If you fancy yourself a high-tech Pit Master, and find that iDevice's iGrill is just a bit too large for your liking, they have announced that their new, smaller product, the iGrillmini, will be released sometime next year. It's a Bluetooth meat thermometer.
The new iGrillmini is similar to the original iGrill in that is uses wireless Bluetooth technology to communicate with an app that you can download for your iOS or Android devices. It lets you set and monitor meat temperature, set alarms for when the food is ready, monitor multiple probes and also allows things like Facebook sharing through the app. The device can also be used stand-alone without the app.

You should probably know that while the device can be used to monitor temperatures in an oven by feeding the cable out the oven door, you can't just pop the whole thing in the oven.
