Review of Maverick XR50 Wireless BBQ & Meat Thermometer. I have been a big fan of Maverick Thermometers for years now.
Love the PT 100 Maverick ProTemp Instant Read Thermometer (Our Store) for checking meat temps on the go. For longer cooks I have used the ET 732, both at home and cooking at the farmer’s market. You just can’t go wrong with a Maverick line up. One of the things I really like are that these thermometers are that they rubber incased or as I call them “Combat Hardened”. So, if you drop one it doesn’t shatter.
I have 4 temp probes that I can use anyway I need as meat or grill thermometers. With both High/Low set points with an alarm to let me know when I reach any of my set points. With a range of 500 feet I can monitor my cook from anywhere in the house and never have to fool with my phone!
- Insta-Sync Technology (They sync right up!)
- Monitor 4 things at the same time
- LED display screen and temperature graph
- Durable waterproof stainless-steel probes (4)
- Wireless digital thermometer for cooking, grilling, BBQ, oven and more!
- Temp range from 32* to 572*
- High Temp Probe Wires Rated to 716*
We found that the XR50 was well made and looked good. I like that it has both magnets on the back or a stand you can use. Too Easy. I found lots of cool features. I could set my High/Low temp or use the presets. A timer that alarms at your set point for each probe. Easy to set and read even for me!
That said I don’t like to BBQ with my phone or any apps, Ok I’ll admit it, I’m an “Old Guy”. And this is so easy to use, just insert your probe and if you want to use them set your set points. I have used it both ways
I was not surprised at how easy this went. So, I thought to do a fair test I would do a big cut of meat to use a few probes to see how they read. I inserted a probe in the shoulder and ham on a pig. I did a few Tri Tips wanting to see how it would read on both the thick and thin parts of the roast. Then, a probe for the grill temp.
But what I enjoyed the most was a Reverse Sear on a 3-pound Tomahawk Steak. Did the set points and enjoyed our “Date Night” while keeping an eye on our steak.

We found that the Maverick XR50 Wireless BBQ & Meat Thermometer was easy to use and gave us accurate temperature readings. This would be a plus in anyone’s BBQ tool box.
