Finally, just in time for Mothers Day (or Fathers Day going by the delivery delays).
Inkbird wi-fi BBQ thermometer, 4 probes, waterproof, rechargeable (~25hr battery life).
Perfect for those low & slow cooks, wi-fi (2.4Ghz) for longer range. Connect to your phone & monitor your cooking. The app even graphs your cook.
Do you need this? Well if you're carnivorous & BBQ, then the answer is yes.
But why do I need 4 probes? Well so you can cook 4 different pieces of meat cooked to order, you can monitor different part of the roast, because you bloody well can!
But the Bluetooth one is cheaper! Yeah but wi-fi has a longer range. Doing a low & slow overnighter? you don't even have to get out of bed. <edit>
if you have a VPN in theory (I haven't tried it yet) you could VPN back into your home network Apparently it has cloud connectivity (thanks @BIAP & @DWHES) and check whilst your out errr oh yeah we're not allow out in Victoria yet, but one day we might be able to venture outside.
What the hell do I need waterproof for? Err because you can cook in the rain & stay dry.
But can't I just use a cheap $20-$40 instant read thermometer, it allows me to socially distance from my family? Sure, but with this you can cook and socially distance from them in the shed/garage/mate next door, next month you'll be able to cook & watch the footy, uninterrupted….well except when the temp alarm beeps, hopefully at half time).
But the real reason you want it, as soon you'll be allowed to invite friends over for a BBQ (remember when that happened?), you're missus will be impressed by the pretty colours of the probes (OMG you can colour code the meat!!!!) and your mates will be so impressed with your sub $100 purchase.
