    I received an email from them this morning about the sleeves. I like that they are made from silicone & can be cleaned in the dishwasher.

    They just announced the sleeves today on the Facebook presentation but said they are not available yet due to them being stuck on a container ship off Long Beach, CA. They said maybe 3 - 4 weeks but also maybe 5 - 7 weeks before they get delivered to FireBoard and they can put them up on their website.

    I don't see the probe sleeves on their website .... was it in the email that I didn't read?

    I have their probe storage and honestly I'm not a huge fan. If they were single spool they would be great, but they are not good for multiple probes like they advertise. In my drawer I set them on their side, probe plug goes in the divet on the bottom that lets them stack. But only useful for a single probe.

    The other interesting (to me, anyway) item they announced today is their probe sleeves. They're stackable and, to me, a better idea than the probe spools I've seen elsewhere.

    Hmmm I like the look, the idea of having an instant read that can also use a single probe from the fireboard is interesting too. Unfortunately, the only time that would make sense for me is if I had something on the smoker and something in the oven I think. But as a standalone single probe fireboard, the value is there. Just not there for people who already own the full size product IMO.

    I watched the announcement on Facebook. I like that you can add the Spark to your FireBoard account and when you are using it while using your FireBoard, the instant read temps will show up on the graph of your cook. Also like that you can plug a probe into the Spark and have it act as a though it was plugged into your Fireboard if you needed another food or ambient probe. However, I already have 2 Thermapen MK4 so I don't need another instant read. If one of the MK4's goes, I'd consider this along with a Thermapen One.

    That's pretty cool ..... If I didn't already have a Fireboard 2, 8 probes, a FB Drive, FB Fan, and 2 Thermapen Mk IV, I would put this on my list.

    It is nice to see them coming out with an entry level product. I know it is tough for some to go all in with their normal Fireboard 2. I have their original fire board and fan and love it. This Spark seems pretty versatile, but for now I don't see much value add to my kitchen. I think I will stick with my trusty Thermapens unless some reviews come out that it is so much better, and it is a must have.

The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


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.

Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.
