It is like being there without having to be there. With some software, you can even program it to automatically lower the pit temperature when the meat hits a predefined setting.
OK... that's nice. Who's going to handle a grease fire? Ask you neighbor? Who is going to burp the egg?
How are you going to probe for tenderness by wi-fi?
Who's going to pull off the meat when done?

Sorry - no excuse or justification for lack of responsibility (not being there).
