My old reliable ThermoPro finally gave up the ghost and I need a new remote read thermometer with at least 2 probes. I’m open to wireless probes if I hear real world reports about them working as they should. A plus would be one that could link to my wifi and I could monitor with my phone from anywhere, am I reaching too far with all that?

I use the Thermpro TP-27B which has 4 probes and the receiver has a range of around 500 feet. The receiver is small and will clip on belt if needed. I had a weber I-Grill and it died in about 6 months. Really like the Thermpro.

Meater seemed like it was coming along, but all I hear is complaints about not being able to walk farther than 20 ft from it. That kills it for me. Thermopro.

I have the TP-25H2 Thermopro. 2 probes, an LED screen, plus Bluetooth. Claims a 500ft range, I know it works at about 250ft. The long probes are not as accurate as I like. I substituted a shorter probe from my Weber iGrill. Seems more accurate. My wife prefers the iGrill (single probe) but it doesn't have a screen and the distance is much shorter. I tend to use my Thermopro Thermopen the most for instant read. I guess I have a bunch of meat thermos.

New in the last year? I looked over a year ago and saw those complaints a lot. I'll take a look again, because I really like the wireless probe idea.

I have a meater, one of the early ones. What I do is hook it into my iPad thru the bluetooth and put the iPad close to the smoker but inside. Then my iPad is on my wifi sending the info to the meater cloud and I can use the meater app on my phone anywhere I want to. At the house or not. If I'm doing stuff around the house, then I'll usually just walk over to my iPad and check it.

I don't use those pad things though. My BGE's are on my back porch, so no real issue. My Lang is in my driveway and I set it up a good ways from the house.

I think the Meater Block has a wifi tablet that comes with it. Anyone have that one?

I have the Meater Block with 4 probes, I've used it for over a year and love it! The block connects to WiFi, and you set the block near the probes for the Bluetooth connection when cooking. You can use the probes in the oven, smoker or on the grill. Because it has 4 probes you can use it to monitor the temperature of multiple types of food or different temps for various cuts of meat (i.e. 1 person wants their steak at Medium, 1 person wants at Rare). Each probe is numbered 1-4 and that is how you configure your cook in your Meater app. When you're done using the probes after you clean them off the block also charges the probes back up for next use. I use probes to reverse smoke to 110, then slap on the grill til it gets to temp. The meater also uses algorithms to tell you when to remove meat accounting for resting time coming up to temp so you don't overcook.

Highly recommend!

Okay one more rant from me and then I will shut up. Let me go ahead and apologize.

When I first got the Meater, downloaded the app, the first thing it prompted me to do was set up an account with email/password. My immediate thought was "WTF this is a thermometer." Anyways that soured me too.
