The Flame Boss® app for iOS lets you monitor and control your cooks with any Flame Boss WiFi smoker controller. You can:
-View graphs of current and saved cooks
-Change the set temperature for pit and meat
-Text alert configuration
-Enable or disable pit and meat alerts
-End cooks directly
-Share your cooks on Facebook and Twitter
-Enable an automatic warming temp when the finished meat temp is reached
-Add, edit and update personal cook titles and notes for future reference
-Change device pin and remove shared access with other users
The Flame Boss app also works in conjunction with the web-based application available at MyFlameBoss.com.
With version 1.7, you’ll now be able to make cooks private, change device pin and remove shared access with other users. You’ll also automatically be able to add a device to your account after completing WiFi setup, as well as end cooks directly and configure text alerts. Additionally, the iOS app now has sound.
Ratings and Reviews
Love it. Use it all time time.
I agree with other reviewers: it could use some improvements to the audio notifications (texts are nice, but prefer an in app message), should update without having to leave Cook and reenter, but that’s an easy workaround. Also end cook button in the app would be once(it’s on the website now). I’d also like to be able to see temps on the graph lines instead of just time.
Having said all that. It’s awesome. Beautiful. Easy to use. I love having the cook history to see what happened last time. I’ve done 18 cooks in a year with this app and I can go back and check the graphs of each one each one very easily. Going to keep on cooking too.
Great product but room for improvement
Like others, my top requests would be to refresh the page so we don’t have to exit and renter to get an update and to add temperature along with the time display when I touch the graph. A different request would be to give us the options if multiple cooks in a day. It seems there is no way to “end” a cook. While I look forward to the next release, I am loving the ability to maintain temperature with such accuracy as well as the history and notes. Keep up the great work!
Oh, and please add the ability to name the probes! Thanks.
A few bugs to note. When reopening the app the live cook won’t update until you go back to the main menu and deselect the cook. Also the app crashes sometimes when opening the app after it was running in the background. Finally the audio notifications don’t work. Please also add ability to end cook in the app. Also please add the ability to show historical temperature on he trend when dragging a slider across the trend similar to the web version.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
