Have everything up and running on the iGrill and I have to say I am very impressed. The app on the phone is very user friendly, and th einfo it is sending wil be used, no doubt about it.
Currently, it is measuring my grill. The Right side is consistently 15-20 degrees cooler than the Left, and the grill is actually averaging 20 degrees COOLER than the grill measurement states.
As I look at the location of the probes, I am not surprised. The GMG probe is BELOW the drip trays, which are wrapped in foil, so it is getting a direct read of the heat below, instead of on top where the meat is sitting. Surprising they would choose that location to place the probe. Many questions are being answered for me on why my first cooks were such a struggle. Set at 180 and was actually cooking at 160-165!!!
This makes me think, not that I would ever need it often, but how will it ever be possible to get to the 500 temp the grill is supposed to be able to get to?
Bottom line though for this thread...if you are on the fence, spend th extra money and get the iGrill2....I am very pleased with the quality and the way the info is sent to me. I am glad I went with this over a Maverick. Really feel like it is something I will not Out Grow..........
