    Problem with ThermoWorks Signals

    So I did an overnight cook yesterday with my Signals/Billows. The device froze on a pit temperature of 154 and put temperature of 235 for about five hours during the night. I turned off the signals and restarted it, and the meat temp was down to 114, and the pit temp was down in the 100’s. This device nearly ruined an $80 brisket. Fortunately, I was able to get the brisket in the oven and save it, but I’m hesitant to ever use this device again. Has anybody else ever had this issue?

    I don't have one, but Thermoworks has great customer service - give 'em a call tomorrow.


      Agreed. Call or email them. They’ll fix or replace.


        Maybe you should try golf?
        jus kiddin, call Thermoworks!

          Did a Birdie tell you that?

        well thats a bummer. i just got mine thurday and drilled a 1 1/8 inch hole on my vision grill. hope this was a fluke. post what the theromwork team says.


          I just got my Signals X4 the other day and just tried it tonight. Curious how this plays out.


            I had the same problem with the Thermoworks Smoke. For some reason it would just lock up. Turning it off and back on always solved the problem. After the 4th time, I gave it to my kid, and bought a Fireboard. I did make 3 calls to Thermoworks, and got the same answer each time. "Just a one time random glitch. Nothing to worry about." When I said this was the 3rd time this "one time" glitch happened, I got a full 10 seconds of silence. I own a drawer full of Thermoworks products, and love them, but I'm sticking to Fireboard for my smokers.

            Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

            Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

            The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
