Fireboard Announcement

Its finally here. Those of you on the fence or waiting, get your Fireboard. I'm pretty pumped about the fan capabilities. I'll be ordering soon for sure!

  • So is it held in by that metal spring? Won't that break or warp in the fire?

    Not sure if that fan is for the egg. The cable is compatible with about any blower on the market. It was designed to be brand agnostic from what I understand.

    That's some premium pricing on that cable and fan.

    Add the price of a Fireboard/Fan cable/blower and you're getting into Stoker territory.

    What a poor way to attach the fan. If that's all there is to the fan, that's sad. If that's the best I could develop, It just wouldn't release it.

    I wonder if you could use a stoker fan and bracket with it instead?

    You can use any fan and egg bracket if I'm not mistaken. So long as the input plug is the same.

    $90 is kinda pricy for a cable, granted it has some brains built into the barrel plug end.

    Looks like it can control two fans.
    If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing.

    One of the plugs is for 12v input. I guess in case you are running a really long cook and don't want to deplete the Fireboard internal battery.

    The Fireboard isn't used solely by backyard bbq'ers. Some industrial/commercial users have a need for accurate/certified readings.

    Thermoworks also offers a calibration certificate for an extra fee for some of their products.

    Fair enough. 

    I would agree with you; in that when you start buying everything in the package you're well on your way to a Stoker price wise. I watched their YouTube video and it seemed like a decent product. But, for me it's not something I would throw down the bones for. I already did that with the Stoker and it's far more expandable. Maybe others will be interested though. But, as technology develops doesn't it typically become more affordable?  Is the biggest benefit being able to use any manufacturers draft motor blower or having an App?  What's the Wow factor here?
