I have owned a Maverick and presently own a Thermoworks Smoke ll. It's rural here and cell phone apps work very poorly here. Looking for a wireless remote that will penetrate my garage doors and the brick walls of my house while I am sleeping and doing an overnight smoke. Neither the Maverick or Smoke ll can do this.

I have an Ink bird that I have no problems with . IBT-4SX . My router is dual band . Connecting to the 2.4 gives better results .

That's the speed of wireless routers . 2.4 or 5G . 2.4 is better for going thru walls and such .

I was speaking with someone at Thermoworks the other day and one of the items she mentionsed was their Smoke X long range bbq alarm thermometer. She said it has a 1.24 mile line of sight range. I don't know how it works going threw brick walls. I would give them a call to see if that would work for you. Maybe theywould let you try it and if it didn't work return it.

The link for it is below.

I have the Thermpro TP-20 Works great for me to about 250 ft. I also use a Tappecue touch. this one works great on wifi, 4 probes and I can be 50 miles away and still see my temps. I do use this one for overnight smokes and at work. its around 120 for starter set up.

I do have the one chopsaw chopsaw has. I have lost connection 3 times from on the driveway to other end of house ( approx 90') which there would be numerous walls between A & B. It does reconnect itself almost immediately though.
Also have the IRF-4S, and TP20 that I have not lost anything in same location.

I've had the 1RF-4S a couple of weeks now. It's a far better unit than a ThermoWorks Smoke II for short smokes so far. Doing a butt overnight tonight and using the 1RF-4S for the the same situation the Smoke II failed on. We'll see how well it has done in the morning.
