The Best controller on the market Hands down!

The best draft control system on the market. Whether you want to be the king of the neighbor or a competitive cooker like myself, you will not be disappointed by this controller. I have been using Flame Boss controllers on the competition circuit for many years now and will continue to use them. Having a reliable and dependable controller like the Flame Boss to keep the smokers at set point, allows us to focus on other things that we need to take care of while we are competing. While cooking at the house, if we have to take off for any reason, having the accessibility to go to the Flame Boss App and see the cook happening in real time and make any needed temperature adjustments while away, is clutch as well. The customer service is hands down the best on the market as well. If there is an issue, call em up and they will walk you through the set up, as well as any issues you may have and can correct them while you are on the phone.

a very meh experience.

So i've had my Flameboss 500 for some months now, and honestly have not always used it since buying my Weber kettle. You don't really need it on a Weber kettle. Anyhow after several attempts and trying to tweak what i was going to see if i could get it to work, i've had no success. The controller is advertised as "universal" and compatible with Chargriller offset smokers. It is not or at least not with my Chargriller competition pro 8125. If use the controller to heat the griller it never gets above 200. If I heat up the griller first and use the controller to maintain temperature, it causes the temp to fall below 200. Other than the temperature monitoring features, it is a complete waste of money.

Hi Rich. You would need the Flame Boss Drum Smoker Adapter and the Flame Boss Universal Adapter Kit to use the Flame Boss 500 with your smoker. Unfortunately we don't carry the Flame Boss Drum Smoker Adapter at this time, but you can reach out to us through Live Chat or call us at 877-743-2269 to see about ordering it.

Answer:
Hello Nathaniel! Due to the way the Gateway Drum Smokers air intake vents are designed, the Flame Boss smoker controller is unlikely to work as intended and we cannot recommend its use with them.

When will my item arrive?

Once shipped, items usually arrive within 3-5 business days. While UPS and FedEx are our carriers for smaller items, be aware that larger items and orders are shipped via freight. The freight process is a bit more complicated than what we’ve all come to expect for small parcels, so it’s important that you’re prepared and understand what’s required of you well before delivery day.

  • Most freight products ship on a pallet
  • Some carriers will call to schedule a delivery window, while others will deliver the shipment to a reasonably accessible location closest to your residence (their goal is to deliver as near a garage door as they can).
  • We’ll specify which process you can expect in your shipping confirmation email.

For carriers that schedule delivery appointments:

Carriers that schedule delivery appointments require you to be home for delivery and provide your signature. The delivery is made with a semi-truck with lift gate services, and the shipment is dropped off at the curb. If you authorize the shipping company to leave the delivery without a signature, BBQGuys can’t be held responsible for damages that occur during delivery. As complicated as this process may seem, we’ve only scratched the surface here — please review our detailed guide to freight delivery so there are no surprises when a freight shipment heads your way.

For carriers that deliver without an appointment:

Carriers that deliver without an appointment don’t require you to be home or set up a delivery window, and you aren’t required to sign for the pallet(s). Instead of scheduling an appointment, arranging your schedule to be home for the delivery, and signing to confirm receipt, you can sit back and let your items come to you. If you’re home at the time of the drop-off, you can request the driver place your delivery in the garage; if you’re out of the house, the driver will leave it near the garage or doorstep.

30-Day Returns

Return all new, unused, and unassembled items in their original packaging, and we'll give you a full refund minus the cost of the original AND return shipping.

No Restocking Fee

Most companies charge a restocking fee. We just don't do business that way.

Message to our customers: Like all retailers and manufacturers, we’re currently experiencing well-publicized supply-chain issues and steel shortages that have caused some orders to be delayed. We sincerely apologize for any inconveniences arising from this situation, and we assure you we’re making every effort to solve these problems with our vendors and logistical partners.

So, why are some orders being affected? Major ports around the world are still operating at reduced capacity because of COVID-19 restrictions — on average, container boats sit at port for about 3 weeks before being unloaded. Combine these shipping inefficiencies with a scarcity of natural resources, and virtually every industry has been crippled to some degree. Yet we acknowledge that it’s our duty to meet these challenges head-on and work toward solutions so you can enjoy more time outdoors with the people you love. We appreciate your patience as we strive to smooth out our supply chain, and we thank you for choosing us for your grilling and outdoor living needs.
