NEED TECHNICAL HELP!

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

Last week I had a pork shoulder on the smoker that was getting close to the IT wantedl, but also had to leave the house for a meeting. I though to myself  " It sure would be nice if I had an thermometer with an app on my iphone, so I could keep tabs on my temps while away from the house!"  Has anyone ever heard of such a thing? If not, how to go about developing such a product?

It's not cheap, but here is one that'll do it https://www.rocksbarbque.com/

 

As far as developing one, there's a group of guys over on http://tvwbb.com/eve/forums/a/frm/f/9270072103 that will help you build one based on an Arduino platform.  Look for the Linkmeter thread

I did hear something like that a long time ago but like Ryan said it's not cheap. I want to say about 200.00 or so.

The Rock's system I am looking at is $500+, but, I want 4 food sensors @ $39 on top of a $369 base price for my system.... 
 

That's why I like the arduino alternative.  It takes some work and probably some cussing but it should come in under $100.

I know very little about this app, but it does look pretty cool

Just a thought..... what good is an app that tells you your meat has reached the correct internal temperature if you're away from the smoker and therefore can't take it out?

 

Maybe I'm missin' something. :)

The iGrill is sorta what I was thinkin, but it only reaches 200 ft. I was thinkin more if I went to the store or the local pub for a couple. The Stoker is way to much, I don't need draft control or stuff like that. Oh well! I'm sure it will come around some day. Thanks for all the input!

Someone on this forum, a few months back, had a controller that talked to his USB port on his home computer and he communicated with it from his "phone" or something and could turn on and off his hotplate... I think.... I'm getting too old to remember this stuff in detail....  He was celebrating his accomplishment..... Someone might remember what I'm relating or maybe it was all a dream...

TOTRS.... (to old to remember s***)......... Dave
