I was able to replicate the error by starting a new test cook, entering some notes, then saving. Again, when I typed in a pit temp, all of the notes disappeared.

Other then that, I like how it worked. It should be very handy to log all of my cooks.
I did what you did, and notes was gone. I usually cook different temps during a cook and didn't see a way to plug that in.

Killer App!!! I will venture to say I would easily purchase this app, even without a guru,,

No need to be sorry. You put in a lot of effort to write an awesome app. Nobody expects the first version to be perfect. I'm happy to help out.

I have a question about the BBQ guru probes. I have a maverick thermometer set already, do I need to add probes to the guru if I buy one?
Thanks

Released v1.5 last night.

The couple of issues found by the brethren here have been fixed. You'll also notice a small difference in the start screen. We needed to find a licensing model to support future development and also didn't want to pull a bait and switch on anyone who already downloaded. So we have 3 versions now.

Backyard FREE, Competitor FREE, and Competitor PAID

You guys & gals who downloaded already will be running competitor FREE which has all functionality as it stands to date. Although... We had to put some incentive on upgrading to PRO so we put a couple small non interfering ads and a cook history limit on it. Also, there will be future enhancements that may only be available in the PRO version.

The upgrade price is pretty darn cheap for what it is at $1.99. Any funds from this app will go right back into development of it (hosting costs, image rights costs, new enhancements, etc). But I think it is a very reasonable price considering the McD's breakfast burrito I got this morning cost more

Thanks again for all the feedback and keep it coming (as well as the market reviews and facebook likes if you have a chance).

I always support good developers out there and this is one I supported. Although it doesn't have everything I need as of yet

One of the things I would like to see has already been mentioned and that is the ability to chart and trend the manual data.

Also how about giving us the ability to enter other items on the drop down lists. For example I am getting ready to cook a turkey. I could add that to my list and choose it instead of using other.

Something I noticed is the screen refresh on the cook screen. The duration timer doesn't seem to be updating.

This might have been mentioned but how about being able to backup to Dropbox?

DL'd it a couple of weeks ago and loved it so far, but was using it two days ago and in the morning set up the cook and just didn't light the fire. When I went to go start the real fire I couldn't figure out how to light the fake fire.

Great ideas. The ability to backup/export data seems to be at the top of everyone's list so will try to address sooner than later. And the duration should update every 60 seconds when on screen. We could do "real time" refreshes but to save processing/battery life, we just opted for every 60 secs.
