Default CyberQ Wifi

so I bought a CyberQ wifi to run on a WSM 18.5 and have use it on two cooks so far. Tried it on a roast shooting for 230 and it ran +/- 15 Deg..Second, did two 15# turkeys shooting for 330. The system would not even come close on its own. had to run with all wents open 100% plus front door cracked. Both cooks I had fired the Weber up the standard method. Any tips that would help with holding a steady temp.?

Interesting. Santa Claus just brought me a CyberQ WiFi, I haven't tried it out yet. I'm interested in reading the replies.

Do you have the 4cfm or the 10cfm fan? The 4 will probably not give enough airflow for that temp. Also, check to see that the little guillotine damper is fully open and that your top vent is full open. Hope that helps.

I'm running a 10cfm and had the vent on the fan full open. I'm wondering if i should do a calibration? if so, do you calibrate only one probe? other than that, its a cool toy!!

30+lbs of cold turkey is quite a bit for the 18.5 and trying to get up to 330 with that much meat i could see being a little tougher than usual and standard wsm methods might need some mods.

i definitely would make sure you are preheating the smoker so everything is up to temp before putting meat on. maybe include some firebricks or pan of sand to help hold temps. also try preheating higher than your target temp so things dont drop too much and youre not playing catch up the whole cook. if trying for 330, i would preheat to 350/360. and do the preheating with the guru so it configures itself prior to putting the meat on.

330 is hard for a Guru on a WSM without opening any of the other vents, let alone that you had 30 lbs of cold meat in there.

For a 15 degree swing on the roast, that sounds like you may have an air leak somewhere. I'd take a look at you door as well as the fit of your middle section and the base.

I have a guru and a 10cfm fan I run my fan damper only about 1/4 open I cook at 250f never have a problem. If you cook hotter I would open it to 1/2. Having the fan damper wide open will overshot your temp. Hope this helps.


Have fun and happy smoking

I like to use a clay pot base in my water pan. Just wrap it in foil and it is easy to clean up. Also, preheating to 350-360 should help, as mentioned above. With two turkeys on there it's an uphill battle.
