Remote control for your Big Green Egg!
Remotely manage and monitor cooking temperatures, monitor the temperature of your food, view graphs of your cooks and receive alerts when your cook is finished or when the EGG temperature is too high or low.

The EGG Genius app works with an EGG Genius WiFi Temperature Controller to:
• Control the device through your smartphone, tablet or computer to remotely manage and monitor the internal temperature of the EGG
• Monitor the temperature of your food; view graphs of your cooks
• Receive alerts when your cook is finished or when the EGG temperature is too high or low
• Quickly reach your desired cooking temperature as the blower ramps up to fan the lighted charcoal; once the desired temp is reached, the variable speed blower automatically adjusts the blower speed to optimize the set temperature.
• Automatically lowers the pit temperature to keep your food warm when the cook is complete.
• Detects the sudden temperature drop from opening the dome and turns the fan off temporarily to avoid over-stoking the fire.
• In the case of a power outage, the unit continues running at the saved set temperature and reconnects to the WiFi network automatically when power returns.
• Use up to 3 meat probes at once – additional meat probes with Y-cable can be purchased separately.
• Powered by Flame Boss®

OK but pales against the competition

Let’s get this out of the way— it does the job. You can keep a relatively even pit temperature and achieve a relatively consistent cook.

But I see a lot of issues with this app— namely, I frequently encounter disconnects from my controller that are clearly not due to my wifi setup (I have enterprise trade ubiquiti access points across the house). Also, there’s not really a way to customize stages of a cook. Eg; “do X until we hit temperature Y then do this other step”.

Also, the probes on the egg genius are very inaccurate (measured against an NIST calibrated thermapen reference) compared to other thermistor based probes.

I guess for the price it’s not awful.

But for a bit more the Fireboard 2 is a much less bug free experience with more customization and vastly more accurate hardware.

Great product horrible software

My son has one of these and struggled to get it set up after an hour but after he did it works like a charm.
He got me one for my birthday in April 2021 and I have yet to be able to set it up. Every single time I try the software this uses decides to disconnect. My son spent 4 hours today fighting with the software for it to fail to connect to the internet each time.
Fix your software and fire the team that wrote what it currently uses
