Meater +
« on: August 13, 2023, 10:15:04 AM »
After a decade of using my trusty Maverick thermometers, I took a shot at a meater plus wireless thermometer because I had an Amazon gift card. 

Curious to know if anyone else has tried one.   My first cook was a little frustrating because it kept losing connection.  The insulation in the Summit is the likely cause.

Iíve had a MEATER+ for almost 3 years and really like it.  Ambient temps arenít always spot on but protein temps are usually pretty close.  For connectionÖ probe to block, block to iPad, iPad to internet, internet to iPhone.  I keep the block next to the grill, my iPad just inside on the dining room table which is not far from my router.  Works perfectly and I can monitor temps anywhere with my phone.

Iíve also had my MEATER+ for 2-3years, and I have the summit Kamado. Iíve really enjoyed it. Not sure if you ever watch smoking dad bbq he has some good tips and tricks for it. I usually always have a device close to the case so it stays on the Wi-Fi and rarely lose my connection

Iím not a fan. I used it a dozen times or so before giving up on it. The ambient pit temp was wildly inaccurate compared to ThermoWorks signals. The meat temp always registered higher so the meat was not done when meater indicated it was. Unless one needs it for rotisserie cooks, I like ThermoWorks products (smoke or signals) much better.

I used my Meater + once and kept losing connection which was very frustrating. I need to give it another chance at home with the set up Bama mentioned. Just canít see using that set up at a BBQ Competition.

Itís not abundantly clear that the base has to stay close to the probe.   For $100 you donít get a user manual.   Itís all electric.  Iím kinda old school.  Iíll actually read the manual.
