Then using your app, choose the type of meat, cut and the doneness. The app will show the target temperature, the current temperature of the meat and the ambient temperature. Throughout the cooking, you will receive alerts. The Meater+ Smart Thermometer must remain in the meat while it is cooking.
The Meater+ can be used in the BBQ grill, smoker, and oven. The thermometer uses a rechargeable AA battery that charges in its own box. This powerful unit has a range of approximately 165 feet from its case. The case acts as a signal repeater to help extend its signal strength, which means you can go anywhere in your property and still get alerts.
