Kamado Joe® iKamand™ Smart Temperature Control and Monitoring Device for Classic Grills in Black
About this deal
Never exceed thermometer’s maximum temperature rating. This is possibly the number one killer of a digital grill thermometer! It takes the information given it (food and pit temperatures) calculates time and optimal temperature for food to reach the proper doneness. And so many things can change the temperature: Diminishing charcoal, external air temperature, quality of smoker (e.g., does it leak?), or trouble figuring out the air vent settings. Each temperature probe is made of industrial-grade platinum and are rated to work in temperatures up to 475
About its business’ is our first impression of this controller, though it does sleeker and more ‘designed’ than its predecessor the flame boss 300. Wouldn’t it be nice to have the stable temperature control of an indoor oven outdoors in your smoker? Well, you can. Keep probes clean. Dirt can have an insulating effect and cause lower-than-true readings. This leads to the grill being too hot and your food is more likely to become overcooked. In the 2000s, the first automatic temperature controllers (ATCs) for BBQs and smokers were created to manage the temperature of both pit and food throughout the cooking process. It supports one pit probe, and one food probe, has the same online dashboard for graphs and history of your cooks, and alarms and alerts like its larger cousin, the 500.The Flame Boss 500 is their flagship model. it is a Wi-Fi capable temperature controller, allowing management from a distance over any network.
It plugs into an outlet and monitors the pit temperature, as well as a single probe for monitoring meat temperature, too.Flame Boss and BBQ Guru were created by engineers, so right off the bat, there’s some assurance of products built to do what they do, incredibly well. The controller can be used standalone, with all settings able to be made on the unit, and info displayed on an LED display. It supports one pit probe, and up to 3 food probes natively though this can be expanded. Help is needed for your smoker or grill to have the steady, consistent temperature required for consistent cooking, because temperatures can fluctuate by 10s or even hundreds of degrees, depending on the grill and the environment. Based on the readings from the probes, the device directs the speed of the fan to control the ambient temperature inside the cooker, by controlling the amount of oxygen given to the fire. The joy of smoking can go horribly wrong if the temperature isn’t consistent throughout the smoking process.
