    That just might be the coolest grill accessory that I have seen since the 2cycle Blender. But HOLY CRAP 300.00. I will have to save for that. It is almost unreasonable. :S

    It should be CAT6 instead of USB. Most people's home PC's are not real close to their grills.

    Control Interface setup guide:
    Chapter 5 describes the five PC hookup options, last option (5.5) is how to setup for monitoring/control via internet.

    There are a few cool wireless USB systems out there that overcome that problem.

    Bob, that's precisely my concern, spend another $100+ to overcome the USB's 15-ft limitation by connecting the base and remote units of the booster with a 100-150ft standard CAT5/CAT6 LAN cable. Why not have a builtin NIC (network interface card) and webserver (like the Stoker?) so a CAT5/CAT6 cable can be plugged into it directly? It'll also eliminate the need for special software such as PC Anywhere (more $ and setup) for internet access.

    Don't get me wrong, it's probably better than the Stoker in many ways, except for the PC/internet capability.

    If Bob's still running around, I'd love to see a guru that does or does not control the blower but also takes inputs from 3-5 meat probes with a display for all of them with different temp alarms. I would buy that in an instant.
