A wireless meat thermometer is a game-changer in the kitchen, especially when precision is key. It’s ideal for tasks like determining when to wrap a brisket, and ensuring it’s cooked to tender perfection without constant monitoring. A wireless grill thermometer simplifies and streamlines your grilling experience, offering the convenience of monitoring temperatures from a distance. This reduces stress and allows for more relaxed cooking.
The landscape of meat thermometers underwent a significant transformation with the introduction of smart meat thermometers. These advanced devices employ Bluetooth technology to send real-time cooking data from a probe directly to your phone via a dedicated app. In our evaluation, we put four popular models through their paces to verify if they truly live up to their claims of consistently perfect culinary results.
Best Overall: Typhur Sync Bluetooth and WiFi Meat Thermometer
Typhur Sync Wireless Thermometer seamlessly combines two 6-sensor probes and a base station with a 2.4-inch display, Bluetooth 5.4, and built-in Wi-Fi for accurate and reliable wireless temperature monitoring, with or without a mobile app.
First up, the Typhur Sync wireless meat thermometer boasts some seriously nifty alert features. It’ll ping you not just when your food is ready but also if the ambient temperature in your grill dips too low (super handy for when you need to tweak the dampers or toss in more charcoal). Plus, when it’s time to end the resting period for your meat, the app chimes in again with a heads-up.
It’s worth mentioning that in our tests, the Typhur Sync’s connection was incredibly stable, outperforming every other wireless thermometer we’ve tried. Its Bluetooth 5.4 connection ensures accurate temperature readings over long distances – that’s up to 400 feet in open areas with a few obstacles and 65 feet in more closed-off spaces.

ThermoPro TP20 Wireless Meat Thermometer
With a large selection of models, ThermoPro is a reputable brand in meat thermometers. With its two probes and 300-foot wireless range, the TP20 allows you to keep an eye on the steaks and chops even when you’re far from the grill. You can read the large LCD screens on the base and remote in low light thanks to their backlighting, and the device comes with a wireless remote and base unit, eliminating the need for you to download an app to your phone. With presets for nine different types of meat based on USDA recommendations, the TP20 has a temperature range of 32 to 572 degrees Fahrenheit.
ThermoPro TempSpike Wireless Meat Thermometer
ThermoPro’s latest wireless probe thermometer boasts the most sophisticated Bluetooth technology and can transmit internal temperature readings up to 500 feet to your smartphone. It communicates with the ThermoPro app, which offers preset cooking temperatures for beef, ground beef, poultry, ground poultry, turkey, pork, lamb, veal, and fish, as well as a customisable 24-hour timer and alarms for cooking and ambient temperature. The ThermoPro TempSpike has many excellent features, including a very flexible app and a wide range.
ThermoPro TP 25 4 Probe Remote Meat Thermometer
This app-forward paradigm gets an upgrade thanks to four color-coded probes. The app has a lot of data, but it’s not the best model for people who don’t want to grill multiple cuts of meat at once or for people who want a phone-free option. With the help of an intelligent app that meets your demands, prepare meals to your tastes. Set your temperature range for high and low, and be aware of when to top off the tank with gas. After you cross the 500-foot gearbox limit, get a notification.
Wireless meat thermometers acknowledge goodness and provide some relief from the oppressive power of these cookers, letting you leave, handle other chores, or even take a nap while cooking all night. In the days before wireless thermometers became common, using a probe thermometer to check the progress or lack thereof of your long-cooking food meant opening your cooker to check on it.
