I don't mean to hijack Brian's thread, but yes the adapter will fit a Guru blower fan.

I'm technology challenged so bare with me. If at the lake then one phone would serve as a hotspot and another could be on the boat connected to an app for the readings correct?

You guys go to fancy lakes! Cell service, power, router hook ups. Geez!!!! The lakes I visit we have to send up smoke signals if we want to communicate!

Not in the budget for me right now but I'll be getting one soon.

Dan the instructions were very clear and easy. You download the fireboard app. Turn bluetooth on. Turn the unit on. Then open the app. Once the app opens you push the device button and it searches for it. Mine found it right away. It was that simple.

Sounds like my kind of lakes!

I got myself a smoke a couple months back or I would probably spring for this... still waiting for Thermoworks to come through with the gateway and app.  I see that the fireboard has an alexa skill!

I got the higher unit. Run one ambient probe to my cold smoke box. One Ambient probe to my smoker and one ambient probe for room temp where my smoker is used. Had couple issues but they worked me thru them. Get bunch of people at Fireboard. I love the fact that it keeps everything in the cloud. The graphs are great. Instead of downloading the files. I use screen shot on my computer to save a session. Works better for me that way. Great unit. I have to thank smokinAl and his great looking meatloaf review he did with it.

I have had my FireBoard master set(6probes) for about a month. I have used it almost every day for every single cook I have done. It is a workhorse, never drops connection, stays accurate and is completely customizable.

I put on whatever I am cooking, get a pit probe and at least one probe in the meat and I head out of the house. The unit stays connected always and never once has it dropped. I have gone across town and even went to shoot a round of sporting clays. The whole time I was monitoring my pork butt, so.nice!!!

I love this thing, and will never turn back. Since I have the GMG with WiFi I am even able to make adjustments to my temps based off of what the FireBoard is telling me.

I have a meatloaf on the grill as I type...see the pic.



Here is another pic

Well, I hate to say it but my issues with my ThermoPro (even though customer service was awesome) have pushed me to looking at a fireboard.  And the reviews you guys did are great btw.

Chris....looks to be about 5" long if fully insterted

Also one thing I forgot to mention is that you can buy extension cables for the probes. You just tell the unit that you have an extension so that it can calibrate accordingly.

For those who already have one, or for those still on the fence; Fireboard has released pre-order for its waterproof case today. Shipping will start the week of July 31st.

The waterproof case is a nice addition, and will no doubt keep the unit much safer than without it.
