Flame Boss Introduces New BBQ Smoker Accessory with Internet Capability

Orlando, Fla. (Aug. 28, 2015) – Flame Boss™ an Orlando company that’s been manufacturing and selling remote controllers for BBQ smokers since late 2013, introduced a new “Flame Boss 200” earlier this summer that’s WiFi enabled.

Michael Collins, President, said Flame Boss 200 comes with exactly the same kit sold with his Flame Boss 100—a smoker temperature probe, meat temperature probe, power adapter and blower—except inside the control module there’s a module that enables Internet connection.

Collins said sales of the Flame Boss 100 were good since starting last year, he sold them for $289 to pool and patio stores and through hundreds of authorized dealers reps of merchants as far away as Sweden and Australia.

But now, Collins explained that his Flame Boss 200 model, which allows you to control the BBQ smoker and its temperature from work or the golf course with a smart phone or iPad, has been selling for $349 at the rate of 8 or 9 to every one of the Flame Boss 100 packages sold.

June sales of the Flame Boss 200 topped the entire sales of models 1 and 100 for the entire year of 2014, Collins said.

Both Fame Boss 100 and Flame Boss 200 are sold at authorized hardware stores, pool and patio stores and outdoor kitchen stores nationwide in packages of two varieties – “Kamado” for a ceramic BBQ smoker and the other labeled “Universal” for all traditional style smokers.   Visit www.FlameBoss.com.
