Object of Lust 8: The Gift for the Person with Everything? The iGrill

If it keeps up, man will atrophy all his limbs but the push-button finger. – Frank Lloyd Wright

So here's an unusual product for the barbecue fanatic and techno-geek in your family. The iGrill, manufactured by iDevies of the USA, is a nifty little invention that keeps track of the temperature of up to two different meats on your grill. It comes as a piece of hardware and an app for tracking it on your iPhone, iPad or iPad touch.

Simply set the device up next to your barbecue (at a safe distance), stick the probe(s) into the meat, set your desired internal temperature and you can monitor the progress from up to 200' away on your iPhone, etc. via Bluetooth®. It will also alert you via your Bluetooth® device when the meat is done.

If you don't have an iPhone, or iPad that's OK too, as it will act as a stand alone thermometer in the old fashioned sense. 

So bring your friends over to your backyard and party it up, knowing you are safe in the knowledge that your iGrill will track the progress of your dinner and let you know with certainty when it is cooked to perfection.

Out of the package with one probe, you can purchase a second probe, and the software and app will track the temperature of both cooking items separately, at your desired settings.

It also can be purchase in either black or white, to match your iPhone or iPad.
