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®

Ratings and Reviews
For the first few uses it worked fine. Now when I attempt to establish a direct connection there are no controls in the app available after connection is made. I have updated my phone and ensured I have the latest update for the app to no avail. I have even tried on two different phones with the same result. To make matters more frustrating when I give up and try to use it in cloud mode I get an error message that my user name and password are incorrect. I tried to reset my password but don’t receive the promised email to reset the password. To be sure I tried to set up a new account with the same email and am notified that my email is already registered to an account. So I have no way to access my account. At this point my EGG Genius is utterly useless. Flame Boss’s support line is available Monday thru Friday which does me no good since today is Saturday and I have a long cook planned. BGE customers are fiercely loyal because of the reliability of their products. It is disappointing that this product would be so uncharacteristically unreliable.****Update****. I contacted flame boss and their support team assisted me in getting things going. It turns out my email had not be linked to my account. Once I was able to log in on cloud mode all functionality returned and I’m back in business. The flame boss support guys were very helpful. I would suggest anyone encountering problems contact them.

Works as it should...
Not sure why all the bad reviews, but I purchased this anyway. Glad I did! Super simple to set up. Plugged in and found my WiFi network quickly. App found the controller and I was off cooking my first turkey on the Egg. Probably less than 5 minutes to set up the first time. It does take 20-30 seconds to refresh the temp data when you want to check your status - but that did not bother me at all. This also may have something to do with proximity to the WiFi router.
App was easy to use and intuitive. Change temp settings for Egg and food and let it go. I did set up a warning to see if it would alert me when the temp was too high, but I did not get an alert when temp spiked up early on in my cook. That was my only issue and only reason I didn’t go with 5 stars.
I did end up with a 5-star turkey though! I don’t think you’ll be disappointed with the Egg Genius.
