    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...

    What's next? A pellet pooper?

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

      If you had a George Foreman grill, what would you likely name it? George Foreman VII

      He got the Pro. Is there a Pro Drive?

      Dewesq55 - the Pro is Drive.

      RonB - Thanks for the response. I did not know that. Cool.

    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.

      Congrats. No interest in their newer UltraQ?

        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.

        fzxdoc That's a great idea! I'm going to start doing that for my FB sessions & copying them into Word or Excel.

        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...

        Mosca - yours might still work. If you try it, let us know how it goes...

        I’m using an app called ShareMyCook.

      I use my BBQ Guru fan with the FB Drive. It works great.

        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.

              Did you buy from FireBoard or a reseller?

              Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

              We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

              Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


              The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

              Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
              Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

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


              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.

              GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The InfraredZone


              GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.

              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 because temperature control is so much easier.
