From smoked tofu to fried seitan
From the grill to the smoker to the oven, the thermometer and its probes can be used in a wide variety of scenarios. Even frozen food to be grilled or chilled smoked food can already be equipped with the temperature sensor, which can be used down to -20°C or even down to -30°C for a short time. In addition to the food to be smoked, grilled or cooked, you can also measure the air temperature in the corresponding device. Two clamps are included for this purpose, which can be attached to the grill or oven grate. If a probe is passed through there, the measuring tip hovers in the air and precisely measures the temperature.
Up to six probes can be connected to the BBQ thermometer at the same time, simply with a cable and plug. They are then automatically recognized and shown on the display. If a smartphone is connected and the Inkbird app is used, the data can also be conveniently read from the mobile device. So you can do other things around the house or prepare the party. High and low temperature alarms can be set up to notify you if the treat being prepared gets too hot or too cold. In addition to barbecuing, which is becoming less with the dwindling summer, the whole thing is also conceivable when using the oven.
Notes on the required app
The app requires registration (an account). It also requires the activation of the smartphone's location services, according to the manufacturer this is necessary for the use of Bluetooth and WLAN. The data including temperature curves of all measurements end up on the Inkbird servers for 30 days when using the app. If you want to see what data is stored, you can request it by email. The IBT-26S has only one power button, so that the full range of functions can only be used with the smartphone app. If this fails or is not updated further, the thermometer loses its possible uses.
