  • I just received my Stoker a couple weeks ago. I see that the no longer offer the "old" version and only the WiFi version. In my case I just bought this small WiFi N adapter:…
  • Thermopen and a remote thermometer such as the Maverick ET 732... However, your dealer probably doesn't stock either.
  • That is just a fancy heated storage area for your eggcessories. You can have your plate setter up to temp using the gas heated storage unit.
  • I use this weed burner. Keeps the sparks off and I don't have to worry about it being upside-down and going out.

  • I received my Stoker package yesterday. The end result was about 10 days from clicking submit until it arrived at my door (using the most basic shipping option).
  • This is Costco we are talking about. Everything (except TVs, PCs, iPods...) has a lifetime warranty. The warranty is only limited by how guilty you feel trying to return it for a full refund. However, it will mean that after X years you'll simp…
  • The CyberQ uses a USB port. You have to connect your PC to the CyberQ using USB. On your Droid you would need a remote desktop or VNC app to connect to the PC to view the CyberQ interface. With the Stoker you just need an Ethernet connection or…
  • May I ask when you ordered it and how long it took to arrive? I ordered one on the 16th as a Father's Day and Birthday combo gift. I know it says that it will ship in two to three weeks, but one can hope right? FYI, I purchased one of these for…
  • I live in Kennesaw! Too bad I don't need another large... plus the lack of $1,500.
  • Once my MAPP bottle ran out I tried one of the big green camping cylinders that I've had for years. It works fine. What better thing to use for a Big Green Egg than a Big Green Torch?
  • Sorry, I thought that you had upgraded to DD-WRT when you mentioned your firmware upgrade.
  • Delete that. You don't want a range. Click on the Port Forwarding tab (not range). Port From = 8080 Port To = 80 IP address is of your Stoker.

  • I saw this earlier and did a quick search on Be aware that the reviews for this model are not very good. Check out the Amazon reviews prior to making the jump. FYI, their price is $77.
  • THA wrote: Did I understand that you "put it in a pan of water"? If so, where in the world did that come from? Maybe he thought he was supposed to be "soaking" the meat instead of "smoking" it.

  • I think that it isn't that they don't use metal gears. It is that some models don't use a metal gearbox. The gears get stressed and warp the plastic gearbox. Not that it does you any good, but I found a brand new Viking 5qt mixer on craigslist …
  • I use a Maverick ET-73. It is dual probe and wireless. The unit is waterproof, but it says to not get the cables wet. :huh:

  • I think today is a Woot-off. They sell out of one item and post another until it sells out and then another and another... So you weren't seeing things.
  • Yes, they are Shun. Compare here:
  • You just posted what I was going to say except for one detail. I usually pull mine at 195-200 and usually get the rub on about an hour or so before going on. However, yesterday morning (6am) I woke up to my wireless thermometer reading "---" f…
  • I added Mates after I assembled my large egg. I was dreading removing the strap assembly, but it turned out to be simple. Once the lower strap's bolts are removed there is enough flex in the metal band to remove the bolts. Just secure the hinge…
  • I assume you are wanting to connect to your Stoker using 3G and not your WiFi on your iPhone. If it is WiFi at your house then just connect to your Stoker's IP address on port 80 ( If you are wanting to do this from the internet …

  • If you follow your steps then the fire won't go out. If it drops just fully open both vents and within five minutes you'll be back to where you need to be. Close the vents to where you had them, but leave to lower vent open a hair more than befo…
  • You should shoot for closer to 250 until you get the hang of it. Also, try to maintain 250 for at least half an hour to an hour before adding any food. A Maverick ET-73 wireless smoker thermometer would also help since it would alert you that yo…
