Long distance call from Germany

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by all-starsizzler, Feb 28, 2014.

  1. Howdy folks,

    many greetings to this community from the other side of the pond (Germany).

    My name is Tom and I am eager to learn new grilling tips & techniques here in this forum.
    I do own a Weber Q300 with rotisserie and currently I'm working on a project to make my Maverick ET-732 "wifi-ready" by capturing the RF-data between sender unit and receiver unit. My ambitious plan is to display and monitor the temperature readings on my cell phone while a long-job like pulled pork is sizzling on the grill and I am away from home.

    Since I'm not a native English speaker I hope you guys will forgive my orthographic "mishaps". Thanks in advance :biggrin:

    accoutrement of smoking and 'Q.

    The beer, while waiting to peek, for example!

    The smell -  oh yeah!

    That sounds cool. Tons of great info, people, and tips here. You will learn a lot very quickly. Good luck with your project.
  4. Hi, a pulled pork easily needs 20 hours or more. I don't need to hang around there for the full time, meanwhile I can run some errands or so ...
    Regarding beer: I won't miss the fun of drinking while away from home since in my country we are allowed to drink in public, even while driving :cheers:
  5. Thank you sir! Thumbs Up
