Update: This cover made it through our hot, dry summer (semi-desert) with flying colours. No fading, no rips or tears. It still looks new. We will update in the spring if anything untoward happens in the winter.

All jokes aside, this works great. A bit of newspaper rolled up into 4 or 4 balls below, fill up with charcoal lumps, ignite, 15 minutes later, you have yourself some nice glowing charcoal, ready to cook.
When I received it I thought it was huge and was thinking of returning it, my wife said I should try it. Well I tried and made a huge mistake, first all it needed was a bit of paper in the bottom and worked fantastic, it was great. But I only filled it to 3/4 thinking it was huge. I was wrong, did not have enough coals, Seems the Webber knew better than me....:)
I kept it and next time filled it with coals and was very happy with starter and BBQ
This device is true to it's promise....almost....in 15 to 20 minutes you will have coals hot enough to cook on.
I do, however, think that at this price it SHOULD be made of stainless steel and when this one dies, as it will in a few years if the other reviews are correct, I will make myself a homemade one out of either cheap black steel wood stove chimney ( very cheap and comes usually in a 24 inch or 36 inch section OR a similar piece of stainless tubing from some other application..( Selkirk type chimney E.G. ) UNLESS these guys make one out of stainless so it will AND SHOULD last 10 years or more.

It’s rugged and durable, as long as you hide it from direct sunlight. I’ve even grilled in the rain with it with no canopy or anything by wrapping it in a plastic shopping bag! Used it for a large chunk of the summer, probably 30 to 40 times now including on camping trips.
The sending unit into which a maximum of two probes can be connected, shows the temperature of each probe (rotates between them every few seconds). It then sends remotely to the receiver which displays both temps at the same time and has customizable options and a sound alert!

It is not only convenient to be able to take the temperature of a radiator from across the room, but it is also more sanitary to test bath water or formula without needing to touch it.
Here's what I used it for this month:
oil for frying eggs
side of microwave during operation
air leaks around side of door and windowsill
air leaks near insulation
different parts of furnace
side of water heater
laser for playing with dogs
Besides the in-shop tasks my other main use

I would buy again. This will easily outlast my barbecue.
Delivered within a few business days with Prime. Installed in my dirty grill within 20 minutes.
+ Quality parts
+ Adjustable and can be assembled by hand (no need for any tools, since they use wingnuts)
This is mostly my fault, but they are not very wide. my burners peek out from the sides of the shield and so they don't protect the burners at all. That means it also doesn't diffuse the heat, so I can have a burnt steak on one side, and raw on the other side... at least on average it

I'm happy to report that it works really well! It was substantially larger than I had thought it would be, but it makes it a lot easier to get some good force behind it while cleaning the grill. My grill (Napoleon Lex 485) has curved/wavy grates, and the grooves made in the initial wear-in process worked just fine. An added bonus is that while cleaning you get a really nice toasted cedar smell :)
I'll definitely be recommending this product to folks going forward.
The first time I used this one was right after I finished cooking my meat so the grill was nice and hot, it immediately left a nice mark on the scraper and surprisingly cleaned the grill very well. I assumed the grooves would need a little more usage to get a good cleaning but that wasn't the case.
Grill is clean and no risk of getting metal "hairs" stuck to my grill or food.
Love it, would definitely recommend this to anyone!

Just did slow smoke of pork ribs using coals in just one of the two briquet holders.
Adjusted the vents, and it went for four hours. Girls loved it. Not fall off the bone, but pick off the bone.
Added a 4" nut/bolt to the bottom vent handle. Much easier, and easy to tell just how open it is.
Cooked sweet potato and onion slices, and carrots in the middle as well.
Bought a stainless steel plate with rims which fits perfectly in ash tray. Makes cleanup extremely easy.
Perfect size for a family of 4-5, even if doing slow smoking. The lid holder is very convenient.

I also love that it has side handles to pick up off the BBQ, and as discovered thanks to a lot of rain in the last couple of days, the rain just beads right off the cover when I want to remove it and set it aside to BBQ. This allows me to remove the water and avoid getting soaked.
It is supposed to have a life time warranty against tears, so we will see how long this lasts. When putting the cover on and trying to pull on it to fit, it feels like it could tear easily.
disappointed in the following:
a) Product is unlined and the material seems very flimsy, so I don't think this will stand up to winds, snow,and ice, as well as the heat of Summer. I would be thrilled to be wrong.
b) Product is much larger than described. I ordered a medium, expecting it to fit a little loose, however, this is much too large, it appears I was sent a large instead of a medium, as it is much too big for our unit. The day I unpacked the product was also the same day as our garbage pickup; unfortunately I had thrown out the box it came in and documentation.

I did a few test see how far the range will go. My BBQ is on the deck outside and I still get a signal in my basement. You can choose four different settings of meat for each probe like beef, pork, cold smoke and when you hit the target temperature you get an alarm saying the food is ready.
So you can relax and have a home brew. I did my test on a iPhones 6
You can even set on alarm for your barbecue pit. Just need to set your HI and LO. That's perfect for anybody that loves cooking on a smoker.
I set it up overnight and next morning I watch
The inkbird IBT-4XS offers all you need in one box. 4 probes, grate clips (which are not provided with many other systems), and a rechargeable unit, with the usb cable.
The app on my iphone is the simplest I ever saw. I love it. They did their homework do design a device and an app that is simple as possible. I can't imagine how this could get any easier. Maybe if it would work over internet.
The probes provided readings within 1F of the readings of my Thermoworks device, reknown for having the best accuracy on the market. So the accuracy is good also.
Still looking for any negative point for this so far.
I love it.
Get this one with confidence.
First issue is the meat probe is not accurate. I have tested it by comparing with two instant read thermometers and it is is 10 degrees off. I don't have a way to test the air probe but that is less of an issue since I can check it against the the dome thermometer. This is disappointing since most buyers will want this product for tightly controlled smoking endeavours.
Second, the graph function is really basic, to the point of being hard to use. If that is a reason for buying this, then look elsewhere.
Third, the alarm settings lack customization.

Also this is perfect tray for cooking side dishes. We use it lot for cooking potatoes, sweet potatoes and vegetables. We put Olive oil and seasoning on it and close the tray with aluminium foil paper. When it's about do be done, remove foil and let it sit for few more minutes.

Very easy to install - just connect the two air lines to the pump and air stones, and plug it in. Couldn’t be any easier! The 25 foot air lines are a bonus as they allow the pump to be placed under cover away from the pond. I’m now hoping the extra aeration will help keep the algae under control - time will tell.

Nice look. The black is very sleek.
More spacious than I thought it was.
The tables are very handy.
The electronic start is the handiest feature of this unit.
The grills are heavy and hold heat (once it is up to temperature). I don't use oil to lube them up either.
It takes 15 minutes to reach 500*F
Searing works well but you need to give it time.
The tables fold into the unit so if you forget to open the lid before starting it up, you will melt the tables: Just a fear. Hasn't happened yet.
The grills are heavy duty but you have to take time to clean them.
I would buy this unit again but right away I was looking at modifying it for more heat: New regulator or maybe drilling out
> The BBQ heats surprisingly fast and is a nice size for 2-3 people.
> The cover should be a little larger to cover the valve, but otherwise is good.
> I was skeptical of the 6' hose, but it is perfect. It coils nicely if you want the track close, and extends if required.
> The cart works well and is sufficiently sturdy for cooking.Scrubbing from front to back is a little shaky, but the grills come out easily for cleaning. If cleaning when hot, use a sprits of water to loosen stuck on food.

Pros: Easy to carry, easy to set up, does not take a lot of space. Strong, sturdy good quality and spacious.
Cons: No place to hang a lantern or light.
*Recommend a head lamp or a light that attaches to your stove if cooking at in the dark.

My deck faces the ocean and typical 'stainless steel' BBQ's costing $300+ last about 3 years before they disintegrate from the salt spray.
I bought this one to replace my previous Weber kettle BBQ that lasted 10 years, and not because of rust. but because the grill had worn thin and I liked the features of this model. Plus the copper colour is really really nice.
I hope to get ten years out of this beauty as well.

I already saw that the rain part is covered. Not a water drop is found below it after some rain.
It already snowed. I only need to wait a little bit so that I can see if some of the snow (or melted snow) can be found over the BBQ (but I think that I won't find any).
The only downside to it, it's that after some 2 months of use (taking some sun and rain), some parts of the cover are now gray and others remain black, which gives it an older look.
Aside from that, I'm satisfied with the product.

Of course it rained the very next day!!!
But I was happy that no water came inside my grease pan.So I bragged that I made a good choice.
Now for the sad part.
I took it off and put it back 3 times since I bought it.. and it ripped off at a corner.
See the photos.
Is there a warranty?
I don't know.
The return time from Amazon expired...so I guess I am stuck with it.
Very shortly after I wrote my review I have been contacted by customer service.
They helped me out and I had received a brand new cover.
I am very happy with not only the product but also with their outstanding customer service.
They really are committed to keep the customers happy.
Thank you Vic Tsing!
