Default A good wireless grilling thermometer?

i am in the market for a grilling thermator that I will use with my Green Egg. Does anyone have a recommendation for a reasonably priced one that you like. Maybe one that will communicate through my iPhone. Thanks for any feedback,

I have a cheapy Charbroil from Walmart that I bought 3-4 years ago. It has wireless display and a probe with 5 sensors that displays the coolest temp. It has worked flawlessly and battery life is excellent.

Thermoworks smoke. Will monitor 2 channels simultaneously with a variety of different probe options. Comes with a meat probe and a pit probe. Can set high and low temp alerts for both channels.

When cooking I typically use the pit probe, and initially probe the smallest piece of meat. Judge the rest off of it.

Main thing i like about thermoworks beyond their high high quality is the ease of getting replacement probes. All makes/models will have probes go bad on ocassion. You can also get lots of different types of probes if that benefits your needs.

I have a Maverick and an Oregon Scientific and both have been working well. Listen to autobaun and get a double probe. It will not only tell you when the meat is done it will warn you if the Egg gets too hot or drops below where you want it. You can wash the actual probes but don't get the wires wet.

short of going with a BBQ Guru, itís the way to go. Especially when doing long cooks overnight. It will beep at you if it gets hot or cold. If you are curious you can check it at a glance. For long cooks, I am much more concerned about pit temp than I am meat temp. And the dial thermometer that come on the eggs are absolute garbage.

A bourbon and a cigar are both wireless and good candidates

maverick ET732 is great, and half the price of the thermoworks. mine just keeps going and going. I'm a big fan of thermoworks stuff too, but don't have any experience with their BBQ thermometer

any of these work in wi fi vs bluetooth? Neighborhood pool is too far from the house for Wi Fi. I actually used a web cam last summer, but I like the alarm functions.

Wireless gateway added to Thermoworks smoke will. I don't have this for mine, but have never had any issue with any thermoworks products.

Is it?

I've been so close to pulling the trigger on the Smoke so many times since it came out. But what about Signals? It's a bit more expensive than the Smoke + Gateway, but has 4 probes instead of 2.

It seems like a weird product line up price wise. Smoke is great as a BT device at $100, but I think I'd go Signal if I wanted wifi....
