Whether you're an avid griller or just starting out this season, having all the necessary tools to cook a mouthwatering meal is a must. Perhaps you've already got your basting brush, carving board, and sauces at the ready, but monitoring the temperature of your meat is the most important step. While grilling typically requires your immediate attention, one meat thermometer was designed to let you step away from the grill without worry of overcooking.

The MEATER Long Range Smart Wireless Meat Thermometer lets any grill chef move up to 165 feet away and observe the cooking process through a free app. The smartphone and tablet-compatible app features a guided cook system that will lead you to a perfect meal from start to finish. The system allows you to set up custom alerts on rising temperatures and lets you know when it's time to remove your meat, fish, chicken, or pork from the grill or oven. Dual sensors closely monitor internally up to 212 degrees Fahrenheit and external temperatures up to 527° F at the same time. You can easily plan out meals with the additional help of the advanced estimator algorithm, determining how long you may need to cook a given recipe, alongside resting time.
