    I will comment again on this once i get a chance to do some side by side testing with my current dual probe thermometer.

          I've been following the effort and agree it looks amazing. However, it is really, really, late. When you get yours, I'd love a quick review, as if it can do what they say, I'm happy to buy.

            Never heard of it before but I just looked at their campaign page. Is it just me or does this thing have scam written all over it? Just reading the comments and the answers provided by the company raised a huge red flag for me. Has anyone actually received one yet, even a beta model?

                As a tech journalist, I follow plenty of these, and, so far at least, it doesn't look like a scam. "Just" some inventors who had a great idea, got lots of money via crowd sourcing, and now have discovered it is really, really, hard. However, the updates from many of these companies sound the same. Chronically upbeat, but sweeping massive issues and delays under the rug. I with there was more straight shooting, but I guess the rosy outlook goes with the territory. If only they would say something believable, like "OMG, the plastic melted, we need to find a new material", or "Who knew that there were regulations on thermometers?" or whatever the issue was, instead of "gosh, our prototypes are doing really well and we continue working towards volume production."

                    Well with close to 4 million from investors when it does hit the street and get wrung out by the investors its should be great. That will be my entry point to perfectly cooked meat for sure.

                      I backed it (as did other people here), but I was conservative - $1 so I could read all the backer only updates (I was burned by a tech scam and I blame myself for backing that one, at least I could chargeback). It looks promising, I'm just waiting until it ships and is reviewed before I fully commit.

                          Yes, WiFi. And if you buy the $169 level with 4 probes, the storage box is also a charger and a WiFi bridge to extend your range. Plus you can connect into your home's WiFi, much easier than having to directly connect your phone or tablet. Plus some cloud apps.

                          The thermometers themselves are Bluetooth and can be monitored by your phone/tablet when in range. You also would need the Meater Block to connect them to WiFi and monitor them elsewhere.

                      The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                      the good one grill

                      The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
