It’s easier than you think to gauge when dinner is ready. Amazon

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.

MEATER Plus | 165ft Long Range Smart Wireless Meat Thermometer with Bluetooth for The Oven, Grill, Kitchen, BBQ, Smoker, Sous Vide, Rotisserie

Help is here

A nice touch is the guided cook system, allowing even the newbie to look like a seasoned pro. MEATER

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.

ThermoPro TP20 Wireless Remote Digital Cooking Food Meat Thermometer with Dual Probe for Smoker Grill BBQ Thermometer

Stands up to the heat

Its lithium-ion battery can be recharged up to three times over its life, assuring longevity. ThermoPro

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.

Weber 7204 iGrill 3 Grill Thermometer

Upgrades and modernizes older models

It’s like having your own personal grilling coach. Weber

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.
