If you’re serious about grilling, using a smoker or roasting, you know the importance of temperature. You also know opening the grill or smoker lets all that beautiful flavor out and can lead to uneven cooking.
That’s where Bluetooth Thermometers come in handy, allowing you to take the temperature of your meat without opening your grill or smoker.
We’ve analyzed every Bluetooth BBQ Thermometer in the market, compared all their features, prices and customer reviews to give you our list of the best bluetooth meat thermometers of 2019.
Choosing a Bluetooth Meat Thermometer
Bluetooth meat thermometers can differ significantly from unit to unit. We’ve outlined the key features to consider before selecting the right bluetooth thermometer for your needs.
Different thermometers can offer a range of between 75ft all the way to 400ft. This makes a huge difference depending on how your setup. Consider where you spend most of your time in the house, and how far that is to your grill or smoker and your kitchen.
Mobile App or Stand-Alone LCD Display
Not all Bluetooth meat thermometers have an app that connects to your phone. Bluetooth is used to to transmit the temperature from the probe to a stand-alone LCD display.
It’s a cool feature to get temperature readouts on your phone, and it’s one less gadget you might lose.
Number of Probes
Buying a bluetooth thermometer with multiple probes allows you to measure the temperature of different pieces of food, ensuring everything is perfectly cooked. We think it makes sense to opt for a unit that has at least 2 probes.
Some thermometers are more accurate than others, however most are usually accurate up to 2.0°F, so it’s the least important factor. The reality is, a 2 degree difference doesn’t really change much in most cases.
If the pursuit of perfection is important to you, go ahead and find the most accurate thermometer available.

Premium Choice: MEATER+ Smart Meat Thermometer
If you love the latest and greatest in tech, you’re in luck: even meat thermometers can be beautifully designed.
Nearly all the other thermometers on our list are not 100% wire-free, usually there is a wire from the probe to the Bluetooth transmitter. Not in this case!
This baby has 165ft range, allowing you to monitor your grill or smoker from almost anywhere.
Each probe has two sensors, allowing you to measure both the internal meat temperature and the ambient temperature inside the grill.
The app even includes guides on how to cook your meat perfectly, and has the ability to estimate how long until it’s done.
If you settle for nothing but the best, then the MEATER+ Bluetooth meat thermometer is for you.
Best Seller: Soraken Bluetooth Meat Thermometer
There’s a reason the Soraken Bluetooth meat thermometer is the most popular in the market: it offers the best value.
This unit comes with an impressive 4 probes that can monitor simultaneously, the most you will find at this price point.
It has an impressive 170ft range outdoors and 100ft indoors, making it one of the top performers in this category.
It is feature rich with preset temperature alerts, notifying you as soon as your meat has reached the ideal temperature.
It comes with both an external LCD display as well as the ability to monitor on iOS and Android.
If you want the best value and the ability to monitor multiple pieces of meat simultaneously, you can’t go wrong with the Soraken Bluetooth meat thermometer.
Budget Pick: Nutrichef Smart Bluetooth BBQ Thermometer
If you just’re looking for a cheap Bluetooth thermometer, but still want good quality, opt for the Nutrichef smart Bluetooth thermometer.
It is both one of the lowest priced and most highly rated thermometers on the market today.
While only a single probe, it does offer the important features people are looking for: Bluetooth compatability with smart alerts.
We were unable to determine the range during the course of our research, so we advise to assume the range is on the lower end, likely 50ft or less.
There is no external display and as such an Android or iOS device is required.
If you want a cheap thermometer for those rare occasions, then we recommend the Nutrichef Smart Bluetooth thermometer.
While it didn’t make our top 3, the uvistare Bluetooth meat thermometer is worth consideration.
It is competitively priced and highly rated, with the ability to monitor up to 6 probes simultaneously, although the package only comes with two probes.
For that reason, given that it is priced similarly to the Soraken, it did not make our top 3 as the best value.
Still, it comes with an attractive LED display, mobile app support and a 2 year replacement guarantee.
If you want a splash of orange swag and peace of mind with a two year warranty, then treat yourself to this beautiful backyard toy.
We have to admit it was a very close call between the Inkbird Thermometer and the MEATER+, our #1 pick for the best Bluetooth meat thermometer.
This thermometer almost has it all… except mobile app support!
It is competitively priced at the mid-range in the category, but comes with an impressive 6 probes and a rechargeable battery.
It’s range is also nothing to sneeze at: coming in at 150ft outdoor range.
If you don’t care about mobile app support and just want the most probes for the best price, then go for the Inkbird Bluetooth BBQ Thermometer.
