Setup was so frustrating I wanted to throw this thing in the trash. The app really needs work. Customer service was great, but only available during weekdays during business hours. Initially this device would turn off for no reason and turn back on At 100% fan output bringing temp up way to hot and cooking the H-E-double-hockey sticks out of some once promising chicken quarters. I had zero trust or confidence in this thing, Customer service acknowledged the problem and had to manually update my device info on their end before the app would work properly. I was very angry that I could not use this over the long weekend that I intended it for. Once setup (with customer service support) it works as advertised and I’ve been happy with it. If I had to do it again, Well i guess i would. It really is awesome.
This is a great system for controlling the temperature of your smoker and the finished temperature of the meat you are smoking. This controller can keep the temperature low and slow for large or thick cuts of meat like roasts, briskets, hams, turkeys, etc.,or turn up the heat for steaks, hamburgers, hot dogs or other grilled items. It will send via wi-fi the temperature of meat AND the temp of the smoker to your phone, tablet, or desktop. The notes section of the app lets you name the the type meat cooked that day, how long it took to finish, and any adjustments you would make for next time. That takes the guesswork out of trying to remember what settings you used last time for the next time you smoke the same type of meat. All the air input vents are sealed going into the firebox except what goes through the controller.The controller fan blows air into the fire box to heat up your coals and temperature or stops blowing to cool down the smoker temperature automatically to keep it in the range of temperature you desire! No more worries about keeping the smoker temp where it needs to be on days with no breeze or strong breezes making a crispy critter out of your meat.
Pros: Distributes Heat Evenly, Durable, Easy to Clean
I have had this device for a little over two weeks now. Performance is exactly as expected. keeps my green egg at whatever temperature I set on the device. The algorithm that controls the temperature works quite nicely.
If I open up the lid and close it the temperature will automatically stabilize after it calculates at which point turn on the fan. I have not had any issues with my probes and the temperature seems fairly accurate for both the smoker and the food. I have several times set the temperature and put on a brisket late at night, and it will keep the exact temperature all night long.
All in all it is a handy addition to my Smoker. It fit easily on my green egg. My wife used to hate eating my smoked foods because they didn't cook right. Now she loves to eat my brisket!
Pros: Distributes Heat Evenly, Durable, Superior Craftsmanship
I have owned a Large Big Green Egg for over 20 years. During that time, I have gone through three gas grills and two charcoal grills. The Egg is my favorite device for most outdoor cooking, but it does take a great deal of focus for temperature regulation. I have been using the iGrill thermometer for a few years which allowed me to monitor both grill and food temperature remotely, but it still took several trips outside to adjust the airflow to keep the temperature consistent. The idea of having automatic control of the temperature was intriguing, so I thought I’d give the Flame Boss 400 a try.
I was surprised at the size and light weight of the device! I wondered if something this small could have an impact with the large size EGG. The included instructions were well written and easy to follow. There is even a QR code to scan which takes you directly to a link for the app. I downloaded the iOS app and began the process of setting up the Flame Boss 400 to my wireless network. It actually took me a couple of attempts to find the device, but once it was found, the connection went flawlessly. The app and firmware have been updated for the device since my initial connection, and now includes new connectivity solutions. I had no issues connecting after the updates.
Installing the adapter plate the first time took a couple of minutes to understand, but it was not hard to do. Connecting the device to the adapter plate was also tricky at first, but was simple after the initial connection. I have an outside power outlet close to the Egg, but the power supply design would not allow it to plug directly in the outdoor outlet. Connecting it via an extension cord solved that problem.
My initial use of the Flame Boss 400 was to cook full slabs of ribs. I clipped the ambient temperature probe on the grill a couple of inches away from the ribs as instructed, and put the food temperature probe in the ribs at the thickest point. I followed the instructions to adjust the top air vents to a very small opening. I was skeptical as to being able to get the temperature up with that small an opening, but thought I’d give it a try before opening it up to where I would normally set it when cooking at low temperature. The fan kicked on and the app tracked the temperature as it rose to my target cooking temperature of 225 degrees. What happened after that forever changed my BGE cooking experience! The iGrill had allowed me to know the cooking temperature and the food temperature remotely, but not do anything about it. The Flame Boss 400 not only provided the temperatures, but also kept the cooking temperature at EXACTLY 225 degrees for the entire cooking time without any interaction at all on the Egg vents! The graph showed that the temperature did not vary at all! I was absolutely amazed at the results.
The Flame Boss 400 has totally changed my cooking experience with the Big Green Egg! I would not go back to cooking “low and slow” without the device. I would highly recommend the product for any ceramic cooker.
This is a handy addition to any egg style grill or any smoker for that matter. There are different adapters for many applications, basically it don't have to be pretty when you are done, it just has to be able to push air into your cooker. I installed this on an upright metal charcoal smoker. After some alterations to my grill, it was in place and able to do the job I needed it to do. One Caution, it needs to have access to your wifi and if the signal is not strong enough to work where your grill is, you may need to install a booster on your wifi. Mine wasn't able to work where I had it outside, and it never worked in my bedroom. Now I have solved both issues with the wifi. The app they provide will work with IOS and android, just d/l and have fun with it. It will keep you up to date on the temp in the grill as well as the temp of the food. It will also let you track your cook and make logs of what you did, what adjustments you made, and any future suggestions you have for next time. So now you have a log of how long it took, no guessing. It is a bummer to not have a diplay screenon the unit, but that raises the cost considerably, this is a bare bones way to stabilized the cooking temp and also know what is going on with the cook without standing in the cold or even being at home or awake for that matter. Good luck and have fun.
