Will the SmokeX Long-Range Wireless Thermometer become the Wi-Fi killer?
ThermoWorks, makers of some of the most reliable and consistent temperature monitoring devices introduced the new SmokeX Long-Range Wireless BBQ Alarm Thermomemeter today at an event at company headquarters in American Fork, UT.
The SmokeX Long-Range Wireless Thermometer is available in both two-channel and four-channel configurations allowing you to monitor either two or four temperature readings simultaneously.
The ability to monitor multiple temperatures is beneficial allowing you to keep tabs on your pit temperature and food temperature, or just keep an eye on how different foods are cooking simultaneously.
One of the features of the SmokeX Long-Range Wireless Thermometer I find most interesting is the ability to control the recently released Billows BBQ temperature control fan which can remotely increase or decrease the pit's temperature based on your cooking preference with the touch of a button.
The SmokeX Long-Range Wireless Thermometer comes with the monitoring base unit and an additional monitoring unit that easily fits in your pocket. The monitoring unit conveniently displays the temperatures you are monitoring with the option to set an alarm so you know exactly when the food is perfectly cooked.
ThermoWorks SmokeX Powers Through Where Other Devices Fall Short
SmokeX uses Radio Frequency or RF to transmit signals from the base unit and mobile monitoring devices. Using RF instead of Wi-Fi to transmit data allows the signal to be received over a mile away from where you're cooking without any obstruction from things like buildings, walls, or landscaping. Chances are you will stay close to home while cooking but the RF signal truly over-delivers the ability to transmit data. Most home monitoring devices fall short failing at about 300 feet where SmokeX has the ability to send data over 20X that distance.
The applications for SmokeX are quite diverse and similar to other ThermoWorks products it's great for Grilling, Smoking, Sous Vide cooking or one of my favorites, combining both Sous Vide cooking and Barbecue
