How to Calibrate a Wired Meat Probe

Only WiFIRE-enabled D2 grills have a calibrate and offset feature. Non-connected grills and new Timberline & Ironwood grills do not have a calibrate option.

  1. Create an ice bath for a perfectly 32°F/0°C environment by filling a glass completely full of ice so when you add water, the ice is not floating.
  2. Navigate to MENU > SETTINGS > PROBE CALIBRATION.
  3. Select CALIBRATE PROBE.
  4. Place the probe in the ice bath. Stir gently for 1 minute to get an accurate reading. Looking at the app, the probe should read 32°F (0°C).
  5. If the probe is reading off greater than 15°F (9°C), contact our Customer Support team so we can help get it resolved.
  6. If the probe is within 15°F (9°C), use the PROBE OFFSET function. This feature works like a scale's 'tare' feature, offsetting the temp by the amount it's off.
    1. Navigate to MENU > SETTINGS > PROBE CALIBRATION.
    2. Select PROBE OFFSET.
    3. Rotate the dial to adjust the probe temperature offset in 1° increments, from -15° to +15°F/-8° to +8°C.
      1. The default setting is 0, so if this is the first time you have adjusted the offset, you will be able to increase or decrease the offset by 15°F.
    4. Press the center of the dial to confirm your offset amount.
