Monitor your grill, smoker, oven or stovetop from anywhere!

Better performance and results. Flame Boss temperature controllers for charcoal grills and smokers make you a better pit master. Smoke tender and moist meat with precise and repeatable temperature control in your smoker the way nature intended – low and slow.

Just plug it in, set it, and forget it.

Flame Boss® takes it from there by controlling the heat with a blower that ramps up and down, while a meat probe monitors internal temperature so you know when it’s perfectly smoked. Flame Boss® lets you keep the lid closed, the temperate steady and the smokey goodness where it should be – encircling your meat, poultry and fish.


We LOVE the Flame Boss 500! It's a small, compact unit and we really enjoy seeing all the information displayed on the large screen. We trust it for our most valuable cookouts and it's definitely one of the best automatic pit controllers you'll find! AAA+

The Flame Bosses worked perfect as always, even more so since we had a contest close to our home and brought out the big toys this time with our Stump clone. The Flame Boss keeps this ~700 pound monstrosity within a single degree deviation from the set temp, what a luxury.

Awesome product! It has turned my Big Green Egg from a slightly finicky smoker to a hassle free oven!! Set the Flame Boss 400 and forget it!! It’s that simple. Plus Flame Boss has great technical support and great customer service! Buy one you won’t regret it! My son loves the one I got him as well.

The manufacturer describes the product as “cruise control for your smoker,” and I can’t think of a better way to describe it.

Consistency in temperature from cook to cook is crucial to my success on the BBQ circuit. That’s why I rely on Flame Boss controllers to help me tame my flame.

Take your ceramic charcoal grill to the next level! The Flame Boss 500 is super simple to set up to get your smoke rolling. This is the only way that I control my fire for cooking Brisket, Ribs and Pork Butts. With the Flame Boss, I simply set the temps and enjoy my day biking with my boys or whatever. Control your Flame, Enjoy your Life!

Robin Lindars Review

The temperature regulation is the best that I have observed to date. The price is lower than most of its competitors and the quality of the unit and the temperature probes is good. Overall, this unit gets a Gold Medal for ease of use and performance. Review

Not only do the Flame Boss FB500s help us produce Championship bbq, we also use them in our catering business. Being able to set our temps and walk away knowing our pits will run exactly where we want them and allowing us to focus on everything else really does make things easier and more productive.

We rode our FB500’s to Reserve Grand in DeSoto, KS this weekend. When I woke up at 3:30am Saturday morning it had gotten so cold out that my FB’s had a covering of frost over them, fired em and they just rocked all day. Love them things!

I have had this device for a little over two weeks now. Performance is exactly as expected.

I've been using the Flame Boss 500 for almost a year. The overall build of the fan, head unit and probes are second to none in the industry. Pair that high quality product with an epic customer service team and the math equals Flame Boss.
