Long distance call from Germany

Howdy folks,

many greetings to this community from the other side of the pond (Germany).

My name is Tom and I am eager to learn new grilling tips & techniques here in this forum.
I do own a Weber Q300 with rotisserie and currently I'm working on a project to make my Maverick ET-732 "wifi-ready" by capturing the RF-data between sender unit and receiver unit. My ambitious plan is to display and monitor the temperature readings on my cell phone while a long-job like pulled pork is sizzling on the grill and I am away from home.

Since I'm not a native English speaker I hope you guys will forgive my orthographic "mishaps". Thanks in advance :biggrin:

If you are away you miss the fun of all the

accoutrement of smoking and 'Q.

The beer, while waiting to peek, for example!

The smell -  oh yeah!

Hi, a pulled pork easily needs 20 hours or more. I don't need to hang around there for the full time, meanwhile I can run some errands or so ...
Regarding beer: I won't miss the fun of drinking while away from home since in my country we are allowed to drink in public, even while driving :cheers:
