    I also have a 2018. I also had issues with WiFi dropping. Back then, the MAK's controller firmware would drop into "smoke" setting if your WiFi disconnected. This could be particularly problematic...

    I don't think it will fit. Looking at the dimensions, it is smaller than the MAK. The MAK is 19.5" deep, 22" wide and 14" deep. This device is 18" wide by 13" deep. It also says 3" tall, but that...

    Not sure where this question was asked before, but the answer was "do not do it". Apparently the concern is that the FZ cover is not designed to take that direct heat.

    I'm a bit OCD about checking to see if my MAK's setpoint and PB measured temps are "correct". I confess I do this for my home oven, my other smokers/grill/etc. I have a Fireboard 6 port...
