    Inkbird WiFi Bluetooth BBQ Temperature Controller - $139.99 W/coupon

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08DK87Q33...ustomerReviews

    Seems like a pretty good deal, especially with the $60 off coupon on Amazon. Does anyone know anything about this one? I've heard decent things about Inkbird thermometers.

    I am probably one of the few Inkbird fans here. I feel like they are great values for the money and have had no issues.

    The biggest point of confusion I've found is the multiple apps so different devices use different apps. However, I'd agree it looks like a great deal, and if I needed one (already have temp control on my MB560) I'd be all over it.

      Thanks for the feedback! Yeah, this is probably going to be purchased any minute now...

    The concept of that Inkbird is similar to my Party Q, no longer made by the BBQ Guru folks. I.e. an all in one fan and controller unit, except this one attaches with a hose.

    As long as you have a way to attach it to your cooker - i.e. to adapt that fan hose to your kettle or PBC, you should be good. The value on the Inkbird stuff seems good, and I know a few here have one. I just don't know anything about their customer service. I've had Thermoworks stuff that had warranty work when it was 2 years old. Inkbird's website says the 12 month warranty involves returning it to the original reseller. I have never seen Amazon accept returns on something for 12 months myself...

    The customer service and warranty part is what would make me leary of this complicated of a device, that basically falls off the boat from China into an Amazon warehouse. That said, you won't find any other fan controllers at that price point. The closest I know that includes a fan and all the stuff is the DigiQ, from bbqguru.com, and it is $187.

      Another one is the Qmaster Senior controller that runs the same price as the digiq.

    Welp. I decided to pull the trigger. I'll let you all know what I think here in a couple of weeks. I told the wife it would be part of my body present. So, I told her I'd wait. LOL

    I seen a post on another forum that the Inkbird controller is a rebranded BBQUBE according to the BBQUBE owner. However inkbird was integrated with their own App according to Daz (BBQUBE owner)
    A few folks on that forum have BBQUBE and have had success with it and "Daz" seems pretty supportive when issues arise. I doubt inkbirds support will be any less.

      I have the old party q setup or I would look at this. Still too cheap to invest in a Fireboard. I actually went old school this past weekend and ran my WSM without the fan. Just to make sure I could. Some St Louis ribs at 250, ran like a dream for the 5 hours it took.

        Only 3 probes would be a deal breaker for me. But other than that, it looks like an interesting unit at a very good price with the coupon

          Despite my impressive collection of Inkbird smart thermometers, I looked at this device many times and couldn't figure out why I needed it.
