Barbecue pitmasters can now rejoice as their lives are about to get that much easier with a new invention known as iGrillmini. The Bluetooth app-enabled grilling thermometer is the must-have for any grilling enthusiast.
We recently put this compact unit to the test to see if we could really set it and forget it. Instead of having to worry about reaching a certain temperature for your barbecued meats, just insert the thermometer and let the unit do the rest for you.
Simply mount the magnetic unit (in one of the two settings) to either an outdoor barbecue grill or smoker. What makes this device so convenient is its magnetic probe also wraps for easy storage. The LED sensor will illuminate when you are within range to conserve energy and show you the current temperature as it cooks. The unit uses Bluetooth Smart range technology (up to 150 feet) so you can grill year round without having to stand out in the cold weather. Be sure to download the iGrillmini free iOS app for iPhone 4S and newer and iPad 3 and newer devices.
This compact device is about a quarter of the size of the original iGrill and uses a coin cell battery that will last nearly 200 hours. With this unit, you will be able to monitor precise temperatures, receive alerts, set timers and even view recipes.
The iGrillmini costs just $39.99 and can be purchased directly through iDevices at http://store.idevicesinc.com/igrillmini.
