Top critical review
Broke within two hours of using.
May 30, 2018
I purchased this because of the great reviews and fair price, but I had to return this because it stopped working during my first and only use. First off, it took about three or four attempts to get the receiver and transmitter to sync. When it finally did, the smoker probe was reading accurate with my backup thermometer, and the meat probe was matching up with another digital thermometer that I own, but as I was approaching the second hour, problems started to occur. The meat probe jumped about 40 degrees hotter than the actual internal temperature, and throughout the course of trying to troubleshoot, the temp would fluctuate anywhere between 105-190 degrees. At first, I was just going to call the manufacturer and see if I could get a replacement for the meat probe, but the smoker probe started doing the same thing. I'm sure I was just one of the unlucky few who received a defected one, but I've decided to go with something different.
