  • Why the oven? I'm replacing mine with a nomex this weekend.You must preshrink the gasket and Fred says that you can do this in the dryer. Well, I tried that in my first attempt and the gasket failed fairly quickly. My guess is that it did not shrink…
  • I replaced using the nomex gasket and have been happy, but had to do it twice. You really need to watch Fred's video. The first time I did it, the gasket did not last very long. I watched the video, realized what I did wrong, redid it and it has bee…
  • I have an idea what may be wrong. I connect without problem, but I also broadcast my SSID as I have some devices that won't connect when it is turned off. I just reset my router to not broadcast the SSID and then attempted to connect with the Stoker…
  • OK. It definitely has to do with the WPA2 Personal Security. When I enabled the guest network on my Time Capsule with no security, the Stoker connected fine and I could access the Stoker page with the system info via my laptop.  WPA2 Personal (which…
  • I have always used a chimney. Works fine and is reliable, but it requires that I either add new charcoal to the egg, or dig the old stuff out and put it in the chimney for lighting. Yesterday, I ran across Diamond fire starters. They were $7 for 48…

  • Can you post some screenshots of the interface so we can get an idea what it does?
  • The press release states that the firmware is delayed another week or two. UPDATE February 1 2012: Thank you very much for your patience. We are working diligently on the WiFi firmware and plan to have it released in one to two weeks. We had undere…
  • I have the Music City Metals grate and I really like it. It is 18" in diameter, just like the standard wire grate. No problem searing or getting grill marks. You can get it on Amazon. It fluctuates in price, but I got it for $40.
  • Chips, yes; chunks, no. There is a video on YouTube where the guy soaked a chunk overnight in water. The next day, he split the wood to see how far in the water soaked. It was about 1/8 of an inch.
  • I have a Stoker on order. The reason that I picked it over the Guru is that I can control it remotely. My daughter was graduating from college and we were having people over after the ceremony for pulled pork. The ceremony ran longer than I expecte…
