Smoke Gateway Initial Impressions

Recommended Posts

The Smoke Gateway arrived today and I can't wait to take it on its first official cook of an overnight Boston Butt tomorrow night. It was easy to pair up. I have the app installed on both my Andriod phone and iPad. Interesting to see the slight differences but nothing too drastic. If you put the app on multiple devices an update on one updates all. Only negative comment I have is I don't understand why they went with the old mini USB charger connection. That said if it really holds 100 hours between charges I can live with that. In my particular set up there is a considerable separation between my cookers, the Gateway and my router but in my testing tonight they all maintained connectivity without a problem.

App keeps crashing on my Andriod phone, have not been able to get it linked all the way though. 

It was a problem with my wireless router, changed it out to a spare I have and everything connects and works great. 

Now to smoke something with it.

Mind arrived yesterday, and i'm just now playing with it today on my tablet.

 

I too wondered about the mini USB vs the micro.  while older and a bit larger, perhaps it's better/strong connection?

The other thing that I found a little quirky about it is that the alarms have to be set in the app itself rather than being pushed from the Smoke. Not a big deal but a bit of a surprise. I'm doing my first cook with it tonight and will be interested to see how it works over a long period of time. So far I'm liking what I see.
