Features & Specification

The Tappecue Wireless Remote WIFI Barbecue Thermometer is the ultimate thermometer for those that need to monitor their cook from a variety of locations. 

Have you spent a ton of time, effort and money on wireless thermometers only to have them fail to stay connected or not be able to read them from inside your house? The team at Tappecue has taken care of this problem for you. This unique, and ground breaking, cloud system utilizes WIFI, which is a far more robust technology than radio or bluetooth for remotely monitoring your cooks.

You have no limitations with the Tappecue, simply monitor your cook from anywhere you have an internet connection. You can spend more time with the family, and less time checking on your smoker of the food inside of it, because you will always know exactly what temperature you are at at a quick glance.

The Tappecue Wireless Remote WIFI Barbecue Thermometer system includes four 6’ meat temperature probes, a USB cord and power supply + a FREE subscription to the Tappecue Cloud and Mobile App.

FEATURES

  • Monitor your cooks from multiple devices at once (desktop, mobile phones and more)
  • Mini USB power inlet allows the use of commonly available USB batteries to run your unit for hours
  • In app graphing allows you to see your cook graphed out over time
  • Your session history is emailed to you after the cook, so you can analyze past cooks to improve your food

Update on the Tappecue 3.0 system I reviewed earlier
UPDATE: I have been using this system pretty much every day since I got it, especially on my Yoder YS640. Everything from butts to beaks, this system has been invaluable and very effective even after the cumbersome setup and clunky initial interface. It's expensive, but for an avid BBQer, it's absolutely worth getting. One thing that annoyed the cr@p out of me was the constant dropping off of the wifi, and last week I ran into an Army buddy (electronic type), and he logged into my router. Apparently my wifi was set to pure wifi N, which meant that if one of my family was on with their iPhone, the system immediately dropped off the Tappecue, because it is using G protocol. On resetting the router and access points to "auto"" (a/b/g/n), the Tappecue has been stable as a rock. I had a pork shoulder in the Yoder YS640 last night - low and slow at 225°F - and around 10pm, the darned thing dropped off the network again. Come to find out that the whole area my town is in had an internet outage, so this time it wasn't the unit, it was Mr Murphy. I just can't win.

Bottom line - a great product, very easy to use once set up and absolutely one of my essential tools. I have also purchased an inverter power supply and I'm working on getting a motor home, because retirement from the Army is coming fast, and I want to start competing as well as doing the odd catering I do. AIRBORNE!

Tappecue makes temp reading over the Internet easy
Pros: Four probes, great iPhone/iPad app, easy parameter creation and alteration, excellent with the Yoder YS640 ports
Cons: Clunky interface on Windows, amateurish but workable GUI, counterintuitive set up process
I saw this being used by a fellow Smoking Meat reader and colleague at a local gathering. We were collaborating on the smoking, me with my Traeger Li'l Tex, he with his orange cart Yoder YS640. I was using my Maverick, he was using the Tappecue. Oh, how I envied him the freedom of eating in the nearby town and being able to simply look at his iPad. As soon as I could, I got home, fired up the Samsung lappie and ordered it. Three days later I had this mysterious black box with power supply, USB cord, and about seventy probes! Well, four, actually, but you get the idea. Went to Tappecue's web site, registered my user name and password (easy), downloaded the setup installer, and as soon as my virus checker had stopped sniffing it's software tail, unzipped it to my desk top and followed the website's instructions obsessively. First try, the installer gagged on some file and blew up. Having played with Windows a lot, I deleted all the downloaded installer versions, including the downloaded zip file, and rebooted my computer. Downloaded the file again. This time, the install was perfect. So, corrupted file from the web, it happens. Plugged in the USB to the black box, lifted the antenna, plugged the USB into the computer, then plugged the the power into the Tappecue. Fascination - lots of blinking lights, then the Windows chime for found new equipment, then on the Tappecue ... 'Connected to PC' !! Excellent! Fired up the configuration app, and logged in, named my Tappecue appropriately, then proceeded to the WiFi set up. Here is where things got a little frustrating. I entered the first five letters of my network, and the drop down menu on the first box filled in the rest. I selected the appropriate button, and WPS2 (correct) loaded. Selecting the next button should have been to allow me to enter the password, but it hung up. After about 10 minutes, I shut the Tappecue down, disconnected it, rebooted my laptop, reattached and repowered the Tappecue, and began again. This time, I got to the WPS2, and loaded the password for my network. Again, it hung, so third time, I deleted the installer, the setup program and all files, did a third install, reloaded the setup and made it all the way through. Success - there, on my wifi list of users, was my Tappecue. Fired up my brand new Yoder YS640, loaded 2 St Louis rib racks, plugged in three Tappecue meat probes and swung the fourth over the middle as an ambient, and fired up the iPhone app. TA DAH! All four probes, one pit, three meat, changed the parameters easily, and cooked the ribs for three hours before wrapping and unloading. My Maverick is forgotten, I am in love, this newest Tappecue is awesome and the ribs were awesomely awesome!
