So if you’re like me and have been using ThermoWorks products for years for cooking both outside and inside…then you’ve probably always kinda wondered why they hadn’t ever come to the table with a wireless cooking thermometer to compete with a lot of other options on the market (one popular option being the iGrill 2). That’s always been the question in my mind…up until now. The new ThermoWorks Smoke was recently released and it is a 2-channel wireless cooking thermometer that has hit the ground running and has been well received from cooking enthusiasts (like myself). Like many ThermoWorks products, it is simple to both setup and use; it’s constructed of high quality materials that includes a splash-proof design; and there is also an upcoming optional WiFi add-on (called the Smoke Gateway) that will allow you to view your cook from anywhere on a phone or tablet (release date is Spring 2017).
The Smoke is probably one of the hottest cooking tech gadgets to hit the market this year and I instantly love mine. I’ve always loved how well thought out ThermoWorks products are and that is seen again here with the design of the Smoke. This is an excellent gift idea if you’re looking for any last minute cooking ideas. You can purchase one HERE.
I’ve added some comments to the photos below as well as a complete unboxing and review video at the bottom of this post. Thanks for stopping by and please don’t hesitate to let me know if you have any questions in the comments section.
This is a shot of the rear of the base station showing the On/Off, °C/°F, Calibrate and Sync buttons.
The Smoke is 2-channel and comes with 1 ambient air probe and 1 meat probe that connect to side of the base station. You can purchase additional probes if you prefer to monitor 2 pieces of meat or 2 cookers.
The front of the base station has a nice large display with just a few buttons. As I demonstrate in my review video at the bottom of this post, it only takes a few seconds to set up your cook alarms. It also has a nice backlight.
The received feels really good in the hand and has a rubber bevel around it that provides a nice grip. The receiver updates every 15 seconds with data from the base station.
