Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

I just received a reply email from the president Wireless Alarm Products (nice to know others work on Sunday) and the Model 700 is indeed available now. In fact, I just placed my order at their website and received a confirmation. Supposed to be shipped within 24 hours.[p]The only difference between a man and a boy is the price of the toy!

    Gfw,[p]How much do they get for such a gizmo? We anxiously await a field report![p]Bryan

    Bryan, it sounds like I could have gotten cheaper from one of their dealers - but, in Peoria, you do what you have to do. $69.95 plus $5.00 shipping. No sales tax. Hopefully it will be here by next weekend - we're out of PP again.

    Gfw,
    I have also e-mailed him and gotten several replies. He said mine would go out tomorrow as well and with 2 probes. This sounds neat!! Now I will be able to tell the dome and internal temp of a Butt at 2am when I roll over. He said the probes are replacable at $9 each. They should work well under 300 deg even for dome temps. Since winter is here (63 deg here today) it will be nice if it ever gets too cold to stand outside for long. Pictures and a report when I get it and use it.[p]Tim

    Tim M, it was 60+ degrees in Peoria today -an all time record for Jan 2nd - it sounds like 'Ricjh Sharpe' had a few orders - we've probably made him work on Sunday. I planning on a little PP for next weekend - really hope it arrives. Have a great evening!

  • Tim M,[p]This sounds great, I'm curious about how how you plan to rig this probe with the dome temp. let me know how you do it if possible.[p]Thanks

  • Gfw, I just got a reply from Rich at Wireless Alarm, and the way I understand it, the WAP700 comes with one remote sensor and one probe. We could use the WAP750 along with the 700 to monitor the dome as well as meat temps, but both units only read to 199 degrees. I could be mistaken, but that's how he explained it to me.

    King-O-Coals, I was looking at it purely for the internal temp - at 199 Pulled Pork would be about perfect and I try not to cook beef past the 135-140 degree mark. In fact tonights pork chops came off the grill at 161 -- so the 199 temp, at least for cooking, should work great. Depending upon UPS it should be here Wednesday or Thursday - I hope![p]

  • Gfw, I'm getting one too. Getting up several times a night certainly don't help the drinking mood the following day when the arrival of prime pork is expected. I just wish they could have incorporated a 500 to 800 degree model too. That would definately put us in "high cotton".

    King-O-Coals, the measure of the dome temp would be a greta improvement - I think I'll give them a call tomorrow and suggest a probe that exceeds the 199 mark.[p]In Peoria.. the temp and the snow are falling - predictions are for 3 inches before morning. My next step is to set up a little web camera for my web site. [p]Have a great evening!
