I have been using a Flame Boss 300 on my vertical smoker for nearly 2 years and have fallen in love with the ease of use, control, and visibility. I often do long smokes during the day and can monitor progress from my office, or overnight monitoring progress from my bed. Having this level of visibility and control on the smoker made me realize how blind I was cooking with my charcoal grill, especially when cooking with indirect heat for extended periods. So now I have the Flame Boss 400 hooked up on my charcoal grill, and the functionality works just the same as my vertical smoker.
The FB400 is easier to use thanks to the controller being integrated into the fan module rather than being two separate units. So instead of plugging in power, fan, grate probe, and meat probe you just connect the temp probes to the fan and connect to power. The downside is that you do not have a dedicated display, but this is a minor inconvenience since you can connect directly to the Flame Boss with your phone/tablet in direct mode, or can just connect the Flame Boss to wifi and access anywhere through the app or web interface. It is good to know the direct mode is available in case of server outage, as there would be no other way to monitor a cook with the FB400 since it does not have its own display.
Overall, I would say the integrated controller fan and less wires makes this an easier device to use than the earlier models, which is perfect for shorter cooks on the grill. But I would not hesitate to recommend the FB400 for any charcoal grill or smoker application, and am very pleased (maybe even addicted) to being able to know what is going on with my cooks at every moment and make adjustments on the fly without even being home or outside.
The Flame Boss 400 WiFi universal temperature controller works with many types of charcoal grills and smokers to allow you to monitor and regulate the temps while your food is cooking. The kit includes the WiFi controller with integrated 12 CFM (variable speed) blower grill adapters, high-temp meat probe, high-temp pit probe and a power supply. It is easy to install and use with a mobile app. It is compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Home for optional voice command control. My husband set it up very quickly and now can set alarms on his phone for desired cook time and internal meat temps with text alerts if cook temp is high/low and when cooking is finished. He can set the meat alarm to automatically turn down the pit temp when the right temperature is reached to keep food warm. This unit connects with any device that has a browser without installing software.
Pros: Distributes Heat Evenly, Easy to Assemble, high tech, variable speed blower, ensures meat is perfectly cooked, alarms and alerts can be set, Easy to Use, works with many grill and smoker types
Great Idea for Smoker Controller. I've been a slave to watching over my Off-Set Barrel Smoker since I got it. The Flame Boss Wi-Fi Smoker Controller will free me up to do other things while Smoking. It Fit on my side box fairly easy after moving the handle on the box. The Weather was bad so I hooked up to Wi-Fi in the house fairly easy. It's really Cool to see what's going on and able to adjust accordingly. Can't wait to get Smoking.
Pros: Distributes Heat Evenly, Easy to Assemble, easy to control, wi=fi
At first I was not sure how or where to use this item. But after some research the " UNIVERSAL WI-FI SMOKER CONTROLLER " is a pretty cool item. I actually mounted mine in/thru my wood burning pizza oven to control the flame/heat. It does work very well but takes some trial and error to get it just the way you want it. The install was a bit tricky but if you are a DIY'r with some skills and no fair of cutting thru your smoker, grill, oven, etc. then this is good for you. the app is easy to follow. the only issue I had was drop connections, but do not know if it was my device or the unit.
Impressive controller in a compact size! Don't let the size of this temperature controller fool you, it packs a lot of punch, and is extremely useful. It has 2 temperature probes, one inserted in to the meat, and one that measures the air temp in your grill or smoker. The grill temperature probe regulates an onboard fan which will maintain (with pretty exacting results!) the temperature of the air inside your grill or smoker. The meat probe gives exact readings in the internal temp of your meat. I especially like that the controller connects directly to my home wifi and not via Bluetooth since Bluetooth range is terrible compared to wifi. The app which accompanies this controller is amazing! You can set both your meat and grill desired temperatures in the app, and the controller does the rest! Also, the controller sends real time temperatures to your phone and the measurements are displayed in number form and in a timeline graph form! The unit is powered by an ac adaptor, or there is an optional battery (which I purchased, and strongly recommend if you take your grill camping.) Overall I'm very impressed with the amount of power and tech that is packed in to a controller which fits in the palm of your hand.
Pros: Distributes Heat Evenly, Durable, Easy to Assemble, Sturdy, Superior Craftsmanship
