Description

Bring your Green Mountain Grill into the 21st century with our grill management app. This app utilizes WiFi technology and has a range of up to 40 meters in point to point mode. You also have the ability to connect your grill to your home network in WiFi Mode and to our cloud based system in server mode. You can create grill profiles, monitor meat temps, set timers and alarms, and adjust grill temps from inside your home or anywhere. We have recently added calibration tools to calibrate both air temperature and probe temperatures. Stay tuned for updates and additional features on future releases.

For best results use Firmware 6.7 or later. To check your firmware, use our support page: http://greenmountaingrills.com/support/

---------------------

The first ever internet connected BBQ is here! We have officially launched Server Mode for the WiFi enabled line of Green Mountain Grills. Connect your Davy Crockett, Daniel Boone and/or Jim Bowie pellet grill to our servers to control/monitor your grill from a cellular network.

Your firmware must be at least 6.0+ in order to use server mode.

*Note: Requires updated WIFI controller for use with grills built before 8/1/14

Good in theory

I keep getting kicked off server mode. Then I have to leave server, connect to wifi, connect to grill, then join server again. Works on and off. Did everything support said. Still disconnects. Brand new wifi board and Grill is 6 feet from wifi btw. App also seems unfinished. Cant turn it on from work so it's hot when I get home to immediately start grilling. Cant toggle between point to point mode and wifi mode. Can't see what newest firmware is without updating and downloading to grill. Takes a while. Should alert that I already have the latest version first. Profiles could be good and are definitely the best part of the wifi feature. ***Update***

I have been using this for a while now and, when home, works fine. None of the support suggestions work. Still disconnected on server mode when gone from home. WORSE YET, it does not background refresh. Only when I actually OPEN the app does it tell me that I have "reached target temp". This could take forever, really forever, if I don't actually open the app. Please fix. All permissions open for this app. It's a bug.

Hi Ohwell, we don't allow starting remotely because it is a fire hazard to start the grill without physically confirming it is safe. It is required by the insurance company. We do not show a list of available firmware because we are offline in PtoP mode. You can view the latest firmware at www.greenmountaingrills.com/firmware-changelog. If you are in Server Mode, you should get a push notification to alert you when the grill is up to temperature, it sounds to me that you are using WiFi mode and not Server Mode. Please review our guides online.

Sad Excuse for an App. Developed by Perverts.

This app is about 20% complete, but somehow was released anyhow. You have about as good of a chance to get a temp notification as you do to have Willie Nelson play your birthday under a double rainbow. They simply don’t appear. It’s not an iOS issue nor a user configuration error it’s simply laziness on the part of the developer. It’s not the user’s responsibility to play with silly settings or reinstall the app each time you use it. Would you accept it if the Gmail app needed to be reinstalled each time you receive an email?

This app inexplicably has a pervy location permission. In a response to another review, the developer claims that the grill cannot be started via server mode because of an “insurance company” and safety reasons. Mmmhmm. Of course, the real reason is probably due to lack of skill on the dev team. Regardless, with location enabled they know without question where the app is being used. They, of course, don’t have GPS in the grill so the grill could be halfway around the world. Knowing location isn’t used for safety reasons, the only other possibilities are that pervert developers want to use location to track potential, probably female, victims or to sell your location to sleazy third parties. Both are completely unacceptable.

Location permissions are required by Apple to retrieve your current WiFi network, which we require to detect if you're on the Grill's network or your home WiFi network and connect accordingly. We do not use, store or track your location data. We prevent remote starts by detecting where the network requests originate, not using your location.

Ridiculous requirement that WiFi can’t have special characters

Just bought this grill, one of the biggest selling points was the ability to connect via WiFi...and paid a premium for it no less. Turns out the developers who made this app can’t figure out how to allow the app to properly communicate to a WiFi network if either the SSID has spaces or special characters, or if password uses any special characters. This means you have you have a WiFi setup with a password that only contains numbers & letters.

I spoke with the company App Support and they confirmed this is not possible yet every other app on the AppStore that requires you connect to smart device via adhoc network then join your home WiFi network has this capability. Nest, every doorbell camera app, etc., these all do the same thing to connect yet work perfectly fine with an actual secure password.

The recipe section is completely broken, the app will not allow you to scroll so you literally cannot see anything past the initial screen making that section completely useless. The other reviews have noted you cannot background the app if connected to WiFi because Apple will not allow this, wait what?
