    Thanks for the feedback. Our new mesh system(Netgear Nightwawk) might have done a firmware update. It appears now that I can designate the guest as 2.4. Will update here after i get my grill and the solution. I'm like a kid at Christmas, will the grill ever get here....

    Yep, the Alpha Connect, like many IoT devices is 2.4 GHz only. I've got the same issue as you....occasionally some of my systems downgrade themselves to the 2.4 GHz band to my utmost annoyance. Getting a 2.4 GHz only extender is actually an
    interesting solution to that problem (although I already have a dual band extender in place).

    Another thing I've been meaning to do, but I keep forgetting until the grill is turned off is run an nmap scan against it and/or fire up wireshark and see what it is doing.

    It will only connect to a 2.4Ghz network. I’ve got a dual band 2.4/5.0Ghz mesh router setup and it connected right away with no issues.

    Something occured to me that I over looked before buying, won't be a huge deal just more difficulty in setting up wifi and the app. Does Alpha connect require 2.4 or 5.0 ghz band? My new router is not like other brands, im unable to designate a particular band when connecting devices, unlike my older(now dead) router.

    I guess i could always go buy a cheap wifi extender for 2.4ghz devices.

    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.

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

    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.

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

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

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

    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!

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

Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

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.

Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
