All the pros say “cook to temp, not time.” One of the easiest ways to ensure that food is cooked right, every time, is using one of these thermometers! As for thermometers, accuracy and speed are the name of the game. Eliminate the guess work. This model has an easy to read display, and intuitive design.
For an RF device, the TP-08 by ThermoPro has decent range (300 feet), and a great price point ($10-15 less than comparable brands). Allows users to monitor both the grill (ambient) and the food temp in one view. A timer, alarm, and easy to read buttons round out the feature set.
Topping the list this year are two awesome wifi/cloud devices. Bluetooth and RF devices are limited by distance. If you want to truly “cut the cord,” give these two serious consideration.
Tappecue is a favorite with BBQ enthusiasts, including competition judges. Reviewers say it provides solid and accurate temperatures that can be accessed from most any device via smartphone app or your PC. Works over WiFi, and has an offline mode if you’re off the grid. Look back on past cooks with the stored data feature. Launched out of Kansas City, arguably the epicenter of barbecue, Tappecue has a strong reputation in the BBQ world.
FireBoard has been gaining in popularity ever since it’s famed Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign got attention. Similar to Tappecue, it works over WiFi and is cloud-based. If you’re investing hundreds of dollars in a BBQ/Grill and in a grocery bill — you’ll want to protect that investment with smart monitoring capabilities.
