It was only afew days ago that we hought we'd found the ultimate barbecue tool with the "Redi-Chek Remote Thermometer," which monitors your culinary feats wirelessly from up to 100 feet away while you watch TV. How wrong we were.
Oregon Scientific has weighed in with a wireless version of its own that monitors your steaks from a distance up to 330 feet so you can even see the game on the neighbor's new plasma. But here's the real kicker: It talks to you. The "Grill Right" thermometer can "verbally alert you" in five languages when the meat is cooked to specification.
Not only that, but for the barbecue-challenged among us, the handheld unit's LCD screen will display a picture of the type of animal that's been dispatched for the grill, along with a wealth of other information. As they say on generic infomercials (redundant?), this is one gadget that can suit any lifestyle, whether you're using a George Foreman iGrill or a 24-carat gold-plated BeefEater.
