What is Firmware and how do I install it?
Firmware is an update to the product and will require the digital controller to be connected to Wi-Fi. It is recommended that firmware updates be completed on 2.4GHz Wi-Fi connections (NOT 5GHz). It is not recommended to update over hotspot connections. When updates are available you will get a prompt to update your smoker's firmware when opening the app.
Tips For Wi-Fi
What if I have trouble connecting to the app?
In case you experience problems during the initial set up or subsequent connectivity, follow the steps below to set up the smoker once more:
- Unplug the smoker.
- If you have the smoker added in the App, remove it by tapping the "X" button.
- Sign out of your Masterbuilt account using the profile screen.
- Delete the App.
- Restart your phone.
- Reinstall the App.
- Sign in to your Masterbuilt account.
- Plug in the smoker.
- Follow steps to add the smoker.
If Wi-Fi is not present, can the controller be updated through Bluetooth?
No, the controller can only be updated through a Wi-Fi connection.
The connection icon is blinking on the smoker's controllerWhen the smoker door is opened, the ability to control the smoker is disabled for mobile devices and placed in a "monitor only" mode until the door has been closed and the "connect" button is pushed to re-enable full functionality for a mobile device. Every time the door is opened, the user will need to push the connect button in order to gain mobile device control as a safety precaution.
Do I need to update the controller before I use the smoker?We do recommend updating the controller before using the smoker to ensure it is running on the latest update, but it is not required before using the smoker.
