Good morning Smokingdents! No, you don't have to buy the remote boss to get the current firmware version.

If you're registered your grill with us, we can send you an update module to get the program updated. However, there is currently a waiting list for the update modules, so it might be a few weeks before we can get one to you. The quicker option would be to send us your Pellet Boss board with a note that you'd like to be updated, we can update the software here, and send it back to you the next day.

Just give us a call (503-623-1234) or drop us an email ([email protected]), and we can get you on the list for an update or give you more instructions for getting your Pellet Boss to us!
