Grill Alert Talking Remote Meat Thermometer
No, your dad doesn't "need a hand with the grill." He knows exactly how long to cook that flank steak until it's as firm as the inside of his palm. He knows exactly when to lift the hood on that grill, and the answer is always "not yet." On Fathers Day, however, dad can feel just a bit besieged in his outdoor kitchen. It's his day and everybody wants a conversation with him, but nobody can leave him alone long enough to keep track of the meat they wanted cooked to order. And you know who's going to catch hell about overdone, hockey-puck steaks every Fathers Day after this one? Not the folks turning his grill session into an episode of
Inside The Actor's Studio.
This wireless receiver not only keeps track of preparation time by meat type, but will adjust for rare, medium-rare, medium or well-done. It'll also tell dad when his grillables are almost ready or ready.
