    I have had no issues with my Signals, been using it for over 6 months now. Guess I got a lucky draw. No issues with WiFi or app. I wish the app wouldn’t close out every time my phone shuts off / sleeps.

    I'm with you on graphs. I hand-made some graphs when I was starting out (my teachers would be proud) then they got so repetitive I never found the desire to do it more or get a device that had graphing. I can see if you're starting out, trying to nail a specific timeframe, or see a visual on the variances between different cook temps/time, but that's just not me.

    The Smoke Gateway add-on does, but it's limited to the original not the X4 so only 2 probes.

    I bought a Signals about this time last year. Didn’t have much problem setting it up but there was a firmware update that came out shortly after owning it. It worked 2-3 times after it then just flat out died. Wouldn’t even turn on. Thermoworks quickly replaced it for me.

    The new hardware is working great. Have has some probe issues that bug me. Supposedly I’m getting water in to them somehow. I’ve been careful cleaning them, not submerging them, but I’ve sent some back and that’s what they told me.

    The current iPhone software is TERRIBLE. It’s been 4 months since the last update. They are aware of the problems and working on updates. I’m guessing by the length of time it is taking they are doing a little bit more than just squashing bugs.

    Knowing what I know now I’d go for the Smoke X4. Having the app with a graph is great, but if it doesn’t work like it should then what good is it?

    I wish there was a product that offered both a RF remote AND had Wi-Fi connection.

    I own both the iGrill and Signals and agree. The problem with the iGrill is the short range of Bluetooth. Unfortunately it sounds like Weber’s new ‘Hub’ thermometer is a step backwards from the original.

    I’ve never had issues with my Smoke, aside from the range - it doesn’t like the number of walls in my house from the grill, so has dead spots. The Smoke X should not have any such issue.

    I have the WiFi Gateway for my Smoke, which makes it work with the same app as the Signals. Early on I had a lot of app related issues, and had to deal with support a couple of times on it. Last cook the WiFi bridge died during an overnight cook - it has its own built in rechargeable battery. The Smoke itself, and the dedicated remote, run for seemingly years on a set of alkaline batteries.

    I am over having graphs of my cooks, and know about how long things will take these days, so the WiFi feature is take it or leave it for me. If I were buying today, I would get the Smoke X4 or the Maverick XR-50. If I wanted fan control, definitely the Smoke X4, and the Billows fan.

    Yeah I don’t get it but it’s beyond my pay scale.

    like I said. I have many products and I LOVE them all! Love the “Dots too” I have 5 I think. I’m afraid to get any of the WiFi stuff on those.

    The big and loud timer. AWESOEME too!!!

    Pocket instareads... BOMB!

    Maybe like a Cisco partnership or something?

    ill keep buying their stuff but without WiFi. I think I’m looking at the Fireboard.

    Still haven’t opened my billows yet either.

    got my X4 a couple weeks back and it's great (it's bound for campground duty when we can go back there).

    Also have a signals and I've had good luck with it. only thing I dont like is the lack of audible alarm on the phone when you're not in the app.

    UHHH---I'm kind of afraid to ask. Does anyone own or have experience with the SmokeX?
    I'm beginning to kind of miss my $59.00 IGrill. That thing was bullet proof.

    Well this SmokeX better be bitchin' right out of the box. I spent way too much frustrating time trying to get the Signals to work. I kept thinking it was ME--but my wife and son are kind of good at all that hooking up wifi/bluetooth/hoodoo stuf and they were so done they wouldn't even speak with tech support when he eventually did call back. That left me talking to him and it was a short sweet conversation.

    I could never get my smoke gateway to work either, so i guess TW makes fantastic thermometers, but they don’t seem to know anything about WiFi.

    I own countless ThermoWorks products and am a staunch supporter sir.

    Signals is by far the biggest hunk of junk I have ever owned. Keep in mind I owned a 77 Chevy Chevette bought used from the post office and converted back to left hand drive.

    Exact same all the way around for me too, I could've typed this comment. Except I gave mine away, and I dearly hope the recipient likes it!
