DEFINE YOUR BUDGET
A thermometer for every price
We could recommend the best and most expensive, but if your budget doesn’t allow it, it’s a waste of time. We make you happy with all the nice features, but when the price comes, you drop out. So first determine what you want to spend, and based on your budget, start looking for the right thermometer for your bbq
Cheap and effective
The cheapest solution is the analogue meter, a kind of clock with which you can measure the core temperature of your dish. You insert the metal pin into your meat, wait a few seconds for the gauge to come to a virtual standstill and read the temperature.
DIGITAL PEN THERMOMETER
Accurate and fast
The digital pen thermometer is quick and effective, you just stick it in your dish like the analogue meter, and within seconds you know how your dish is doing. Having said that, this temperature gauge is less suitable for long low and slow cooking. To know the knowledge temperature you have to open the lid of your kamado bbq, and so you lose heat every time.
BLUETOOTH DIGITAL THERMOMETER
In the land of bluetooth thermometers, there’s quite a bit out there. Why would you get a bleutooth meter?

A wifi thermometer is therefore a handy tool that helps you to perfect your bbq preparations. There are even wifi thermometers with a fan that allow you to not only measure the temperature, but also control it.
