    Unfortunately it's blue tooth so you can't get too far. I wonder if there's a way to share it on the icloud? If so you could connect it to another device at home and view it from your iPhone. I'll have to look at that, don't know how that all works.

    Awesome! Just one more question do your mav probes work with the igrill? Then I could save 20 bucks on the smoker probe.
    Thanks!

    I am not sure. I don't plan on trying either. The last time I did that with a different brand it fried the therm. It comes with two meat probes and that is how I plan on using it. One for the meat one for the smoker. I will say that if you really want the "smoker probe" wait until you get the unit. After I registered iGrill sent me a $5.00 off offer on the smoker probe. I have never had an issue with my other mavs using the meat probe for smoker temp. I have a piece of wood that I drilled holes in that I put the probe through and set on the grate in my GOSM. In the Mini-WSM, I have dedicated holes in the side with grommets for the probed to go through.

    I was at Pork in the Park over the weekend, and stumbled across the iGrill booth. 80 bucks including the smoker probe. I couldn't resist! Can't wait to try it out this weekend!!

    Hopefully yours works as good as mine has! Of all the digital therms I've owned, this one has been the most accurate right out of the box. The alarm settings are great too. I still use my Mav 732 mainly because I usually need three to four probes. I know the accuracy of the iGrill is better!

    So does it link to an iPhone or iPad. We are totally offline and do not use computers or internet service, or wifi.

    Not being a big "I whatever" fan this looks interesting. 

    I read the instructions and it states the default IP is 192.168.10.10. Can this be changed or does it have DHCP??  Many would not want to change their entire home network just to facilitate one device.

  9. Pretty sure that's the static address of the wGrill? Meaning, put that address in the line of explorer, safari, firefox browsers and it should show up on your wi-fi network? I looked at that and for the price it looks like a good match for me? Hoping some else will order and report back their findings?

    I'm wi-fi ignorant mostly, so what I'm saying is most likely wrong!

    That's the default IP. I'm sure you can set a static ip or dhcp. But your right type the ip in your browser and you should hit the device.
    My wireless is spotty in my backyard so Bluetooth should work well. I'll find out this afternoon!

    I hope the igrill works better for yall than it did for me. I used it 3x in the month I had it. i had constant connectivity issues. The last day I used it it would not connect for about 6 hrs, i finally just got my cheap $15 therm out. The same day probe 2 went out and started reading about 150* too high. I do have a droid so maybe yall will have better luck with an iphone. It looked like a very cool product. I replaced it with an daul probe maverick and so far seems to work much better.

    So far mine has been working great. I've used it for every smoke since I got it. I can walk all around and still stay connected. No probe problems yet. I have had to replace two probes on my Mav 732, one was bad right out of the box.

    As far as I can tell the battery life is decent. Not as good as the Mav. With that said, I did leave it on all night accidentally. I have about 150-170 hours of use and am at 40% battery power.
     
  13. After reading all this, I bit the hook.  As stated above AT&T on-line shows out of stock, and everywhere I looked they were $79.99.  So I held off, and kept looking for a better deal.  That was two weeks ago.  I went back on line to check AT&T and it still showed out of stock, but when you click on the item, I chose the black model, a new page comes up that will ask you if you want to check to see if your local AT&T has it.  Well what do you know, two of my local AT&T store had it in stock.  I picked it up yesterday.  Sticker on the box said $25 off and I walked out the door with it for $63.  Can't wait to get the smoker fired up this weekend.  Happy Memorial Day everyone.  [​IMG]

    I really like mine. Was spot on accurate right out of the box. I hope that yours preforms as good as mine does. The graphing feature is fun to look at.

    The graph is where it's at! Especially when you know your tank is about to die. Just keep an eye on the graph it will let you know quick!

  18. Finally got to use it this past Tuesday and I must say I am quite impressed.  Everything mentioned above is true, accuracy right out of the box and a lot of functionality.  After registering got the email for the $5 off and will use it for the ambient probe.  We cooked a 7# standing rib roast, two boneless butts, and 3 racks of pork loin ribs.  Probed the roast and the butts.  Got the IGrill paired to my IPad2 and we were off to the races.  I particularly like the ability to switch the display size to a larger format.  Both temps displayed on the IPad full screen, so I could glance over to it from 30 or so feet and keep an I on things will I worked on re-wiring my electric hoist.  The app for the IGrill is very good and contains many useful features.  I like the graph display and the ability to set the multiple alarms easily.  Everything turned out perfectly.  The rib roast was exceptional,  took it off at 130,  left the probe in it (wrapped in foil) and served it when it got to 137.  Sorry no Qview it was a cook/work day.

    Ice Daddy I'm glad it worked out for you too.
    I've been using mine every smoke and l love it. We'll be getting an iPad soon and I can't wait to have the larger screen.

    One thing I learned is once you have it connected just let it run. I turn off the screensaver so the connection stays active. Sometimes it's a pain to reconnect.
