Digital BBQ Thermometer review
Ok, so you’ve treated yourself to a nice shiny new BBQ, or your looking at trying Low’N’Slow style Barbecue, the first bit of kit, that I really see as vital is a digital thermometer. Very often the dial style BBQ lid thermometer that come on BBQs and smokers are wildly inaccurate, and we hear of many new to BBQ struggling with their smoker temperatures, and find out this is due to the inaccuracy of the thermometers, so get yourself a digital thermometer, so you can properly monitor your cook.
The iGrill Mini is an awesome little bluetooth digital thermometer, with only one probe, that links to your mobile phone or ipad to give you a graphical way of monitoring your cook. Available for £40
The iGrill 2 is the bluetooth big brother, with 2 probes and a digital readout, see my full review here. Available for around £75.
The ChefAlarm from ETI is well regarded through the BBQ community, ETI are the producers of the Thermapen you’re able to set temperature alarms, comes with a single probe, and is incredibly reliable, Available for £42
Maverick Digital Wireless Thermometers are the workhorses of the digital BBQ thermometer world, many of us seasoned BBQers use them regularly, and have never been let down by them, I’ve had my own set for around 4 years, and they are still ready and raring to go, with two probes, one for the meat,one for the smoker temperature, they are always reliable, and a great value. Available for around £55
This is just a selection of the ones I’ve tried, and had feedback from other members of the BBQ group.
