I love to hear great stories! I haven't heard much on the GMG or Rectec, so I did spend an hour looking on both sites watching vids etc. I am interested in the app's performance while using data offline without WiFi while away from home while others are home watching the grill/smoker. And how to tell when the controller on the smoker needs a WiFi firmware update. Since all the eggs are in one basket, so to speak (on the pellet container) and something goes wrong, which it will, how do you tell if it's Wifi, heating element, auger, low pellet warning, power outage etc? I'd have to wonder otherwise if a separate RF remote or the lesser Bluetooth range is better to be separate than integrated, but then if the integration is great, then having the the grill/smoker adjusting itself after time or IT temp would be phenomenal (if the meat therm on the GMG is calibrated correctly.) If you would give detailed results on your personal ease of use, set up etc. I would appreciate it, because the push and hold this and press that then......was something I think I would need to keep the manual in proximity to the smoker. Then I would wonder before every smoke if I should update the firmware before every smoke. I'm not pushing against the fence but prefer feed back from this forum than the manufacturers. If you would kindly elaborate, I can ad this to my RAM. LOL Brain.
