    Grilla Alpha Connect

    I got the upgrade a few weeks ago and it is pretty slick. I didn't document the installation but it went pretty quickly. Since then the only thing I have used is the Chimp. The connect doesn't graph or save cooks like the fireboard, but it works like a champ. I monitored a cook from my office downtown, changed the temps and set some alarms. Here is a shot of the interface

    I am really tempted to get rid of the WSM and replace it with an OG.

    I just upgraded my OG with the new Alpha Connect and, like you, experienced no issues with the installation. I could probably have lived without it … but MCS might have killed me . Regardless, the new controller takes the OG to a new, higher level.

      I’m with you, my friend. For a number of reasons, I now depend entirely on my Weber Gasser plus OG combo for all my outdoor cooking. I think that an OG plus kettle would be even better. Go for it!

      If burn restrictions weren’t such a local PITA around here, I’d probably have a Weber 26” out back, too. In fact, I just might have to make it happen.

      I got an OG, 22” Kettle and 28” Blackstone. I don’t see me needing anything else.

      The call has faded somewhat. I was in Ace the other day and it was so faint I could hardly hear it.

    Not sure if you all had it before but I love the pause function. It’s so nice not getting heat spikes after opening up the door.

      I am glad y'all are enjoying the app. It looks like Grilla knocked it out of the park again. I hope to join you someday!

        Very impressed with Grilla so far.

          Yup. Me too. What’s the pause feature do?

            Basically tells the controller to ignore the next five minutes so you can open the lid without creating a temp spike. Damn smart.

          Do any of you have issues with the app closing if your phone screen is turned off for a period of time? With mine, the app reboots if I leave the screen off for a while or switch to other apps.

            I have not experienced this issue. I use an Android.

            I have not had that problem. When I first connected it it lost the wi fi signal a couple of times, but it corrected itself and I haven't had any problems since. Android.

          Never had an issue with the iPhone app since I’ve had my grill since April.
