Test lab notes

Brewing and BBQ have a fair amount in com­mon—both are driven by pas­sion­ate hob­by­ists with a han­ker­ing for some­thing tasty. They also both take hours upon hours and re­quire pre­cise tem­per­a­ture con­trol. That’s of course where the Tappecue comes in. The de­vice lets you track up to 4 tem­per­a­ture probes (fits well in ther­mow­ells, not as ef­fec­tive in the pot or fer­men­tor) with Wifi-based log­ging and no­ti­fi­ca­tions, let­ting you stroll away be­fore get­ting a push no­ti­fi­ca­tion that you’ve hit pre-de­fined tem­per­a­tures. In the mo­ment you can act on that in­for­ma­tion or later down­load a CSV log.

The big­gest down­side of the Tappecue is set­ting it up—the in­ter­face is pretty clunky, and you need both a smart­phone and a com­puter in­volved.
