Now you can grill/smoke from anywhere.

Smartphone controls for your grill/smoker. La-Z-Que has been perfected:

  1. Hi, ferret:


    $295 for the controller, $105 for the fan, and $40 for the adapter... $440 just for the opportunity to screw up remotely? And you still need AC power, right?

    Are these things able to interface with the auger-fed pellet units?


    1. From what I see, it's working over wifi. But is it really "anywhere"?

      If they could develop something that would lower temps, that would be great. I don't think these devices have that ability yet.

      1. Not for BBQ, but this wifi take control of your devices thing has been around for awhile now. You could take control of your TV and DVR via wifi about 5 years ago. I suppose it's just a matter of time and you will be able to cook a meal at home while having a Starbucks and using their wifi. Also been around for a while is the fan for your smoker tied in to the temperature read out. This just ties it all together. I guess I just like to participate in the process a little too much to purchase one of these.
