Remote thermometer question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
There's supposedly a remote digital thermometer out there that's pretty expensive -- around $175, I think -- and I hear it'll send you emails and text messages to your phone. Anyone know what this is?

yea, I have a custom built one that does all of those things, but it's way more expensive than that biggrin.gif . Call it a money waster if you want; say that it takes away from the art if you want. But quite frankly if the smoker can run on it's own and let me know when I need to do something, I say yeehaw.


You might look at http://rocksbarbque.com/ . His unit does quite a bit of stuff, and I think the web software is free, which I think will send you emails or pages.
The other comercial unit is http://www.thebbqguru.com/ (which appears to currently be down....not sure what's up there). It doesn't do emails but does a very good job of controlling temperature, and one of the options is a remote you can carry around with ou.

With that said, I agree with Dude (gosh....that hurts saying that out loudwink.gif ), if all you want is notifications around the house, the Maverick does a heck of a job.

Thanks, Josh. The Stoker from Rocks BBQ is the one I was looking for.

Well, its probably not exactly what you are looking for, but in looking through catalogs at work ( I do instrumentation) I found that www.omega.com has wireless thermocouple transmitters that will send the temp to your computer. They are pricy at around 200-250, but the probes (thermocouples) will always be available and easy to replace, Plus you can record your smoke on the data recorder lol. I've bought a couple of el-cheapos for now, but will be using this in the future.
