Back in the old days, you rubbed flint, got a spark and started a fire. Fortunately, life has improved over the last million years. Now we can cook food in ovens or grills and know Precisely what temperature the food is. And you don’t have to poke your head in the fire to do it! Insert the probe wire in the food. Program the remote with the type of meat (if that’s what you are cooking), the level of “doneness” – well, rare, and so on. Wait for the beep. You can be up to 100 feet away from the grill – maybe getting that giant barrel of draft beer from out of the basement.
