I have had the opportunity to use it twice with my smoker now. One probe in the meat, and one for oven temperature. It works very well and even though I was never more than 30 or 40 ft away and indoors, I never had an issue with connectivity. It even allowed me to realize when I had run out of propane immediately while cooking by seeing the oven temp start to drop. Plus I know right when my meat has reached the program temperature and ready to remove from heat. I was going to purchase a smoker with a glass door at first, but this is much better and more reliable than sight checking.

These are very well made thermometer units. I had another before this but it was made of a cheaper plastic and just crapped out after a while. This one is covered in a rubbery material that make them less slippy-feeling. You can either hang the transmitter unit or use the fold out leg to set it on something. You can do the same with the receiver. It was easy to figure out how to set it up to follow the temps, and you can go with the pre-programmed temps or set it up to go off early if you want to bring the food in and rest it. We like to take our pork off early so it doesn’t dry out and taste like paper. The one I had before this was difficult to sync, and had to be re-synced before each use. This one is a lot easier, and I only had to do it once.

Well supported product. I bought this about 2 weeks ago. When I look at Amazon reviews, after I ascertain that a product is in the 4-5 star range, I look at the one star reviews, for both percentage of negative reviews… and, how the manufacturer or seller responds to these reviews. In this case, i-Tronics had responded response to every one of the negative reviews I read, was a reason to choose this product, because the vendor was watching the reviews, and responding with an offer to resolve what ever the issue was.
