      The app has never worked right. Mine also drops the WiFi and Bluetooth after an hour or so. It does display temps ok but the graphs are messed up. I think I have a bad unit.

      Did you ever get your app to work properly? I'm still having issues. Since I have a Smoke and a Fireboard I just leave that Signals sitting there. Tried it a week ago and lost both wifi and bluetooth during the cook, very frustrating.

        I waited & waited before I bought my Smoke. Then ThermoWorks had a sale on the wifi bridge, so I bought that. Then very soon after Signals came out which did everything Smoke & the wifi bridge did and added 2 channels . I suspect my next purchase will likely be a Fireboard.

        That said, good for you on waiting! If it works as good as Smoke, you will be quite happy .

          I've got the Smoke and Wifi Gateway, and other than a few sync issues between the Smoke and its remote and/or the gateway, its been good. I had a few glitches with the app, but for the most part, its all been rock solid. My remote quit working recently, and I called Thermoworks to buy a new one, and they told me I was still in the 2 year warranty, and had me ship it all off. They ended up sending me back my smoke, along with a brand new remote. They have great customer service, and always answer the phone when I've called.

          Let us know how you like it! My only issue with both the Signals and the Fireboard is that I *HAVE* to use my phone to look at it. I'm lazy and like using the dedicated remote when I am home and within range of the cooker...

              Interesting. Reading through this thread several have mentioned problems with the Smoke and Signals dropping wifi and/or bluetooth. I'm sitting here in my office waiting for the Fireboard app to decide it wants to give me some temperatures again. It will display them for perhahps 5 minutes, then spend ten minutes telling me it's waiting on temperature data. When it works it's nice, but it spends a lot of time not working. Not really impressed. The few times my Smoke has a glitch (and that's perhaps every four or five cooks), restarting my phone clears it up. I have not been able to discern any pattern with the Fireboard, and no consistent way to get it to show data, except to wait til it gets around to feeling like it.

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

                maverick PT55 thermometer

                A good digital thermometer keeps you from serving dry overcooked food or dangerously undercooked food. They are much faster and much more accurate than dial thermometers. YOU NEED ONE!

                Click here for more info on the Maverick PT-55 Waterproof Instant-Read Thermometer Review shown above. It may be the best value in a thermometer out there


                If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

                slow n sear

                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.

                Bring The Heat With Broil King Signet's Dual Tube Burners

                the good one grill

                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 quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

                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.

                Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

                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.
