    Need a thermometer and want one that will last and won't need to be upgraded when I move on to other smokers or whatever. I like the 4 probe deal which means igrill2, et735, or the tappecue. Anyone been using a tpq for awhile now. Thoughts or experience would be appreciated.
     
  2. I will be ordering the tapaque when I am back home next week so can't yet comment on how it works but everything I have read is positive. I have used my new 2 probe Igrill about 6 times in the last month and it is very accurate. However the Bluetooth range is awful which means I usually go out to the sending unit on the grill to read it manually. Since the last 2 cooks have been multiple low slow brisket that means going out to the grill in the middle of the night so I decided I don't need a .$100 manual thermometer. I am hopeful the tapaque wifi is much more reliable.

    I'm primarily on a wsm at the momen so I am torn between a guru or a tpq. I really like the 4 probes. I want something that will last and be the so called top of the line. We'll see I guess. The trigger finger doesn't stay itchy long.
     
  4. We have 2 pellet grills at 2 different house, one in a housing development and one on a river with very few neighbors and the Igrill Bluetooth doesn't work very far away or reliably at either place. Hope this helps your decision making process.
     
  5. Sorry, one more thought. You can always buy the Igrill at lowes like I did and if you don't like it you can take it back like I am going to do. Our local lowes stocks the Igrill for $99 with two probes. We shop at lowes a lot and they have never questioned any return I have made over the years.

    The Tappecue is unlike no other. Wifi, 4 probes, graphs, and very accurate. If you can afford it, you will not be disappointed.

    I've had my Tappecue for about 2 months and love it.  I was playing golf last Sunday and noticed my Rec Tec pit temp was climbing a bit to high early in the cook and I didn't want my ribs to cook too fast, so I called home and had the girlfriend lower my smoker temp 15 degrees.  Helped me save those ribs from being overcooked.  Also love the graphing (this graph wasn't from that cook - this is some butts I cooked up a while back).
