  • Beeping sound when temp level is hit. Different models have their own way of alerting you when a temp setting is hit. Some models have a robotic voice that talks when alerting you on the same. But this can get monotonous over time. That’s why Maverick included a beeping sound instead.
  • A wide range of presets for various types of meat These features have been included so that you can use them if need be. Some people already know their target temps. But it’s a good feeling to know that they can be used when there is need to. In addition to this, there are presets for a wide range of game meats.

Cons

The connection between the transmitter and the receiver is subject to the limitations faced by wireless devices. You can roam anywhere you want, including going to your neighbors’ house as long as it’s within the 300 foot range. Even if you’re indoors, one or two walls away is still okay. But if you move to the basement, you can’t maintain that connection due to the concrete walls.

It also saves the smoker from losing temperature as a result of opening the lid every time you want to check your meat. Basically, this product was designed to bring convenience to all game meat lovers out there.
