Grilling season! It’s the best time of the year. For me, living down in Florida, grilling season is 12-months and 365 days long. For anyone out there living in colder climates grilling season is a finite amount of time that should be taken advantage of. This year, you’re going to upgrade your Bluetooth wireless meat thermometer so that you can start cooking the best meat of your life.
There are a ton of different Bluetooth wireless meat thermometers out there on the market. Today we’re going to find the best one for you. I’m a huge fan of slow-cooking using my Traeger Tailgater. Spending 8 hours on a Saturday smoking a brisket while chilling in the pool is my idea of a perfect day. But I wouldn’t be able to fully relax without a trusty wireless meat thermometer that syncs up with my iPhone.
Ironically, the true value of a Bluetooth wireless meat thermometer is that it allows you to disconnect from the grill. With many of the top wireless thermometers out there you can set the smartphone app to a specific temperature. When your meat reaches that temperature the wireless thermometer will send you an alert and you can act accordingly.
So, if you’re cooking a brisket on your wood-fire smoker you can set the thermometer to alert you when the internal temperature of the meat gets to 160-degrees Fahrenheit. Then you can wrap it up in foil and put it back on the smoker until the temp hits 204F. This way you lock in more flavor and end up with a truly perfect brisket. This would be NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE without the use of a Bluetooth wireless meat thermometer. I’m guessing most of you already know why these wireless meat thermometers are so clutch and you’re tired of me rambling. So I’ll just get right down to it and we can check out the best wireless meat thermometers of 2018.

This is a fantastic entry-level option. Calling it ‘entry level’ seems unfair because this wireless meat thermometer has everything you’ll want and more. It’s only $29.99, which is a huge plus. With over 1,200 reviews on Amazon, it has a rating of 4.3 out of 5 stars which is pretty remarkable. It comes with one 6.5″ stainless steel probe (with a manufacturer warranty).

The Meater is a single probe wireless meat thermometer but you can purchase a set of 4 of these if you’d rather have more than one. The idea being you can use all four at once to check the temperature at various parts of the meat instead of only testing one spot. I used the Meater this past Thanksgiving while smoking a turkey and I was blown away by how accurate the reading was. This probe has a range of 10 meters (32+ feet). So you’ll be able to stay synced up to the probe throughout your house. I’m a huge fan of the Meater smartphone app. It has one of the best user experiences out there.

It all syncs up with an accompanying smartphone app. You can set the temperature to whatever you desire and when the probes reach that temp they’ll alert you that your meat is cooked. This product has over 1,300 reviews on Amazon. I previously owned this but lost it when I moved houses last year. What sets this apart from the best wireless meat thermometers available in 2018? It works from up to 300 feet away. That’s clutch.

With nearly 2,000 reviews on Amazon, the ThermoPro TP-08 has an impressive 4.3 out of 5-star rating.
