SMOBOT Robotic Smoker Grill Controller

Editor's Rating
4.8?
Discovered on 2017-03-17

Get your food right every time when you use the SMOBOT Robotic Smoker & Grill Controller. Compatible with most Kamado style smokers, SMOBOT controls the temperature inside – freeing you up to do other things. SMOBOT robotically adjusts the damper to maintain the temperature you choose. This smart device knows when and how to adjust to ensure your grill remains on temperature, for hours and hours if need be. In addition, SMOBOT uses little power as it only moves the damper when an adjustment is required. The device replaces the factory daisy wheel on your grill and installation is a cinch as it uses only one single screw. Amazingly, SMOBOT has a typical accuracy of +/-5F to your set temperature. SMOBOT connects using WiFi so you can monitor your cooking remotely via the free cloud service and apps. SMOBOT works with all the big brands including Big Green Egg, Kamado Joe, and Primo Ceramic Grills.

Hi Jonathan, Alarms should be available around the end of the month, maybe sooner if we can get the feature finished up. You will be able to send an alert to any email address including the one for your cell phone. Mobile apps are taking longer than expected, but we hope to have them available by the end of the year. Thanks for your support.

When will the mobile apps be available? I hate having to use my Maverick probe to alert me when things go wrong. It would be nice to get the features that were promised.

Hi Art, Thanks for checking in. We just got the Akorn adapters yesterday. We need to run them through a quick test to make sure everything fits and works well and then we will be shipping out the rewards. Give us about 10 days to get through all the final testing. Best Regards,

Up and running, BBQ test with SMOBOT works great. Webpage I will be more developed with more custom settings in the future. Profile and settings seams not to work in safari, can't access. Question the power pack 1000 mAh how long time will that keep the SMOBOT operating?

Hey guys, the beta manual has some REALLY out of date information in it. I will try to scrub through it and correct it over the next couple of days and get it posted. Thanks,

Hi Smoboters,
Just want you to know Curtis and Eric got back to me strait away and sorted my problem nothing wrong with Smobot or Web site all working fine.
Just want to make anyone aware when I put App on my works IPhone I was putting my home email instead of my works email now all okay.
On the Smobot forum there is a link for the Smobot Manual this is worth downloading to refer to later.
Just done my firs Cook on trial run couldn't resist it, Goose Seasond inside and out SPG stuffed with Chopped Orange,Onion,Apple, Smobot ran flawlessly.
Will post photo when I figure out how to. Thanks Curtis and Eric.

Hi Eric & Curtis
I am having trouble connecting to Wifi as Mark Flower is having. I have managed to connect to my home Wifi but cannot connect when out with my iPhone. I can use iPhone and iPad when home but cannot open the http://192.168.4.1 address bar.
Been pulling my hair out last few days.

Review from Kickstarter
Is anyone having trouble connecting to WIFI? Im trying to get my SMOBOT connected to Controller. The WIFI on Controller is lit up but the damper not moving. Also, on my computer it said there was a WIFI update not sure if it was for controller or the cloud software. I did do that but not sure if thats the cause of my problem. I think you should have some videos showing how to set up on computer what to look for ETC. I'm pretty Computer savy and at a loss at this point if its me or the controller.
Curtis please help.

Hi Duncan, The outside of your Kamado Smoker doesn't get nearly hot enough to melt the servo wire. We have used ours on cooks upwards of 400 degrees without any issues. If you are doing an overnight cook, I assume you are in the 200-300 range which is plenty cool. Good luck! Hope it goes well. Best Regards,
Curtis

Doing my first smoke overnight tonight (pork shoulder) and I had a question about the rubber-coated wire between the damper and the Smobot device... Since the wire rests/lays on the lid of the smoker, are there any concerns with the surface heat melting the coating on the wire?

Review from Kickstarter
Hi Curtis - Got mine today, and got the software/internet piece running easily. Planning on smoking a big piece of pork to morrow (Sunday). A quick question: how can I buy additional thermocouples (grill temp sensors) and food temp sensors? (always like to have couple sets on-hand) thanks .... dan

Hi Dave, Glad you got your SMOBOT and are up and running! With regards to timezone, I have a new version of the mySMOBOT web application I am getting ready to roll out. It has timezone support so it will display times in your local browser's timezone. Best Regards,

Hi Joe, we are working our way through shipping in batches. We are still on target to having the rest of the orders shipped out this week. We would have loved to ship in backer order, but unfortunately the order wasn't imported into the shipping system, so its kinda random when each order gets picked up. We know everyone is anxious and we can't blame you! We're going as fast as we can. Regards,
Curtis

Hey gents - I just wanted to check because I have not received my unit in the mail yet. Is it possible I was missed? The reason I ask is that one of my friends that I suggested take a look received his unit last week - but he joined a few weeks after me ... Anyway, just wanted to make sure my unit was not lost in the mail. Thanks and looking forward to cooking soon. Joe.

There is a set-up sheet enclosed in the SMOBOT box. Is there a users manual available to help in getting to know the various features of SMOBOT for daily use?

HI Robert, Glad you got your shipping notification, we are getting through shipping as quick as we can. The website for viewing your cook data is http://mysmobot.smobot.com. We are working on getting a new version pushed ASAP that has some advanced features and the app will be coming in a couple months. Regards,

Hey Mike, We definitely have plans for a waterproof box as well as the hat for SMOBOT. Right now our efforts are focussed on getting the units out the door (very soon). The box that a few users have had success with is this one: https://www.amazon.com/SOCKIT-21-11155-DRI-BOX-WEATHERPROOF-CONNECTION/dp/B00274SLK8/ref=sr_1_1… Looks to fit the bill. We have some ideas on the hat and will start some prototyping soon. Needs to be able to attach easily to existing SMOBOT dampers and of course not cost a fortune. There are some existing chimney cap designs that can probably be adapted easily. Stay tuned. Curtis & Eric

Are you still thinking about selling a waterproof storage box to use for cooks in the rain and for storage between cooks? Also, any thoughts about an umbrella/hat for Smobot to use in the rain? Thanks in advance for your comments.

Hi team, How should I as a member of Backerclub respond to the survey? I have selected reward A Big Thank You and entered the correct amount in the camping but that level will not give any choice to select item in the survey.

Hi Mike K, We are planning on using USPS Priority mail through "ShipStation". It is the most economical and doesn't have issues with delivery, etc. Shipments will start going out in the next week or two...we are wrapping things up and fixing a few last minute bugs we found during testing. We will ship in batches as fast as we can once we start. Regards,

Hi Rick, I got back from my trip yesterday and still waiting on the surveys to be approved and launched. I'm hoping to hear back today or tomorrow and they will be sent out. They didn't like one of the things I had set up in the configuration. Sorry for the delay. Curtis & Eric

Hi Guys, Any update on the survey and shipping date?
IOT Controls, LLC
Review from Kickstarter
Hi Mike K, Thanks for the question. The handle doesn't have to be removed, we took it off for all of the pictures/video to make it look more clean. the one thing you have to be aware of with the handle, when you set up the SMOBOT, make sure the handle is leaning away from the servo arm. If it leans on the arm, it can hang and not allow the arm to move freely. Other than that, having the handle on there is nice to remove the hot cap when you are done cooking. Regards,
Curtis

Does the BGE spring-handle have to be removed to use Smobot or is just missing from the pictures for clarity?
