Wireless grill thermometers, especially those linked to an app on your phone or tablet, take it a step further. Wireless grill thermometers can alert you to those important times when you need to return and tend to your meat. They can even virtually cook it for you, offering recipes for all types of grilling opportunities. Here are a few that offer to monitor your meat for you, so you don’t flip your lid.

There’s a lot to like in the Meater Plus, beginning with its wireless range up to 165 feet, allowing you to get to emails, do a quick chore, or even make a run to the washroom without endangering the quality of your finished product. An app on your phone or tablet connected to a pair of sensors and a probe keeps an eye on the internal temperature and alerts you if it gets too hot. You can also connect it to Alexa.
Stands up to the heat
The ThermoPro offers a nice collection of features. We like the kitchen timer function, which beeps and flashes once a preset temp is reached, facilitating lengthy cooking projects. There are nine preset temperatures that cover all varieties of meat-based on USDA recommendations, but any or all are easy to change for those who prefer their own go-to methods of grilling. This thermometer’s range extends 300 feet, or through the rooms and hallways of your house.
Handy and versatile
This is a good option for those who take their BBQ on the road. Want an excellent grill when you’re in the great outdoors? This thermometer reads temperatures fast – in as little as three seconds – and can be washed or dropped or get wet without affecting its performance. Numbers can be read easily no matter what the environmental lighting is, with the easy-to-read cooking thermometer that displays the temperature on a luminous LED screen.
Upgrades and modernizes older models
It makes sense that one of the most accessorized and brand-loyal grills in the marketplace should have its own wireless thermometer. The iGrill3 comes with its own app and attaches directly to the side table of any Genesis II or Spirit II gas grill out there. There is a large database on the app for cooking meats if you want to be fully automated. And the app will save and catalog your previous cooks – it even records pictures and descriptions – so you can easily reference and even improve your grills in the future.
For those who won’t want or need all the bells and whistles of the Meater Plus, the Original Meater does just fine. Like its longer-ranged sibling, the original is wireless. It uses two sensors and a probe to monitor the cooking process of your meat, and it comes with a free app that will set up temperature and time alerts at your desire as well as provide step-by-step instructions or guidance through a variety of grilling recipes.
