Per a recipe for pork butt, I'm finishing in foil. As soon as I wrapped the butt in foil my remote unit failed to register the meat probe temperature. The probe continues to read properly on the console and the remote continues to properly read the cook time and case temperature. Only the meat probe temperature is disrupted.
What's up with this? I can't believe that the foil is blocking the transmitter's signal since the signal simply must originate from the console, otherwise the smoker's body would block it.
