  1. I know the OP mentioned this already but I too have been a Thermoworks fan for a while but am seriously disappointed in their app. Which to me is a important part of a temp controler.
  2. Dude you're killing me. I bought a Smoke about the same time you did...
  3. If you are kind of on the fence I would suggest getting an Akorn. Low entry point for a great Kamado. It will surely last you 4-5 years and if you're still in love with it when the dome falls off go get a KJ9 or whatever is out by then.
  4. They look great, I still haven't done Pizza but it is high on my list.
  5. I am laughing hard at this... I would totally say something just like it. Don't do it for you, do it for your family. You really don't have a choice.
  6. I have one and until the latest firmware update I really hated it. Since the upgrade it has been rock solid. The app is garbage from a UX standpoint but it does function once you get the hang of it. I also can confirm their phone tech support is great.
  7. Agree 100%... Signals wasn't out when I got my Smoke, it was released like 3 months after.
  8. I have a Coleman RoadTrip https://www.walmart.com/ip/Coleman-RoadTrip-X-Cursion-2-Burner-Propane-Gas-Portable-Grill-Camping-Stove/50093318?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=0&adid=22222222227037652184&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=92174809337&wl4=aud-834279575926:pla-183834466577&wl5=9003018&wl6=&wl7=&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=8175035&wl11=online&wl12=50093318&veh=sem&gclid=CjwKCAiAyeTxBRBvEiwAuM8dnZ0Ms6SMkfjPmevCKz_Ak1hfePByIx1PSdMg2ReObWIqNDJW06oLFxoCIwEQAvD_BwE Its great but I literally haven't used it since I got my Akorn Jr... I swear the Jr heats up just a quickly. The only draw back I can see is cool down time. I actually hate the Coleman if there is any wind at all.
  9. I really like my Smoke, the wifi gateway is a little clunky. Just upgraded the firmware which is supposed to fix a lot of issues. Unless I'm leaving the house I don't even bother to turn the gateway on. I use the remote that came with it. Spec is 300' but I've found it reaches further than that. I bet 99% of the time I just want to monitor from the house and its great for that.
  10. Thanks for the reply's guys! I was keeping my top damper almost totally closed. Just a sliver of the half moon showing I didn't open the lid once. I had my ThermoWorks Smoke set up so I didn't have to check until the very end. I read on the web site to let the controller bring the pit up to temp which I did NOT do. I let it run wide open with the lid open for 10 mins, then set both vents on #2 to let it come up to temp slow, then when the ambient probe said 200 I engaged the controller. I'm curious to try the ring of fire method to see if its' any different. I don't think I have an issue with my Charcoal cause its super cold and dry in Vermont right now. I can't imagine there is any humidity to be found. Also I had the damper on the IQ set at #1. I have read a few thread about people taping over a few of the vents to choke it down even more... I might try that as well.
  11. Hey Team, I just got my first temperature controler, a Pitmaster 110IQ. I am cooking a butt right now and I'm a little all over the place temp wise. She's swinging between 220 and 270, which technically I don't care about cause I've cooked in that range and had good success but I feel like it should be able to hold a more consistent temp. I mean I think I can hold better WITHOUT this controller at this point. I'm using lump, with the top vent between 0-1 and the damper on the IQ at the #1 setting. Thoughts?
  12. Im glad I stumbled across this. I have been on the fence for a while but I will probably put it on the list now. Thanks for the review!
  13. Thanks man, appreciate the info... I bought some Ribeye's today
  14. Hey Guys, I got an Anova SV for Christmas and I'm excited to try it out! My wife is a cancer survivor and so we are a little over sensitive with stuff like chemicals leaching into our food. There is a ton of conflicting info out there online but I figured I'd post the topic on here cause I trust this forum to be a pretty balanced set of people. Let me know what you think? I don't have a vacuum sealer so my plan was to just use ZipLock brand freezer bags... Thanks
