Grilling and barbecuing takes a lot of attention, but you don’t have to stand guard by your grill while you cook anymore! The Wireless Barbecue Meat Thermometer lets you socialize with your guests and still know what's going on with your food. With a range of up to 100 feet, this great cooking accessory comes with a wireless probe for your food and digital gauge that has a digital LCD screen that tells you the temperature and alerts you when your food is ready. Comes with different entree programs and a variety of ''doneness'' audio alerts.

On my second unit and third probe.You put the probe in the meat and it does not register heat. Bass Pro replaced first one. same problem. Oregon Scientific instructs you to reset the unit. this takes 20 minutes so steaks are already done. It is only useful if you test it every time you use it. I leave the batteries out of it so I don't have to go thru the whole thing. When it works it is handy.

Purchased 2 of these last year at thanksgiving. One lasted about 6 monthts. The other still works when it wants to, but will lose signal (out of range) every 10-20 minutes when less than 20 feet from grill. Limited to 199 degrees, not cool when you are smoking a brisket. to 205. I don't feel this product is near the quality I had hoped it to be.

I owned one very similar to this unit and quickly learned that the temperature sensors are very fragile. Don't submerge, lay on grill, or drop.
I tested the transmitting range for ease of mind and was impressed. My older unit would enable you to set the temperature while this one allows one to set the "doneness". I preferred the manually setting as I undercook, then let the meat set off the grill to finish cooking.
Overall, good product. Read the directions and

I'm learning to grill meat and wanted a BBQ thermometer to let me know when what I was cooking was at the proper doneness. I bought this unit and used it on a pork roast and it came out perfect. The next time I tried to use it was on a tri-tip and nothing I did would get the unit to read the temperature in the tri-tip. So used twice, worked once. When I tried the support website listed in the instructions, it "can't be found"! Not what I would call a quality item. I won't buy Oregon Scientific again.

It will keep either temperature but only one at a time. If you have the probe in your meat or other food, it will show you that temperature. If you just put the probe inside the smoker, it will give you that temperature.
