    Flame Boss

    Looking into getting an ATC and was wondering if anyone has had any luck with Flame Boss controllers? I like their claim of simple wifi connection since I am not too computer savvy but don't see a lot of talk about this unit. What are some of the pro/cons?
    Thanks

    JayW,

    First ask your self, "Do you need remote control"? Wi-Fi will let you adjust the Flame Boss with a smart phone from just about anywhere. Your PC/router will have to use port forwarding. Not hard to set up, instruction will be found on the web.

    I have the FB100-U on a 18.5" WSM. Set the temp and forget it. I already had the Maverick ET723 and could view the pit & meat temps anywhere in the house. The variable speed fan is the cat's meow! When the temps are at setpoint put the meat/food into the smoker. In a few minutes the PID controller will have things just dandy. Fan puffs air into the smoker at about 14% of total fan speed. Little chance of ash being blown about. The auto learn feature works. Open lid sensor will turn off the fan in a moment or two. Fan time off is adjustable.

    Good unit,

    Craig H
