The ability to monitor how meat is prepared or adjust the temperature from inside the home is also useful additions to SmokeFire grills.
The Weber Connect add-ons are fun, as the temperature sensors connected to a wireless network are a useful grilling tool, especially for new cooks or when working with large steaks.
