I forgot to give stars. I would give 10 stars if allowed.
I have been smoking for about 8 years and I wish I had found fireboard earlier. Before, I used Maverick, Ispot, apple, and a few other wireless. I had trouble with all. Bluetooth could go out of range easily causing overdone or burnt food. Probes were not accurate. Switching to fireboard was great. I can leave town and still know my food and grill temp. The buttons could be easier to press, and it could be more weather resistant. But I love it.
I recently purchased a Fireboard 2 with accessories and could not be happier. I purchased the unit to expand the sensor capability of the Fireboard unit built into my new Yoder Smoker YS640.
Connection to both Bluetooth and WiFi were quick and the sensor readings meshed seamlessly with my smoker probe readings in the Fireboard App. I really like the app’s functionality and appreciate the immediate integration. I highly recommend Fireboard products every chance I get. Thanks for a great product !
Fantastic product! Could not be happier with my Fireboard 2 Drive, it has been an absolute game changer for me, allowing unattended overnight cooks and great temperature control I could never pull off before. Solid product, amazing features, wifi works great. It also goes through the internet, I can go to the store and still check my grill and meat temps through the Fireboard app, it seamlessly transfers from home wifi to internet over cell when I leave my wifi range. Wish I had bought one sooner. If I ever lose or break this device I will replace it with another Fireboard device. Bonus: Made in USA
Have been a user of FireBoard 1 for a few years and love it. Jumped at this because it has many of the same features, but also is an instant read. Simpler to set up for a single probe use like cooking steaks. Tried it for the first time cooking steaks in an M16 MGrill. Used a plug-in probe to monitor temp with the thermometer providing a large, clear display. As the steaks got closer to being done I used the folding probe to sample the other steaks. Very convenient. Only issue us when I first plugged the probe in it took a while to register on the display.
Like the Spark a lot as an instant read thermometer. A little bigger and heavier than a Thermapen, but also a more substantial product. Has an aluminum frame and better display. Only complaint is the user menu is not intuitive to use.
