    Yes sir, mine has been ordered.   Neighbor has one for use in his stick burner and loves it.   Why not give it a go...

    Just an FYI for anyone that grabbed this deal, I received mine Saturday and paired it.   Today I'm doing a butt so when I took it out and opened the app it told me it needs a software update that takes 8-10 mins.    Not a big deal but wanted to let folks know.

    I used mine yesterday and it didnt update. Really like it but I had to keep the wooden charger box right next to my grill or it would lose connection. I was cooking in my PK which is thick aluminum so that may have been why.

    Got mine Saturday too, but haven’t used it yet.  Thought I would today, but ended up using my controller.  I look at the drawer I have full of all these meat probes/thermometers and think, that used to be money.  🥴

    btw, they are back to 100 bucks.

    Interesting.  I can go up to about 30-40 feet with mine and it's fine.  If I through my protein in my cast iron DO the block does need to be significantly closer.

    Maybe that's what the update's for?    No clue at all, but I went a decent ways away from mine...probably 150' and it was solid.    I do have the repeater box about 10' away from the probe, albeit in the wrong direction from where I went.

    I like seeing the algorithm get a work out, my times were all over the place until it really locked in.   Good thing I'm on an 8hr smoke.

  • Anyone having trouble getting the MEATER box to pair with the probe? I only get a blinking red light.

    You have to let it charge for 4 hours first. I had the same issue then read the instructions.
  • @Lit gotcha. I thought that could be the issue after reading instructions but the battery thing showed full. I will let it charge for 4 hours and give it another shot. Thanks for the heads up.

  • Well I let it charge a few hours and it’s connecting now with no issues. User error is par.

    I really like my Meater+.  One of the few items I have purchased that surpassed my expectations.  It is not without its quirks, but overall it lived up to the hype.  (Except range, I have to be careful where I put the wooden box).
    If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing.

    I keep the box by the grills when in use.  The meater cloud relays to my phone, thanks to good wifi I stay connected no matter where I go in the house

    Anyone else having trouble charging their Meater +?   I've used mine 3x in the short time I've had it but when I went to use it last night for a beer can chicken the app told me it wasn't charged.    Weird, hard to screw up how you seat it back in the wood box.    

    For grins, just now, I pulled it out and it's fully charged.   Not sure what to think, it's not a battery issue since it's charged now and  I clean the probe well after every use so there is no issue with residue.

    You need to scrub the flat metal end.  It will get covered in smoke residue and not charge well.  I use a scotch brite pad.

    Agree with Ozzie. It’s important to keep the top clean. Scotch bright and some Dawn and you are good to go.
