Not worth money. Wish I could return On my second board and can't stay connected for more than 30 minutes. Great customer service... not. Only open 2 - 6 pm pacific time for wifi. Great idea. Update. With help from GMG and a super dealer Earth Sense Energy Systems in Dale WI I was able to get the WiFi to work properly and told that app will be updated shortly to allow access to the grill from anywhere on just your house
GMG can't find my network. The wifi worked flawlessly at my brother house on his slow network all summer of 2015. I can't tell how many racks ribs we smoked. Took it home to my super fast network reset it and up dated it in Dec. Wifi and point to point to mode worked one time now can't find my network. Gave up on it. Smoker works awesome.!!! Food turns out perfect with the meat probe. Would be cool if the wifi worked again so I don't have to babysit the meat. Will see what version I have maybe 6.0 will fix it.
Catering to Apple...but still love GMG!!! As customer service for GMG/GMD as well as a personal owner, I've come to be absolutely enchanted by my Daniel Boone and its capabilities. Although my grill is non-wifi (for now) I've gotten hands on with a few WiFi controllers. When i learned that server mode was official, i was ecstatic! BUT THEN i realized its only for iPhone at this point. Thing is, i have android. So while everyone else enjoys being able to control their cook from across town, i am here in home WiFi mode
Great grill and app works better with each update I love my GMG smoker and the app is super convenient. There have been a few ups and downs with earlier versions of the app and software, but this grill app combo is incredible and GMG is constantly working to improve the technology for all devices. I'm not aware if any other grill that offers this feature and I couldn't be happier with the food I create and how easy the app makes it. I can't wait for the version that allows monitoring of the grill remotely when I'm away from home.
Dan'l Boone Grill I was a hard sell when looking for a grill, or smoker. Thought about the options, gas, charcoal, pellets. Landed on this. I've done alot of BBQ over the years, enjoying. This one is WAY better than any I've used. It is easy set up from the box to grillin. The only catch was settin up the wireless. I'm not technical, and the app, even was easy to install. Enjoy the cooking.
App still has problems staying connected. When the phone display turns off after 30 seconds of non-use, the app disconnects from the grill. So, when I wake my screen back up, the app has to reconnect to the grill. Pretty annoying that it only stays connected if the screen is on. Otherwise, I like being able to start the warm-up process and set the temp of the grill from my phone while I am getting my meal ready.
Controller calibration with Temperature Adjustment - Requires version 6.0 of the grill firmware.
Also included in the 6.0 Firmware:
Accepts special characters and null passwords.
Detects if disconnected from your Home WiFi and attempts to reconnect up to three times, if unsuccessful, reverts to PtoP mode.
Changes to prevent switching to 5GHz networks during broadcast to client mode switch.
If you have any issues, please contact support. Server mode coming soon!
