverick, and within 8 days I had a replacement at my house. I mailed it the slowest possible way back to Maverick because it was on my dime. They immediately exchanged it and mailed back the replacement. Yes, I'm still disappointed that it stopped working, but I'm incredibly impressed with the speed at which they sent a replacement.
Update #2: I took back a star. I've had this unit for a year. I had to get the transmitter replaced, and now the probes are reading approximately 12 degrees different. The "smoker" probe is still measuring accurately, but the "Food" probe is about 12-13 degrees lower than it should be. I had 3 other thermometers to confirm that the "Smoker" probe was the only one still working. I've decided to give up on this unit, and I purchased another brand. If 12 degrees is the best I can get with this, I won't even bother with a temperature probe!
Only draw backs is the range gets cut in half by walls/doors when I go inside to escape the Florida heat.
I have also had trouble setting up the temperature hi/low alerts, but easily fixed by paying attention.
