Good wireless thermo?

Fairly new to my MBGE & doing my 2nd slow & low butt while also working from home.  Getting to be a bit annoying running outside every hour to check dome temp.  I know there are wireless thermos that can monitor dome, grid temp, and have multiple probes for meat.  What's everyone's favorite?  Does anyone use the iPhone app?  

My 6 y.o. daughter named my MBGE Shrek, because it is big, green & it burps.

    It's all up to your budget, but the maverick wireless thermometer is fine with me. I splurged and got the one with the BGE stamp just for the name.

    If your budget allows, I would look at the Stoker.

    Depending upon your distance needs and budget, consider this:

    Thermoworks is high quality stuff.  I have a maverick and it works ok.

    used to use the maverick but now during low and slows where i dont want to go outside during the cook i just rotate the egg so i can see the dome therm from the window
    :D if you turn the therm so the needle points straight up at temp you can see it from along ways away

    Got my Maverick 732 a few weeks ago and wish I had bought it sooner. I used to set my alarm for every 2 hours on overnight cooks just to go see the egg was stable most of the time. Now I can get a great nights sleep and only need to check if something goes wrong. I also work from home and can't see my deck from my office.

    I'm a big fan of my Mav ET-732.

    Very dependable.

    Thanks guys, bought the Mav 732.  The others look nice but I'm on a budget...

    I set my egg and go to bed. When I wake up the temp is always within 25 deg or so of when I left it. I would like a remote thermometer but for me I do not see the need.

    @Shrek Good choice. I considered a temp controller bit it felt too much like cheating.

    For the $s the Maverick is decent.

    Just heard today a model ET-733 is expected to be released in late October and have a larger display on the remote and allow for setting alarms up or down.
