Smoking meat might seem like a simple matter of combining, well, meat and smoke, but Traeger’s range of connected grills are now adding Alexa support for more straightforward remote control.Owners of Traeger WiFIRE-enabled models will be able to use Amazon’s assistant both to control their pellet grill and to remotely check its current status.While that might sound excessive, it’s actually one of the more potentially useful applications for Alexa that we’ve seen.Traeger’s app does allow for remotely monitoring grill temperature, probe temperature, and other settings, as well as adjusting them.However if you just want to check how close your beef brisket or pork shoulder are to their target temperature, calling out “Alexa, how hot is the food in the grille?” and getting a spoken response could well be quicker.Other Alexa commands supported include turning the grill off, checking whether it’s on or off, checking or changing the temperature of the grill, and setting the probe target temperature.
