Does anyone make a Temperature Gauge that can monitor meat temperature via Wifi signal?
I know you can buy the wireless type but the range is limited. I know there are some made that you can control the pit with fans, etc via Wifi.
I was just curious if there are any just to monitor the internal temp of meat but not control the heat.

YOu can get the CyberQ unit. It monitors smoker temperature, and food temperature as well as control temperature via fans in the smoker. It has its own web server so you can monitor your smoker from the internet or smart phone as well.
I have a pellet pooper so controlling the heat might be a double edged sword. I have a Traeger and it is cooking a little hotter then what the controller is telling me, but if there was a way to install the monitor and utilize the fans for a more accurate cooking temperature I could maybe justify getting it. I just got the Traeger a week ago and still trying to survive the learning curve that I'm in.

Love my CyberQ but purchasing one for a Traeger would be quite a waste of money. You could look into something like the IGrill

I have the Maverick unit with two probes. It controls nothing but sends the signal to a handheld unit which I bring in the house. The hand unit has nice alarms for temp off either probe - can set for two meats or one meat and cooker temp.
