Rated 4.73 out of 5 based on 15 customer ratings
(15 customer reviews)


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.
  • 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!
  • gives the XR-50 “a well-deserved (Best Value) Platinum Medal”.

When it comes to a “leave-in” digital thermometer there are five things everyone wants:

Accuracy, simplicity, flexibility, reliability, and affordability.

Accuracy:  All thermometers have a range in which they are most accurate.  Period.  Our probes have been designed and third-party tested to be extremely accurate in the ranges most critical to the outdoor cook…. 32 F to 250 F.  This range covers both the pit temperatures and meat temperatures you care about the most.

Simplicity:  After a few minutes you’ll understand how to program every function of our thermometer.  We’ve designed it so that you get all the info you need, when you need it, and setting alarms is a snap.

Flexibility:  Most of the commonly used thermometers have just two probes.  The XR-50 doesn’t just have 4 probes, but they are all interchangeable and can read grill or meat temperatures as needed.  And with 4-foot long probe wires, you have more flexibility to run your wires and place your base unit wherever you may want.

Reliability:  With 500 ft range line of sight the XR-50 breaks records.  What’s more, that range translates to usable connectivity in your home.  You’ll be able to monitor your temperatures from rooms in your house that would otherwise be impossible with all the 150 to 300 ft range thermometers on the market.  With waterproof probes you don’t have to worry about damaging the probes during cleaning – the #1 reason probes fail.  Aside from being waterproof our probes are very rugged.  They can read temperatures from 32 F to 572 F and the probe wires are rated in temps up to 716 F.

Affordability:  To get the above features in other thermometers, you’re likely going to spend a lot of money.  We’ve incorporated your must-have features into a quality made product at a price point so you don’t have to wait for a special occasion to get a “fancy” thermometer.

What you won’t find with this thermometer:

  • A screen that washes out in the sunlight
  • Any need to worry that your “app” is up to date
  • Probe wires that are too short (3 ft just isn’t enough!)
  • Alarms that are hard to program
  • Instructions that are hard to understand

Included in the box:

Receiver unit – smaller unit
Transmitter unit – larger unit
2 detachable stainless steel 6” long food probes
2 detachable stainless steel 3” long bbq probes & 2 grate clips
4 AAA batteries

Frequently Asked Questions

Does the XR-50 have the capability to connect to an app via WiFi or Bluetooth?2019-07-29T15:38:01+00:00
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Certainly not! This thermometer was built to be rugged, durable, easy to use, and HIGHLY reliable.  WiFi and Bluetooth have short range, rely on additional equipment, are prone to break with software updates, and your thermometer becomes a paperweight when the manufacturer decides to move onto a new model and stops supporting your old model.  The XR-50 is a self contained unit that gives you everything you need and want in an everyday thermometer right out of the box!

How often does the base unit communicate to the remote unit?2019-07-29T15:38:01+00:00
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

With INSTA-SYNC® technology, the base unit communicates to the remote unit almost immediately once the units are turned on and every 20 seconds afterward. You’ll enjoy instant turn-on connectivity and a much reduced false alarm rate when the receiver gets close to its range limit.

Is there a warning to let me know if the remote loses connection to the base unit?2019-07-29T15:38:01+00:00
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Yes. If connection to the base unit is lost for 48 seconds, the remote screen will start to flash. The remote unit will continue to try to connect to the base for 3 minutes (the screen will continue flashing). After three minutes without a connection, the remote unit will emit an audible alarm. [ABC note: we designed and LOVE this feature! It eliminates annoying alarm sounds when there is a temporary loss of connection, and waits until there is a defined “crisis point” before letting you know the connection has been disabled.]

Is there a way for me to check my thermometer if I’m concerned about inaccurate readings?2019-07-29T15:38:01+00:00
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

To test the accuracy of the thermometer, immerse the probes first in ice water (temperature should read 32 F) and then boiling water (temperature should read 212 F at sea level).  If the reported temperatures vary greatly from these standards, contact Maverick for additional troubleshooting and customer support.

How long will the batteries last?2019-07-29T15:38:01+00:00
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Under normal use, even cheap AAA batteries should last over a month. When needing to be replaced, the base unit and receiver use two standard AAA batteries each.

Where can I get replacement probes?2019-07-29T15:38:00+00:00
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Back-up probes, or to purchase probes after the 1-year warranty period has expired, can be purchased directly from Maverick.

    Great product - could be greater

    Erik Radock (verified owner)

    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

    Almost Perfect !

    Erin Streetman

    I love this thermometer except for one thing. Programmability should be on the receiving unit. IMHO. I don’t want to be forced to return to the pit if I decide to make a change on my settings. The unit is the best build quality I have seen. Settings are easy to change & it works perfectly. Hopefully there will be another version where everything can be controlled from the unit that stays with the user. I still like it & recommend it .
