Smokefire EX4 (2nd Gen)
Anyone found an insulated blanket that works with the EX4? It was 34 out today and I burned through a lot of pellets during 10 hour cook. Thought might use less if was more insulated. Maybe Weber will come out with one in the future.
Great suggestions on blanket and vent covers!
HOPEFULLY Weber will get these ideas and maybe consider something out for us!!

It's so cold today, I want the insulated blanket for me. (19 apparently - too cold for the SF or my other temp devices)

Wish I had an insulating blanket. This was from last night and temps got into the low teens. Probe 1 was a themoworks ambient temp probe. Not sure why such a big swing in temps? Also used a ton of pellets.

Both the ambient and meat one were Thermoworks. They do have shorter plugs compared to the Weber one. I noticed if I wiggled the cords it would beep at me But stayed connected.

The plugs on mine don't seat as firmly as the weber ones. The green light will go out & loose signal and require jiggling to register again. I trust the Thermoworks more and have also noticed a big temp difference in the smoker. I checked both using ice water. Both were within 1 degree of each other. The weber took forever to drop to 33 while the Thermoworks took 4-5 seconds.

-25c and cooking a ham. A weber isulated blanket would be nice to save a few pellets but overall impressed at the performance of the smokefire in the 🥶.

All probes “are created equally” in that the bi-metal strips within them are selected based on the specifications of the controller/ display. Not only that, but their rate of change can vary across their operating range, meaning that they can be close to another probe at one point and divergent at other points.

One can start to determine the suitability by either putting the probes next to one another and running in an empty grill without food. I also check mine periodically fir relative accuracy by placing the tip of the probe in boiling water.

If you are referring to the slow response to the Weber permanent grill probe. That is because there is both a band-width and time delay function in most PID controllers.
