    Fireboard Case Update




    A quick update on the status of your FireBoard Case pre-order - We received our case shipment this week; unfortunately, the screen printing on the top of the case was incorrect. Our supplier is already working on the reprints and will be shipping them to us next week. After that we'll begin assembly and should begin shipping on or around August 24th. We sincerely apologize for this delay.
    While technically we have everything to ship out this week, we feel it is best for our supplier to reprint these tops so that it meets our highest quality standards.

    On a positive note, all other aspects of the case look great and we feel that you will love how they look. We appreciate your patience as we push to get these in your hands as quickly as possible.

    If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at info@fireboard.com

    Thank you!

    The FireBoard Team

      I'm impressed with their standards. Also happy to try the new cord wraps when they come, too!

        Spoke with Fireboard at length over the last couple of days about a botched order. They made it right, awesome customer service.

        While I had them I asked about the cases and fan cable. Cases started shipping yesterday, 8/29. And pre-order should have them this week or early next.
        Fan cable should be available mid-September, if not sooner.

        Anybody get a shipping update on their case?

          No shipping update yet. I'm anxiously awaiting an email.

          Do you know if those cables were pre-order ready or actually ready mid-September? No big deal, just curious.

            What she told me, is "The fan control cable and fan should be available for sale mid September if not earlier".
            That is a direct quote, I just noticed she said fan cable AND fan. Fireboard fan?!?!

          I pre-ordered too, and got the email. No rush for me, but I do look forward to getting the case. Since the main unit is so small and light-weight the probes themselves weigh almost more. Makes it hard to place somewhere. As soon as I touch the probes the main unit tends to slide off the side table. So that little magnet on the back of the case will is very welcome

            I've had a probe fall off the table and take the unit with it. I have some lead tape (for fly tying) I attached to the unit.

            I have not yet received an update to my pre-order either, but am anxiously awaiting the case. I have the same problem Henrik does and is the main reason I bought one!

              A dab of super glue (or double sided tape) and a small neodymium magnet or two will solve the "lack of a magnet" problem.

              Magnets don't work (obviously) on granite so I use a silicone trivet to set my Fireboard or other thermos on as it provides some friction so they aren't so readily moved around. Those silicone trivets also are good to have around the grill and prep tables for other uses.

              Like these (there are lots of other choices available):

                    Aw, man! Still no email detailing shipping here. I did only pre-order my case a week and a half ago, though, so I'm probably further down the line.

                    I suffer from MCS as much as the next guy, actually just received my Firebird Extreme edition today, but I can't find a way to justify spending $55 plus shipping in a case for a $189 thermometer. What am I missing here?

                      will need to know a little more, like do you live somewhere that has a lot of rain or snow? is your smoker covered and protected from the elements? If you said yes to the first and no to the latter I may have a guess at why you ordered the case. If not just strike it up to MCS. (Make sure you keep all the packing encase you send it back.)

                      My grill area is exposed and I get plenty of rain and snow but that isn't the point. $55 just seems like an irrational high price for a case for an already pricey thermometer. Unless the case is made of gold or something.

                      Thanks for the clarification. That does seem high for a 3d printed box I'll stick with my zip lock bag covered by a small (disposable) aluminum pan with a rock from my garden on top and the wires going down through the slats in my side table.

                    heres a few pics in action. I like having the kickstand. Obviously this isn't for everyone, just like the thermometer isn't as well. I bought it, I like it! To each their own right?

                    Digital Thermometers Are Your Most Valuable Tool And Here's A Great Buy!

                    maverick PT55 thermometer

                    The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King's proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills.

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

                    the good one grill

                    The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. 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 All 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. Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

                    The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                    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 in the hardware stores because temperature control is so much easier. Best of all, it is only $299 delivered to your door!

                    The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                    NK-22-Ck Grill

                    Their 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.

The beefy hardwood handle provides a comfortable grip secured by three hefty rivets. He has machine washed his more than 100 times. They have never rusted and they stay shiny without polishing.
