A grill thermometer displays the ambient temperature within the cooking chamber or food to help you get perfectly cooked or smoked meat. Unfortunately, not all grill thermometers are reliable as some can even be a few degrees off!
To avoid these products, our experts have tested many items and have landed on the best 4 on the market.
The Vauno wireless meat thermometer was not only reliable for a table spread that was cooked professionally, but is also very durable. The receiver and transmitter gave our team a range of 490 feet, which is virtually unlimited. This way, you won’t have to babysit your grill while leaving your party unattended.
The digital display is easy to read and shows all the information such as various temperature settings and the buttons on the left are for meat settings and the ones on the right are for the timers.
You can even set a high or low temperature setting at which the thermometer will inform you when to add fuel.
Many of the best wireless grill thermometers out there barely scrape 50, so why would you spend well over 100 dollars? Let our team explain why.
The MeatStick WiFi Pro Set comes with true smart wireless capabilities that have unlimited range. You will be able to insert the probes directly into the meat and leave it in for the entire cooking process - that’s how tough they are.
The cleanup is easy as both probes are dishwasher safe, great for low and slow cooking, and can even go in the deep fryer. While this kind of quality doesn’t come at a budget price, you’re very assured of the versatility and convenience it can give.
The Taimasi is among the most affordable meat thermometers in the market. It comes with a small case, which was very handy to keep all the components together since the meat thermometer has 4 probes.
The wireless thermometer is long range which can reach up to 500 feet. This is the option our expert chefs would recommend if you often grill multiple meats at once. Each probe is color coded to help you better keep track of the cooking process.
The Taimasi thermometer also has a meat injector, comes with batteries, and is suitable for many cooking methods.
For those who want to rely on their phones, the BFOUR meat thermometer is one that requires your smartphone to monitor and control the settings. You have a 200-foot range with Bluetooth 5.0 technology for more stability.
The app is very straightforward and the thermometer comes with alarm and timer settings along with 11 USDA preset temperatures. There are 2 probes included with your purchase crafted from stainless steel for extra durability.
What our pitmasters liked was the large LCD screen that made it very easy to read the information at a glance.
Our BBQ masters say the display on the wireless grill thermometer needs to be large and clear in order to get a clear view of the information.
Most wireless meat thermometers offer long-range connectivity, but our experts say to be aware of obstructions such as walls that can limit the distance.
Make sure the grill thermometers alert you loud and clear when the temperature reaches the high or low setting.
The title of the best wireless grill thermometer goes to the Vauno model. It’s so easy to use and durable and allows you to monitor more than one ingredient at once. You can get up to 490 ft in range outdoors and the probe can withstand temperatures up to 716F or 380C and it’s not afraid of rain or spillage thanks to the IPX7 rating.
