Easily control the temperature of your charcoal or wood fired smoker. Plugs into the auxiliary port on your FireBoard and designed to work with most fans! 12V power adapter included.
Fan & FireBoard sold separately.
The Drive Control Cable is required in order to connect a fan to FireBoard 1 or FireBoard 2. It is not required for FireBoard 2 Drive or FireBoard 2 Pro as the fan can be directly connected to those units.
FireBoard Drive manages your BBQ’s temperature while you relax or prepare food!
FireBoard Drive utilizes a smart logic controller to fine-tune the temperature in your grill or smoker and can adapt to changing conditions.
The FireBoard connects via WiFi to our FireBoard Cloud servers, allowing you to monitor temperature and control Drive setpoints remotely via your phone or the web.
Set up alarms to notify you via App or Email notification when your target temperatures are reached.
FireBoard Drive controls the airflow to your coals from 0-100% for efficient, stable temperature control.
Use the FireBoard fan or connect any 12V fan with 2.5mm barrel plug
Control your temperature with either Bluetooth, Wifi, or manual setting on the LCD screen. If your connection is lost, the settings are saved and it will still continue to control your fire.
Power your FireBoard Drive fan with either the rechargeable Li-ion battery or the included power adaptor. Battery run time depends on type of fan and fan power.
The FireBoard Drive Fan can be attached to many types of grills or smokers.
We strive to provide a high quality product. We also stand by our product and to that end, we have extended our initial six (6) month warranty period to twelve (12) months on the FireBoard Thermometer (“Product”).
This warranty ensures that the Product is free from defects and workmanship. If the Product fails to conform to this Limited Warranty, FireBoard will repair or replace the unit at its own expense.
Of course, as with any warranty, certain situations are not covered under our warranty. These situations include but are not limited to: modifications, use outside rated specifications, and general abuse/misuse. FireBoard reserves the right to inspect equipment before resolving any warranty claims.
All FireBoard temperature probes are covered by a six (6) month warranty period. Due to the extreme conditions most of the temperature probes perform in, it naturally becomes difficult to extend a longer warranty. The same limitations apply to the six (6) month warranty with respect to probe misuse or outside FireBoard’s probe specifications.
It should also be noted that this warranty only applies to FireBoard equipment purchased directly from us or one of our authorized dealers.
If the equipment is under warranty, we will inspect the equipment and determine the nature of the issue. If the repairs are under warranty, we will repair or replace the equipment free of charge and send it back to you in a timely manner. Remember, probes include a six month warranty and the FireBoard unit and accessories include a one year warranty.
We strive to make all repairs in a timely manner. We also aim to price any repairs that are outside the scope of warranty work as reasonably as possible in an effort to support our customers.
For all warranty related claims or questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The standard thermistor probes and cables that come with the FireBoard are rated from -18° to 300°C (0°F to 572°F).
The K-type thermocouples supplied with the FireBoard 2 Pro are able to withstand extreme temperatures of up to 760°C (1400°F).
The FireBoard unit itself is rated to 60°C (140°F) but in our laboratory testing, we believe the device should withstand temperatures in excess of this rating. Despite those tests, certain components used within the FireBoard are only rated up to 60°C (140°F).
Yes, the FireBoard also works over Bluetooth (direct to phone).
The FireBoard should take between 4 – 6 hours to charge. The charging and power behavior of the FBX11 is similar to a cell phone, where the device can be powered from USB and also recharge at the same time. The device will automatically turn on when it is plugged into USB Power.
The FireBoard’s Li-Ion rechargeable battery should last approximately 24hours.
Yes, the FireBoard 2 series models (FBX2, FBX2D, FBX2K) are all weather resistant, but not waterproof. The technical definition of water resistant is that it is able to resist the penetration of water to a certain degree, but not entirely.
The FireBoard 1 (FBX11) unit itself is not weather resistant; while it does perform well in many conditions, if you anticipate rain or heavy moisture we recommend the FireBoard Case.
No the FireBoard 2 Drive & Pro have built in Drive technology, so they can power a fan directly via the 2.5mm port.
Yes! Every FireBoard (all models) has a built in aux port and the Drive Cable can be used to power a fan.
Not at the moment, but this might be a feature developed in the future via an OTA firmware update.
Yes, the USB-C port is PD (Power Delivery) enabled which means it can shift into a 12V power input, providing plenty of power to run the fan at 100% and also keep the FireBoard 2 running and charged for longer cooks.
The Pro model will be using Type K Thermocouple probes, which provide several key advantages. Type K probes are robust and heavy duty, perfect for rugged use. The connector is also very strong, providing a stable pathway for reading temperature from the probe. Thermocouples can read high temperatures, far higher than thermistors, which is ideal for pizza ovens, wood stoves, or general cooking at higher temperatures. Since Type K Thermocouples are standardized, any Type K probe can work with FireBoard 2 Pro.
