Has anyone ever heard of one?

I've started doing long time smoking of meats. Briskets and pork shoulders to name a few. Smoking times over 12 hours. I would love to have my computer alert me when either the meat or bbq temp goes over/under a set temperature range.

I don't believe the animal you are looking for exists. You can get one like this will do the same thing but not through your PC.

I guess I can aim a webcam at the readout and check the temp by phone. I don't mind being near the smoker for 3-4 hours but 12+ hours? I'd go nuts.

Thanks!

well you don't really need to sit there. You have to figure it out, but for me it normally takes about 1.5 hours before I need to add more wood to my smoker. I just used my smoker yesterday, I smelled like a fireplace all day lol. Mmmmmm love me some smoked pork butt. om nom nom nom

I smoke mine for 3 - 4 hours then finish it in the oven. =) but I have a ghetto smoker

it can even control you smoke with the correct adapter kit.
