    Thermoworks Smoke Gateway (Wifi) coming...

    In case it isn't common knowledge, I just noticed that the Smoke thermometer features list says "COMING 2017 - Smoke Gateway (Wi-Fi) & Smartphone App" at the bottom.

    Coincidentally, I am currently at work and having to get temp updates on the chuck roast I'm smoking from my wife, who's at home, via text message right now. She's not exactly thrilled about the temp checking requests, and I'm not thrilled with her slow response time, so this will be a welcome addition with my MCS!

    Anyone know if the original units can be adapted, or will Wifi capability only be built in to the next generation of Smoke?

    You know what I do? I have a camera supposed to be used as a baby monitor. I've repurposed it to be a BabyQ cam. Problem solved (for me anyway).

      Funny, I was just joking about how I should use our doggy cam for that.

    JPGators17 - Hahahahahahaha. Wait until you feel like you have a fever. I'll bet she puts that Smoke thermometer to good use. And you think her response time is slow now?

        JPGators17 I'm sorry to say that unless they already built the WiFi radio into the unit (which they may have if they knew it was coming soon but I wouldnt bet of it) you will have to get the next generation of Smoke to get the WiFi and app capability.

        Oh Im a bit slow the gateway is an add on device!! I figured it was just a feature the new ones would have built in. Ok so as usual I'm wrong! (happens all the time lol) very kool deal.

          Good news. The gateway will work with your Smoke. From ThermoWorks / Smoke / More Info:

          6. When Smoke Gateway (Wi-Fi Bridge) comes out will it work with my existing Smoke or do I need to buy a new Smoke base unit?
          Smoke Gateway will work with your existing Smoke when it becomes available. You will not need to buy a new Smoke. Smoke Gateway simply retrieves the wireless transmission from Smoke and pushes it to your Smartphone.

            So it sounds like the gateway is a relay - converting the existing wireless signal and broadcasting a wifi signal.

            Y'know, thinking of all the bluetooth devices out there, wouldn't it be cool for there to be a device you could pair with one or more to broadcast over wifi?

              Anybody thinking about buying a Smoke and WiFI Gateway Combo should take a good look at the Fireboard thermometer.

              Same price but with more capabilities.

                I don't see a price for the Gateway listed yet. If adding it puts the total package up to $189, I can see your point.

                My understanding is that the Smoke Gateway is going to be $90 and only support one Smoke. Fireboard is $190 for the base unit plus 1 grate probe and 2 meat probes. Or $250 for 2 grate probes and 6 meat probes, although you can only use 6 probes at one time.

                Looks cool but I wish they would make a wireless interface for their ThermaQ. ;-)

                Or a wireless ThermaQ...because yeah...I clearly need yet another one. LOL

                    Speaking of thermometers with Wifi, anyone get a Meater yet? Last I heard, they were claiming shipments starting in late January. I am hoping this month!!!

                      It has been one of my more disappointing Kickstarter backings... I still hold out hope. With $2M raised I would think they have something....Maybe this month ;-)

                  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 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.

                  Placeholder

                  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.
