  1. I have 1.0.54 in mine, and I believe it is the most recent version.
  2. I have the iKamand v2 and I am happy with it. It gets the job done, nothing more nothing less.
  3. Probably faulty iKamand device or probes. If I recall correctly I read about someone having the same issue and got new probes under warranty, which resolved the issue.
  4. At which step are you failing in this guide? How far can you get before it fails? https://ikamand.freshdesk.com/support/solutions/articles/36000034184-how-to-connect-your-ikamand-to-the-internet-and-your-account
  5. I got myself an iKamand to deal with it, no such problem anymore.
  6. Thanks! Then everything is as it should! I was using it today again and there was more ambient noise today, so I really had to listen close to the motor to be able to hear it. When I first noticed it it was a quiet day. Thanks for your helpful reply!
  7. Here is a side by side comparision from my setup. The Weber iGrill is showing a slightly lower pit temp reading than the iKamand, but nothing that I have really worried about. Could be due to the placement of the probes, calibration and accuracy of course. Nothing I would care about as it is only a couple degrees. In the end I always check the meat temp in a couple of spots with an instant read probe anyway. And in the end they both display about the same temp as can be seen from the graph. Prior to getting the iKamand I used to cook based on the dome temp alone, manually adjusted the air flow as needed, and cooks still turned out fine most of the time. Results are more consistent with the iKamand though, and I haven’t failed a cook since I got it. One error in my notes in the image, in the end I cranked the target temp up to 170C and not 150C.
  8. One more question, is your top vent just about closed? The pit temp seems to overshoot quite a bit! So you only open the lid once around 5:09, correct?

    I would not be too happy about that on a new grill! I would return it!
  10. Go with the Masterbuilt instead of the Jr. Sooner or later you will want accessories, and here is where the Jr is lacking. Also compare prices with a KJ Classic 1 as you will probably want to get the Divide and Conquer cooking rack for the Masterbuilt. It is included with the KJ Classic
  11. Have had a Joetisserie for a month or so, and last time I used it I heard a periodic ticking sound from the motor. Can’t remember if it was there initially or not when I first got it, as I was too busy grilling and didn’t really hear anything unusual. Anyone else have this sound?
  12. Sorry to hear! The great KJ customer service reputition was one of the biggest reasons that made me purchase a KJ over any other Kamado brand. I googled a lot before I made the purchase of 2 KJs. Based on what I read these days I am not sure that I would have made the same choice today. Still happy with my grills, but this is hurting the KJ brand.
  13. I have the iKamand v2 and I have never had that lid open problem you see. How does the grate temp graph look in the app? The iKamand detect that the lid is open if the there is a rapid decrease in temperature. Do you see any drops in the temp readings? About your other problem, how much is the difference between the Thermoworks and iKamand readings? I have a Weber iGrill as well, and I also see a difference. But then again I don’t which one is the must accurate one, and I really don’t stress too much about it as long as my cooks turn out the way I want.
  14. Thanks for your reply! I will give the volcano/minion fire lay a try later today!
  15. That’s quite some pack of baby back ribs! Nothing like the ribs found here in Europe where we have much less meat on the ribs. Sure does look tasty!
