BBQGuru CyberQ WiFi
BBQ Guru's CyberQ WiFi improves on the original DigiQ by including a built-in web server that allows you to access the device's controls and status via a Wi-Fi connection. Additionally, the CyberQ WiFi can remotely monitor the temperature of up to three different meats using probe sensors.
The CyberQ WiFi is also supported by various third-party applications such as Wedonet's WiFi Windows Controller, as well as The Pit Pal on Android, if you want to get historical charts of your cooking session for real-time monitoring of pit and food temperatures on your mobile devices.
A full CyberQ setup with controller, blower fan, and adapter to match your smoker costs about $400. I use this system personally, and if you're extremely serious about getting consistent results when doing BBQ smoking, as well as being able to walk away for several hours and monitor the progress of your cook remotely, this is a must-have product.
Weber 1351001 One-Touch Gold Kettle Grill, 22-Inch, Black
When it comes to charcoal grilling, nothing beats the classic Weber. The original and iconic Kettle, which has been in production since 1951, is made out of heavy gauge porcelain enamelled steel, and is the ultimate in simplicity. The Gold model has a One-Touch cleaning and venting system that allows you to empty the ash in seconds without getting your hands dirty.
Weber Genesis Gas and LP Grills
If Gas grills are more your speed, Weber is still your best choice. There are much more expensive grills on the market than the Genesis series, but you're not going to find one as well built and higher performing for the money.
The gas version of the Genesis was the first grill I ever bought, and after 10 years of enduring the rain and the cold of New Jersey, the only reason why I stopped using it was that I moved to Florida, where I immediately bought a Liquid Propane version of the same model.
The current model's electric ignition three-burner Genesis has a total surface cooking area of 637 square inches and a burner input of over 38,000 BTU per hour.
The Genesis comes in a variety of models for Liquid Propane (LP) and for natural gas, in different configurations, which also include side burners for boiling water, and cooking chilis and BBQ sauces.
