Maverick XR-50 Thermometer
A Must-Have Thermometer
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 Internationally
I live in South Africa and ordered a unit when they were first introduced in July 2018. I have 2 XR50 units and my units are used a minimum of 4 days a week every week. I have not owned any other thermometer of this type so I can not make any comparisons with other brands but I can say the XR50 has not let me down. With another cooker soon to be completed I'll be needing another monitor and I know I'll be buying another XR50.
Great product - could be greater
I have one at my main home and bought another for my vacation home. As far as wireless thermometers go, it's great - but could be greater. Some features I'd like to see in future versions: The ability to set alarm temperatures and turn them on/off from the remote, a cell phone app or website The ability to run airflow/temp control devices Web connectivity to monitor long cooks and keep a record of them with a cell phone app and website These features to be available through firmware updates or trade in so I don't need to buy new units to get them
Better description needed
I've used a ET732 for years, so I was excited to see a 4 channel unit offered. However, all 4 channels aren't the same. 1 & 2 are for grill temp only with a lower limit of 221 degrees. All alarm adjustments have to be made at the transmitter outside instead of the receiver inside. A decent device, but not as convenient to use as its 2 channel predecessors. The alarm beeper could be louder, and as for the extended range I can't tell much difference.
This is my second try. My first was an iGrill. Frustration with its inability to maintain a Bluetooth signal when distance from grill never exceeded 40-50 feet led me to have a wandering eye,,, I purchased the XR-50 on sale around Christmas of ??18 and have used it many many times indoors and out. I have a WSM 18 and this worjs like a charm. Easy to program, signal strength is steady and dependable. I don??t need charts and graphs. Just temp. This has been the answer for me.
Great customer service!
Love using this thermometer! Works great and as advertised. Purchased mine just before Thanksgiving and used for my first ever smoked turkey. It helped turn out an amazing turkey. After only a couple uses the port on the main head broke internally and I could not plug in one of the probes. Having 3 extra probes was very useful and I was still doing a lot BBQ so I did not have a problem checking multiple temps. I had purchased through Amazon and after a few months I had down my cooking so I reached out through amazon asking how to go about a warranty claim. His was late afternoon on a Sunday. I received a call Monday am but missed and I had a voice all asking me to call. I was busy and did not call right away. I believe it Wednesday had I received a replacement in the mail and I had not even called back yet. There was return label in envelope. This is great service in my opinion. Above and beyond. New works great. If quality is great. I believe fluke thing that broke. Stuff happens but a company truly shows there value on they act regarding situations like this. I live on Washington State and have accidentally left mine outside in the rain and no problems. Screen easy to read as always and very easy to program. Temps always seem very accurate. Love using.
