Looking forward to your review.  I have also been sitting on the fence about picking this up.

Used it for 2 back-to-back pork butt smokes already. Got it just in time to do 4 butts for a grad party this weekend (my 1st paid gig). Diggin' the fireboard!
I'll def post a review once I get a chance.  Popped for the BBQ extreme version since I really needed 4 meat probes.  They also now have a weatherproof box for it.
Here's a peek at the smoke from last night/today

HeaterMeter is another option (http://smokinitforums.com/index.php?topic=2765.msg22315#msg22315). I've been using mine for 2 years and still love it. It also doubles as a PID temp controller so I can remotely adjust temps up and down with my smart phone or any web browser access. I love this feature when I'm smoking and monitoring things from my workplace.

Rats, keep forgetting to do a review of my fireboard. However, for anyone interested ... here's live data from the temp probes inside my 3D right now as I've got a 9lb butt going :-) https://share.fireboard.io/8002D1

Jason - That was interesting to see how box and meat react to heat over time.  Thanks for posting. David

So Tony - Jason or any others using the Fireboard vs the Thermoworks Smoke. Which one would you still recommend? I will need to monitor 4 to 6 different meat temps.

Walt - Try the search feature. You might be pretty much on your own as to which one to go with. Haven't heard from Tony since April. Jason seems to have the most current experience with th FireBoard.

Sorry, been off the boards for a while ... and I've still not done a writeup on the fireboard. However, I have 2 other friends that now have fireboards as well so I think that tell's ya how much I like mine :-)
