Maverick XR-50 Thermometer
Perfect for the Backyard BBQ Cook!
Our resident BBQ expert, Dave Parrish, teamed up with thermometer giant Maverick Industries to design, develop, and create this must-have thermometer. The XR-50 Thermometer is loaded with features – FOUR probes, hi/low alarms, large back-lit display, extended remote unit range, and more – at a price that won’t break the bank.
- Multiple probes – the XR-50 comes standard with 4 hybrid, waterproof probes that can be used in any combination to measure grill and/or food temperature and user can set HIGH or LOW alarms for each probe. Probes are rated 716F° (380C°)
- Easy to use – a single back-lit LCD screen provides information on all four probes including hi/low alarms that couldn’t be easier to set. And the base and remote units come with hooks, magnets and a kickstand – ready to go anywhere and everywhere!
- Reliable – with a 500 ft range, you don’t have to worry about getting too far away from the grill before losing signal to the remote unit. This includes signal through multiple walls inside, too!
- Award-winning – AmazingRibs.com gives the XR-50 “a well-deserved (Best Value) Platinum Medal”.
*We DO NOT ship the XR-50 thermometer outside of the U.S.
I like the 4 probes and have found them to work well. My only issue is that the rubber insert around the battery compartment fell out when I opened it to install the batteries, so I’m a little concerned how sealed up it will be when it gets wet.
Thanks for your purchase and for taking the time to leave a review! We're sorry to hear about the insert falling out.

The timer performed flawlessly in my first use. It is simple to use once you get the hang of the alarm features. Interestingly, and intuitively, you can set an alarm for a low temperature and a high temperature. I’ve never had a timer you can do this with, so convenient. I cooked Pork Butt to perfection setting my low at 225 degrees and high at 250 degrees. I highly recommend this product. I got the case too, and am really glad I did.
I have used so many probes over the years, but I must say, these are the best so far. I will state upfront that this was my first cook using them, but so far, so great. I cooked a 9 lb. Picnic Shoulder and it came out great. The device was easy to use and intuitive. Setting the alarm was a little different, so I had to read on that one, however, everything else was a breeze. I had the remote device around 100 ft. away from the transmitter, and inside my house, and it worked perfectly. I like the fact that the alarms are loud, and that you can simply press the on/off button on the remote piece to silence the alarm. I also loved that you can set the alarm to go off if the temperature goes over a certain number or under a certain number. This worked great on the smoker as I set the upper temperature to 250 and the low to 225, helping me keep the temp. perfect for the whole cook (which was 7-1/2 hours). Highly recommended.
This is my first grilling thermometer and I hit a homerun on my first purchase. The XR50 is easy to use and works great. The probes can handle the heat of a BGE, so no worries grilling steaks. I was able to keep my really low slow grilling temps on point for 5 hours, on my first attempt smoking ribs on my BGE. The ribs were a big hit with my 4th of July guests. They rocked! Thank you SNS Grills for providing this product it’s awesome.
Buying from SNS was easy and Flawless. Prompt, and everything showed up intact. The unit is fantastic. I love how doesn’t have pre set temps for meats. It gives you all the control to get the info you need while Smoking/Grilling. The Temps seem very accurate and it’s really easy to use. Having phones Bluetooth free to enjoy my tunes makes the XR superior to ones that use an app. Only complaint I can come up with is, it would be nice to have a case for storage. But, that is a super small issue.
