    Well, I did it...

    ... I ordered a Fireboard 2 Pro to replace the CyberQ that no longer connects to my phone. I did talk to BBQ Guru and they said that there were no other apps that worked with the CyberQ.

    I can use the Pit Viper fan I already have, so the cost wasn't as bad as it could have been...

      Nonsense, toothpicks, or particleboard on the George Foreman will give you a nice smokey flavor to the meat. The flavor is hard to beat.

    So BBQ Guru no longer has working apps for their devices? That sounds concerning.

      Not correct - they do have an app, but it only works with the higher end of their current lineup.

        It seems that they stop supporting older stuff a bit too quickly. Combine that with the amount of love Fireboard gets here and the decision was easy.

      You went all out on the Pro version? Very cool. I kinda wish I would have waited for the Pro to upgrade from the original, but I have so many FB probes of different types. With the MAK having type-K probes, I thought it would be nice to have have a Pro now though.

      Fireboard rocks, I've had one since the Kickstarter released. FB sessions are my cook log book (though I really need to invest the time and energy into something more easily sortable, etc.). Best feature is the repeatable alerts for overnight cooks.

        Geeze Kathryn, I'm tired of your spot on organizational skills. Dang it, now I have to change the names of ALL the cooks in my Fireboard, what a great idea. Thanks a lot

        I do end up changing them and cleaning some up, when I’m scrolling through 200 of them trying to find that Prime Rib I cooked last or such, but usually only update the ones I touch doing the search. I do have a two step cross reference most of the time, I find the photo in my album and look at the date info of the pic to find the Fireboard session. What’s sad is how many food pics are in my photo roll.

      Is this a recent development? I haven’t used my CyberQ since December, but I was looking forward to using it this summer.

        jfmorris - the Pit Pal app was a 3rd party app. BG did not have an app for the Cyberq, (as far as I know). When they upgraded their devices, they came out with their own app. I'm guessing that with no new buyers for their app, Pit Pal stopped offering it...

        That is pretty lousy that BBQ Guru won't support their own older controllers on the newer versions of their own apps. I guess I should consider myself lucky that my 4 AA battery powered PartyQ doesn't use an app, and still works.

            Sounds to me like the sharemycook web page that Mosca uses still supports the CyberQ - it shows on the top of the page. So while not an app, that should get the job done from any device. Just no notifications or alarms I suppose.
