    Thermoworks Smoke

    Did you pull the little plastic tabs out from the battery compartment?

      Thermoworks makes great quality products but like any company sometimes one slips through the cracks. I would still recommend the company and the product.

            My pre-ordered one arrived last week. It was a welcome relief from my two-channel, wireless Maverick (733??) that made me feel like I was playing Chinese Checkers when trying to set my temps.

                Mine was easy to set up and use right out of the box. Way better than my Maverick.

                  You are all making me really mad on this thread. I have another brand's thermo that works "fair". I cannot get the high/low temp alarm to work despite following the directions. So I watched the video for this product and I want it. However, Christmas is coming and I'm not allowed to buy anything from about October 15th until December 24th for myself. I would really like one for Thanksgiving's turkey and I'm convinced of two things: 1) I need it and 2) I'll get in big trouble if I order it for myself. Arghhh. I need a PCB, a Big Joe and a hot tub right now!

                        This happens to me more then I care to admit, sad thing is one of my hobbies is I build custom high end gaming computers where attention to detail is needed (some of these computers are an excess of 7k) and I always forgot to do this when I buy myself a new gadget.

                          Placeholder

                          The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

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

                          Placeholder

                          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.

                          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!

                          The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                          Placeholder

                          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.

                          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.

                          Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                          Placeholder

                          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.

                          This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.

                          Napoleon's NK22CK-C 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 NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
