Rookie cook compared to most on here. Need blue tooth one for pork loins and such. Any suggestions?

Iíll second what poppy said. Wife got me the one in the link below last year for Christmas. You can set one probe for your grill temp and put the other probe in your meat. You can set min and max alarms to go off if your meat gets to temp and to go off if your grill gets too hot or too cold. Itís SUPER easy to use too. Definitely worth the money.

I used it a couple weeks ago on my brisket. Was able to set it up and go to bed without having to worry about any temps.

EDIT: my link totally jacked up the thread so Iíve deleted it. Just google Thermoworks Smoke

Do they make a meat thermometer with a cordless probe?  Kicking around the idea of doing a pig in the ground and not sure the cord will be long enough.

www.meater.com.  Got one for Christmas.  You can monitor temps with an app on your phone.  Check it out...

Just got it for Christmas and haven't used it yet.  My brother loves his, and the reviews I've seen are excellent.  Hope to try it out on a prime rib soon!

Gotcha.  When you do get around to using it, let me know how it worked.  The overall reviews have been pretty good but a couple questionable ones on how far the signal reaches.  The hole in which we're doing the pig in is probably 300-400 feet from the house

Will do.  You may not find any that will reach that far.  The Meater Plus is supposed to reach approximately 165 feet.

I'm thinking you won't have signal strength to let it connect that far away but, it depends on your wifi strength. One thing you might try is relocating your router temporarily,  if your router is pretty easy to move. There is an option connect through the cloud and that may solve the issue for you, I'm not smart enough to know how that works.

On a semi related note, with the ATT wireless internet and built in wifi, you can just carry the little box out there an plug it in to an extension cord and there is your internet/wifi.

I appreciate it.  We were out at their place and I think what we'll do is dig a new pit closer to his house and well within wifi range.  They live out in the country so it's not a big deal.  Make it easier to drink and shoot the breeze while the pig cooks.
