    • Hi, my name is Darrell. I'm an OTR truck driver for over 25 years. During my off time I love doing backyard cooks. I have a 48" Lang Deluxe smoker, Rec-Tec pellet smoker,1 Weber Genesis 330, 1 Weber Performer (blue), 2 Weber kettles (1 black and 1 Copper), 1 26" Weber kettle, a WSM, 8 Maverick Redi Chek thermometers, a PartyQ, 2 SnS, Grill Grates, Cast Iron grates, 1 ThermoPop (orange) and 2 ThermoPens (pink and orange) and planning on adding more cooking accessories. Now I have an Anova sous vide, the Dragon blower and 2 Chef alarms from Thermoworks.

    I bought a Maverick that does 4 probes through bluetooth for about 70 bucks. But it only came with 2 probes and this one has something to keep the probes organized. I would have paid 20 extra for that.

          I have an iGrill II, and I'm not sure about it yet, I wanted to be able to download cook logs but have not found a way to do it, so back to the Maverick for me, If I run the kettle and the PBC at the same time I'll use it then. There was a huge difference between the Maverick and the iGrill readings and I have more confidence in the Maverick.

            I love my iGrill 2. I wouldn't want to go back to the Maverick; I just never cared for it.

            You're gonna love your new iGrill. Congrats!

              Bought this Sunday at Sams Club in Rapid City for $79.91. Haven't used it in the smoker yet but it seems to read ambient room temperature ok. All four probes register within 1 degree of each other. Hope to take it for a test drive this weekend.

                When you're using the iGrill there is a screen you spend most of your time on that shows a temp and graph of each probe that you are using. If you select one of those temps another screen will pop up that shows only that one temperature/graph. You then select the menu that pops up from the bottom of the screen and there will be an option to save the graph data. Click that and you should be able to email your data wherever you like! Note you have to do this for each probe graph you wish to save. So if you have 4 probes worth of data you want to keep you'll have to save 4 files.

                  JohnF, I found that in side by side comparison with my thermoworks products, all my Maverick probes were approximately 7 degrees high in their readings. I tested my Dot, my Thermapen, my Chefalarm, and my RT600C. they all read 32 degrees in my ice bath, and the Maverick read 39 degrees. So for myself, I don't know how confident I am in the Maverick. One of the Maverick probes was brand new out of the package too!

                    I think I'd be calibrating at 212° rather than 32°. You'll want to calibrate closer to the temps you'll be cooking at rather than a temp that is of no use in your cooker.

                  CeramicChef, I did calibrate at both temperatures. In fact, the Maverick was even worse at cooker temps. I just recently did that calibration, and I need to consult my notes on exact differences. But it seems to me that if the temp is off at one point, it will be consistently off at least that much. And for Thermoworks at least, that is how they recommend calibrating, in an ice bath, at 32 degrees.

                  If you have a device you can dedicate to the igrill while you are cooking, you'll probably like it. The bluetooth was not sufficient for me to walk to the basement without me losing connection on my iPhone. I couldn't really go very far anywhere in my house without losing my connection. I use my phone all the time, so this was not an option for me, so I returned mine. Amazon return policy rocks!

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

                          the good one grill
                          The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker.

                          Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                          The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!
