SyncModeTM is a powerful mode to track other FireBoard devices using Spark as a display. This powerful feature uses the FireBoard Cloud to transform Spark into a beautiful countertop device, making all your FireBoard temperatures available at a glance.
Love it connected the drive cable to a solid-state relay instead of it working a fan it works my DIY 220 volt electric smoker.
Truly a game changer.
I love every aspect of it. Easy to use. Take notes. Capture pictures. Update the temp.
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
I’ve had my Fireboard 2 Drive for almost 1.5 years now, and it’s a fantastic device.
Sure it’s a bit on the pricy side, but you get so much out of it – more than worth it for me.
It does everything other similarly priced products do, and more.
Battery life is amazing, never had issues with my long brisket cooks; Build quality is also great – I’ve exposed it to lots of different conditions, including high heat, cold weather, rain/high humidity, and it works like a champ. Bluetooth connection to the phone has always been solid, and works from quite far!
On top of the device itself, the integration with the app is awesome – the app is really slick and works perfectly, but I would take half a star on this because some stuff just isn’t intuitive and took a bit of digging to learn everything, and I consider myself relatively tech-savvy.
The other thing I LOVE is the ability to share the cook progression with friends, or just put it on a browser page – sometimes I keep it open on a laptop near me so I can monitor the cook and use my phone at the same time.
If you can afford this but are on the fence, don’t think twice. Seriously.
I’m not one to usually write reviews but I used my new FireBoard 2 Drive to smoke a chicken on my Kamodo today and was thoroughly impressed. My CiberQ kicked the bucket so I went with this unit. I was a little hesitant at first because of not knowing anyone who owned one. To my surprise, this thing kept my entire cook within three degrees and I’m particularly impressed that it automatically knows when the lid is opened. Hands down, best smoke I’ve done and I owned the CyberQ for three years. I regret not replacing it sooner. Great Product!
This lil puppy is awesome!!! One of the few pieces of technology in my home that hasn’t given me a single spec of problems, I’ve actually learned a few things while using it. If the smoker gets fired up so does the FireBoard. Seriously, this thing even works on my Apple Watch.
I use the Fireboard 2 drive with my Masterbuilt 1050. The stock controller for the 1050 is trash and the Fireboard fixes ALL of the issues. I love all of the features. It is so much easier to use and it has so many more options than the stock 1050 controller. I would like to see timers added to the app but that is a small request. Everything about the Fireboard is great for me so far.
I have been using the Fireboard 2 with the competition probes for about 4 months now. I have done a number of 24 hour cooks. As long as there is charcoal, the temperature stays at the perfect 225. This product has taken a huge amount of time and guesswork out of BBQ grilling with charcoal and I am SOOO grateful! The unit is easy to use, works great, holds a charge for many hours even with powering the fan. The App is amazing, allows me to take notes, pics, and other info to keep honing that BBQ skill set. I have recommended to many others and will continue to do so. Amazing such a flawless product was produced by a fairly new company. Thank you!
Well, I rarely write reviews, but, I feel compelled to do so for this product. Being a bit of a tech geek as many others are, I got the FB II and fan to help me with my Komodo Joe Cooking. It replaced a not old other device that was not performing well.
THIS PRODUCT SHOULD WIN A DESIGN AWARD!!! It should be product of the year!!!
Design and quality are exceptional. It is easy to use with its intuitive set up and interface. I literally had it going in a few minutes. I love the USB C cable and rechargeable battery. It connects to my iPhone and iPad seamlessly and has a real iPad interface. I have tested the probes at 0 and 100 degrees C and they are spot on. The graphical interface is very helpful looking at rates of temp rise and future projections and all the times are recorded for later reference. The ability to really geek out and send event shots and pics to friends is also easy and intuitive. The fan works perfectly and was able to help with perfect temp for my roasts, brisket and turkey.
I really can not find anything to put on a wish list of things it should do. Every thing it does it does exceptionally well.
CONGRATULATIONS on an exceptional product.
Solid thermometer/oven control/cooking guru head-unit, the battery seems very robust, the 3 probes calibrated nearly perfectly at freezing/boiling points, fantastic app/interface. I have their 20cfm fan coupled to the fireboard2 drive and it has worked like a charm both low and slow for a few 6 hour rib cooks, and a bunch of times now for standard 350-375 chicken cooking. I can easily run a 6 hour low and slow on the battery alone. I could probably do a full 14 hour low and slow, on battery. To be honest I think the limit in my case is the amount of fuel I can fit in the egg.
Very easy to set up multi-step programs, setting grill temp and time, or food target temps. Easy to set alerts on individual probes. Easy to rename probes, so instead of “probe 1” on the app/fireboard unit, it can say “wife’s steak” or “blazing inferno.” Easy to view graphs of cooks, probe temps and times and fan inputs. Interface on iPad/iPhone is flawless and intuitive.
If you are looking at the Fireboard controller with the Driver blower and you are thinking it might be overly complicated for your occasional weekend BBQ, Fireboard can make your cook easier.
Do you really need one? I guess it depends on what type of smoker/grill you have. I have a Kamado Joe Classic II, and while it is inherently easy to maintain temps, it does take some tinkering depending on where I have it setup. I used my new FireBoard with the Drive unit for the first time on Christmas day for a prime rib, and it was almost as easy as setting an oven temp and walking away. I reversed seared, and it brought the Kamado Joe up to 500 degrees quickly, but more importantly, under control.
I’m just an occasional BBQ guy, not someone who competes or cooks for a lot of friends and family with pride on the line. If you are like me, and the FireBoard is in your budget, it makes BBQing hassle-free. If you are on the fence about the Drive unit, get it… it works really well.
Works fantastic. Made smoking almost too easy with my BGE. Paired with the drive, it ket my smoker within 3 degrees of the set point all day, but this was not throw it on the grill and it just works. I had to seal off the cracks around the drive adapter and bottom vent with foil to limit airflow to only what was going thru the fan. Love having 6 probes. Not sure how you can smoke without this.
Purchased a FireBoard 2 Drive, Extreme Probe Pack and Smoker Probe – 1/2″ NPT – Thermistor on November 18, 2020. FireBoard packaged, shipped and emailed the same day. We received our order on Friday November 20, 2020 and was ready w/ a pork shoulder the following day. Since receiving, we have enjoyed the quality, accuracy and graphics on the device, app and website. The ability to set alerts and receive notifications via the app, SMS and/or email, and label sessions and probes, along w/ adding notes and pictures, has been fantastic. Additionally, Bluetooth and WiFi as been exceptional along w/ the ability to monitor from my iPhone, iPad and/or MacBook Air. After extensive research, we are very happy w/ our purchase and will be adding a Drive Blower soon. Thank you FireBoard for building an excellent product and providing great customer!
A great investment. I purchased this because the pit and meat probes on my Traeger Ironwood 650 were so inconsistent and very inaccurate. Decided to go with the drive model because I have a Vision Kamado grill. I am glad I did! I was using my CyberQ on the Kamado with limited success.
The Fireboard2 drive controls the pit temperature on the Kamado with amazing accuracy and consistency. Even better than the Traeger grill does.
It is nice to have the accuracy in temperature readings. I use the Fireboard2 for measuring temps on the Traeger pit and adjust the controls to meet the desired temps based on the Fireboard2 readings.
I am glad I purchased this and I have recommended this many times to friends as well as on the Traeger forums.
I purchased the FireBoard 2 Drive model with the two temp probes and ambient probe. I started with a Weber iGrill2 which is ok, but I found myself needing to be able to remotely read temps. I settled on the FireBoard but waited until the new models were released for pre-order. I am glad I waited! I use a WSM 18.5″ smoker and the FB2 Drive paired with a fan is essentially “cruise control”! I have done many cooks and now get to sleep all night without worrying about tending to the smoker. My wife who initially was not to enthused about my new hobby actually wants to learn how to use it because of the “set it and forget it” ease of use! If you are on the fence about buying a temp controller, buy this one, you’ll not regret it. I wish I would have started with a FireBoard and put the money into it vs. starting with a lower priced competitor. Support from FireBoard is first class. I did experience an issue with my first one, but they promptly replaced it. No further issues. Buy the best, and forget the rest!
I love everything about this product. I had a problem with the Fireboard after a firmware update so I contacted the company. A rep responded and solved my issue quickly enough to save the ribs cook. Great product. Incredible customer service/support.
Ok….I don’t write reviews, but I have to for my Fireboard! I purchased the original in May of 2019 and loved it. Trying to control a low and slow smoke on my kamado style grill (Grilla Kong) was an all day affair. I had to supervise the grill pretty much constantly so it made a cook pretty labor intensive. There was no way I was going to tell my wife that my new $1,000.00 grill was a pain and that I wanted to but a pellet smoker so I pushed on. This year I thought I’d try the Drive Cable with a fan and see if I could salvage my relationship with my kamado……….It did! The first cable came defective but after a quick call to Fireboard and a pleasant chat with Hayden I had a new cable within a couple of days and WOW does it work great! I can now start my cook early in the AM and head out for Bloody’s and brunch or go to the local DIY store and pick up stuff and get home and work on projects, the temperature stays even and consistent. I also use it to get the grill up to temperature quickly for pizza and Steaks .Their customer service is second to none. I would highly recommend this product!!!
Easy to use. Accurate temp detection. Love the way you can scroll through the graphs of a cook and how you can set up programs that you can adjust to obtain the best results. Truely a winner. Works great on my Kamado Joe. You do need to make the fan inserts a little bigger to keep from having air links.
Just got a FireBoard 2 Drive and had a quick play – all I can say is wow – this is absolutely awesome !
The app and cloud are great – the set-up and ease of use and the display is so cool – I have had a few controllers and this is on an other level compared to anything out there.
The probes are really good quality, the only issue for me was how to put the UK plug on !! once I was told it was so obvious !! but apart from this and not a big issue nothing, else to complain about.
The fan connection is great and works with any fan – I have an odd fan from an old bit of kit and works straight away.
Can’t fault it and just love it – will be doing pulled port, beef and chicken at the week end…….
Also the Wifi and Bluetooth connections are great – easy to set-up and works a treat – there is nothing not to like.
Amazing! Simply Amazing!

First run and use of the FireBoard 2 Drive. I love it.
Ran with 2 ambient sensors on probe 1 and probe 2.
Fan was ran off of probe 1.
What I learned:
* My Smokey Mountain Smoker run REAL hot (I need to use less charcoal and save the $$)
* The fan does an amazing job keeping and maintaining temp.
* WIFI and Bluetooth connectivity is great for remote monitoring but can be addictive to watch over time.
* The fan and temperature logic (ML/AI or Algorithm) is pretty damn good.
* Works great on Android 10 / Samsung S20+.
What I would love to see in the product:
* A magnetic adjustable goose neck stand that firmly holds the Fireboard 2 but magnetically attaches to anything made of mild steel and allows for easy adjustments.
* An optional small clock on the FireBoard 2 display.
* I have been a software and hardware engineer for 35 years and currently embedded//Android with DoD contractors for Federal//Goverment space with several patents. Prior to Fireboard 2 Drive I always wanted to “design and build” a better smoker temperature monitoring and fan controlling box. BUT the FireBoard 2 Drive does this for me without spend the time and efforts. There is not much to improve on but maybe some of the mobile software support.

Fantastic thermometer, and rock solid drive for my fan! I’ve only had it for around a month now, but I’ve used it on every cook since I bought it, as well as a few times without food just to “kick the tires.” It’s an amazing device, either just as a thermometer, or driving an ATC fan. It’s also nice to be able to share data with distant relatives who can watch my cooks from hundreds of miles away!
I bought the Fireboard Drive 2 and have been extremely impressed with the capabilities. I also bought the Fireboard fan to go along with it. I have a lot of temperature controllers but this one has probably become my favorite after just a week of using it. The new Fireboard control unit itself is much more durable and robust than the original. Its heavy enough that it won’t move around much and become problematic when you have multiple probes attached to it. The heft and durability of the new fan is also impressive. I use this system mainly on Kamado grills. I LOVE the ability the software gives me to set a max speed for the fan. 20cfm is just too much for the Kamado grill in most cases. I dialed my max speed back to 20% and it works BEAUTIFULLY at that setting. I don’t overshoot my set temp and it holds quite steadily once it reaches that target. I also share a lot of my cooks on social media. The app ability to document my cook with multiple photos and comments is PERFECT. When my cook is complete, I can share my Fireboard session with the associated photos and temperature data. The only thing I don’t like about the Fireboard 2 Drive is that I wish it had on-device control options for setting target temps and probe alarms. I don’t mind using the phone or my PC to control the device, but having the manual control option would be awesome. At any rate, the Fireboard 2 Drive is going to be my go-to control system. Thanks for all the hard work that went into this product.

Just received my FireBoard 2 Drive model and can’t recommend this unit strongly enough! Screen is huge and the fan maintains steady cooking temps and for long smokes the battery life is excellent. I hope they will add dark mode for the iPhone app and perhaps make the app mirror the FireBoard screen when the iPhone is in landscape mode, that would be awesome.
After using a couple of other two-probe therms from other companies, I decided I wanted to up my game, and the day I went to pull the trigger on a Fireboard, there was a banner saying “Look for an exciting announcement from Fireboard on Friday….” …so I waited. I’m glad I did! I got the FBX2D for less money than I was going to pay for the Fireboard, drive cable, and case, I got all 3 in one, and over several cooks, I’m in love with it! Thanks Fireboard!
I received my Fireboard 2 yesterday and so far I am impressed with the product! Build quality is solid, UI/UX of the device is straight forward, and using the App together with the unit was also very straight forward. I did extensive testing with the 3 supplied probes and the temps were spot on. Being able to see our temps on Multiple Phones with the Fireboard App in addition to the FireBoard.com website is absolutely awesome! I can’t wait to use this with my meat smoker this weekend!
This is my first high quality thermometer and temperature controller. Did a ton of research and felt this was within $50 of any comparable solution and seemed to have higher quality. I’ve used it twice and am very happy. Setup was a breeze. The instruction manual is short, and so much of the functionality within the app is intuitive. The control unit is very well built. Battery life is better than I expected. In the app you can easily title your cooks, and add notes so it will serve as a nice reference for the future. I can’t think of much more I would want out of the device. Well done!
