It’s the long weekend and as winter gets nearer it may be one of your last chances to use you BBQ for quite a while.

Tech guru Vaughn Davis joined Paul Henry with his top BBQ gadgets courtesy of Outdoor Concepts in Auckland.

Looflighter - $129

Like a nuclear powered hairdryer. It blows super hot air over an element to ignite your charcoal barbecue.

iGrill - Current model $40-$100 on Amazon

It’s a remote meat thermometer for your iphone.

The probe goes into meat & connects to a transmitter and the temperature gets displayed on your phone as a number and graph. Your phone beeps when the meat is almost done and again when it’s ready.

Infrared thermometer - $109

An industrial gadget that you aim from a distance to measure temperature.

Great for pizza ovens, sick children or anything you don’t want to get out of your chair for.

Flame boss smoker controller - $699

For slow-cook charcoal barbecues, it also includes a meat temperature probe and connects to your phone.

It’s a thermostat powered fan that keeps the temperature just right for 10-15 hour cooks.
