The iGrill was one of the first BBQ tech gadgets I ever purchased and now iDevices iGrill2 is the latest in BBQ thermometers and app innovation. Paying more than $100 for a meat thermometer can seem a little steep but it’s worth every penny. This high tech thermometer makes sure your meat is cooked to perfection by connecting with your smartphone via Bluetooth and an outstanding app interface. It’s great for searing steaks but I’ve found it most useful for low and slow cooks and has 4 probes available. The iGrill2app allows you to set a range of great meat temperature presets or set your own cooking temperature targets. With capacity for four sensors you can combine their meat probes with fire temperature probes and track your pit fire temp and also the cook progress on three cuts of meat. If you have long cooks on briskets or pork shoulders the iGrill2is a must have tool.
