Bottom line is, they are a down to earth local business that take their product and their customers seriously>>> This is a rare thing during this upsidedown culture of ours.

I agree, they are about 3hrs from me. Seams like they are a fairly small company and fairly new. I hope they got my email in time but even if they didnt. Im excited to get it and try it this weekend.

I think you'll be satisfied with what was sent.
I may order a couple competition probes at a later date, but I am satisfied with the ones I have.

The stock probes are fine, I just passed the connector thru the side port instead of the probe, especially if I had a few probes in. It's a bit dicey when the grill is really hot to pass things thru the smallish port, but do-able.

Like I said Timmy, get a spare $17 here or there and order the comp probes, you're fixed for life

Received my FireBoard 2 yesterday and did a cook today using a food and ambient probe. So much better than the Traeger built-in probe which had to be recalibrated at the start of each cook. Set the grate clip with the ambient probe between two meats. I didn't realize the actual temp of my Timberline 1300 was approximately 10 degrees from what the grill reads.

I will now use the FireBoard 2 on all my cooks

How do you re-calibrate the timberline grill probe ( not the meat probe the grill probe), I just updated to a 1300. I have a FireBoard 2...

Unfortunately you can not recalibrate the grill temp probe. I have had my Pro 780 since June this year and last week purchased the Fireboard 2. Other members on the site have recommended making a map of what the grill reads and what the Fireboard reads . Then set temp to said map on the grill and use the Fireboard for actual temp. I havent done this yet but am going to soon. So far my grill reads 20 to 30 degrees off. 325f on grill is 300f on Fireboard. I wold think that Taeger could do better than this.

I wasn't referring to recalibrating the ambient temperature grill probe. I was referring to the meat probe that plugs into the control unit. The Meat probe needs to be recalibrated before each cook in order to get a close food temperature reading on my 1300

So it sounds like we still need a Temperature map to get the Grill to run at the temperature that we set it to (Yes I really want 165 or 350. The problem is Non Linearity....

not only is each rig different but the inside of your rig varies by up to 25°F from side to side... so you would need to learn your internal also
