    Thermometers~Instant read and monitoring

    I've been using a cheap Maverick monitoring thermometer from Lowes and also using an iGrill Mini~https://www.weber.com/US/en/product/igrill/

    I need to pick up a good instant read and possibly another monitoring thermometer. I like the iGrill, easy to monitor with a smartphone.


    What is everyone using?

    I use an iGrill 2 and a Lavatools PT12 Javelin.

    The really like the Javelin. It's a great instant read thermometer, works well. The gold standard for instant read thermometers is the Thermapen

    The iGrill 2 is ok. I gave up using it with my phone, going in and out of BT range doesn't work well at all. It constantly loses sync and won't reconnect, loses data, etc. What I do now is use my tablet that I leave in the garage. Not as convenient as having it on my phone, but it works and I don't have to walk all the way to the smoker.

    Here is what I want to get. Tappecue Meat Thermometer with Wifi Having it on Wifi is what I'm looking for. I've got all but one distant corner of our property covered with excellent wifi signal. I just haven't ordered it yet as it's still a little cold to think about much smoking, although I have bacon to do tomorrow.

    Actually I use this one for monitoring:

    https://www.walmart.com/ip/Taylor-Pr...Timer/26386556

    it is quite accurate. Just don't drop it . Been there done that.

    I had an expensive one that was remote read. Then the more I used it the less accurate it became, as much as 12 degrees warmer than actual temp.

    ThermaPen and I really want to splurge on the 'Smoke' sold by ThermoWorks. I've heard it's top of the line.

    I'm getting ready to put my first brisket on my Big Green Egg today so yesterday I was looking at these thermometers. Almost bought a Webber iGrill locally, but decided against it. For today, I'm going to do it the old fashioned way and just stick a regular meat thermometer in it and pop the lid from time to time.

    BUT... begin the gadget freak that I am, I'm leaning towards either the Cyber-Que (used by Kenny) or the ThermoWorks Smoke. If money was no object (which it is, but I'll somehow justify the cost ) what would people's preference be?

    I like the idea of the Cyber-Que with the fan, but I don't necessarily want something that needs plugged in. I would also like whatever I get to be wifi enabled (as opposed to BlueTooth) so I could monitor it from my other office (as opposed to just my home office).

    Mark, the Cyber-Q is WiFi enabled, and it connects to a website called sharemycook.com so you can monitor it from anywhere using just about any device.

    I prefer the plug in option, especially when your doing a 12-18 hour cook, no concern of dying batteries.
