Hey gang, I recently received my iKamand, and it works great.  I’m not able to find anyone selling extra probes for the unit for slot 2 and 3.  Has anyone had any luck?

 

Also, while I’m on the topic of iKamand, has anyone had success getting a DC to USB setup to work, so a cord doesn’t have to be drug across the patio?  The idea would be to use it with a usb battery back or something similar.

 

I left some pics to get your mouths watering while I wait for a response.

Probes are coming, no word on when or how much they'll be, but AGS has said they're due soon-ish

As for battery, I've seen a few guys on facebook post pictures cell phone battery packs running their iKamand, so it can be done

I suppose you could cobble some sort of USB 5VDC to 12VDC conversion together, but wouldn't it be smarter and simpler to just buy a 12VDC battery pack and use that without mucking around? 

 

This unit has been shown to run the iKamand for 14hrs.  https://www.amazon.com/XTPower-MP-10000-External-10000mAh-included/dp/B00935L44E/

 

As mentioned, additional probes are expected "real soon now"...

I cobbled together a $10 5 V to 12 V USB adapter from amazon and a $21 30,000 mah battery to run my iKAMAND. The battery has way more capacity than I need.

Cool.  Good to have a starting point that's known to work. 

 

I hadn't been aware that 5VDC to 12VDC upconverters were so common, learn something new every day.

 

I'd looked for USBC powerbanks that provided 12VDC but was unsuccessful; now knowing that the upconverters are common that makes things nicer since I can dual-purpose a battery pack.

 

Thanks.

      New to the forum and this would be my first post.  I recently purchase the KJ Classic Joe 3, and was hoping to find some plans to build a grill table.  I've done some searches, but I'm not sure if any of them would accommodate the Classic Joe 3.  If someone could point me in the right direction, I definitely would appreciate it.  Thank you in advance.

      Ok so I started my first pork butt cook with a pit temp of 275.  It is a 8 pound bone in pork but.  After 2 hours the internal meat temp is already 124!?!  Is this normal?  I was thinking at 275 I was looking at about an hour a pound?  I backed the pit down to 250.  Should I be worried or am I over thinking this?
