Default Deal NOT TO BE MISSED 19.99 remote thermometer

If you don't have a remote thermometer and are looking for a great deal it's one day only - http://www.woot.com

here's the description:
Get All Up Out Of Your Grill

There are two paths to barbecue nirvana. You can stand watch over the grill, nursing the meat along with painstaking concern – a quarter-turn here, a dab of sauce there, fretting all the while. Or you can lounge poolside, icy drink in hand, and let the grill fly solo. Just wander over about halfway through, flip everything, then amble back to your chaise. Some may call this approach “lazy”. But we admire its Zenlike calm, its unhurried languor, its easygoing laidbackitude. Why worry? Your barbecue is in good hands with the Maverick Remote BBQ Thermometer & Timer. Just use the controls to tell it how you like your steaks, burgers, dogs, or ribs, and it’ll let you know when they’re ready, from up to 150 feet away.
The wireless probe transmits all the relevant info to the receiver unit, which displays temperature and timer data on its backlit LCD. When your foodstuffs reach your preferred state of consumability, a voice alert pipes up to let you know. Is that it? That’s it.
We know it can be tough for Type A grillers to relinquish control, to trust the fates with their precious barbecue. But piling all that stress on top of all that meat is hell on your heart. And let’s face it: too much meddling from you will probably do more harm than good anyway. The grill knows what it’s doing. Best to just stay out of its way. Go watch a ballgame or something – the Maverick Remote BBQ Thermometer & Timer will call you when it’s time to eat.

Warranty: One year

Features:
  • Voice alert tells you "Your food is almost ready" and "your food is ready"
  • Monitor food from up to 150 feet away
  • Six meat pre-sets and four doneness levels
  • Great for indoor or outdoor use
  • Receiver rests in transmitter when not in use
  • Easy-to-use pushbutton controls
  • Amber backlit LCD
  • Four AAA batteries included

Temps are preset, you cannot use this like the other ones where you can set your desired temp. I'd watch out for this one. These are basically like the Weber thermometers from Oregon Technologies.

I can see where that could be a problem, but I mainly want to know the temp...never really use the alarms. For just $25 after shipping, I'm willing to give it a try.

So what does this mean? It will not track temps remotely but only has some number of preset temps for the warnings??

I believe it will track temps, but there are only preset temps for the alarm to go off at. Like you can't set it for 192 degree's, you have to use one of the preset temps. I was thinking of a couple for just general monitoring. Every temp probe I've gotten has crapped pout with in a few uses. Scott

The temps are pre-set for specific meats (Turkey 180* Pork 170* ) Only the Beef Lamb and Veal are programmable to pre-set Rare,Med,Well done temps on the Weber,OS,NexxTech models. I dried out a pork roast and turkey before I fingered it out! I basically use it as an alarm for my target temp, then use my Polder.

I have a couple that are similar to this. I set the first alarm at 160. That's about when I wrap. The next is at 180. Once it hits there, I'm keeping an eye on the meat anyway.

The manual says you can override the presets and put your own temp in...is that not true?
