Computer Based Thermometers

Hi folks.

With my third Maverick Remote Thermometer going tits up, I thought I'd ask here in the forums to see what options I have. I sit on a computer all day, and would probably be happy if I could get my computer to get temperatures every minute to see if she's done. I'd hook up 3 thermoprobes internally for house heat, meat1 heat, and meat2 heat. If I could grab that information through some kind of wireless, that would be great.

Anybody know of such a solution? These Chinese made gadgets cost me time, money, and frustration when all I want is a temperature. I can't keep running down to see the temp, and wireless could handle all kinds of items.

Your thoughts/experience?

Cheers

I use Nu-Temp for monitoring my pit temps. Have an OS for meat, but have never used it.

Hey thanks guys.

The CyberQ/DigiQ seem fantastic. Is it wireless? It says USB, but I don't want to have to buy a computer to sit beside my smoker. I'm not sure if I understand it.

Best thing to do would be to get a hold of Bob Trudnak at the Guru. His email is:

bbqbob@thebbqguru.com

Or you can call him toll free at 800-288-GURU

I contacted Maverick and they're sending me another probe. This is the last attempt at their products. If it doesn't work I'll be writing something to them.

Thanks for the information Greg.
