iCelcius BBQ has dedicated software that might work for smoking. (I have only used it for grilling and roasting.) I don't know whether the app would work with another device -- but probably not. Also, it is not wireless.

I have used both type k thermocouples and iCelcius BBQ, which is a thermal resistance probe. Both work fine in my WB Poppery (I). Mine is configured so the tip of the probe is just below the surface of the green bean mass when it is at rest. When the beans loft in the fluid bed and then expand, the probe will be approximately in the middle of the bean mass. That is what has worked for me. I have not used ThermaQBlue or a Thermapen, so I cannot speak to that specifically, but I would think the same placement should work.

Yes, thanks for the explanation.

Greetings, Danny, and Happy New Year All,
I have been roasting for many years and happily using RM for several years, but I have been negligent about cupping. So, I have started cupping my roasts in an attempt to rehabilitate myself. Most of the terms are self-explanatory, but what is Roast Complement? Google was not helpful. Cheers!

Thanks for doing the Roasting with RM series. I learned a few things, even though I've been using Roastmaster for several years.

Thanks, Danny. That did the trick.

Danny, I like the clean look of the new version of RM. However, there are a couple of features of the old version that I miss.
While I am roasting, I usually have a reference curve for air flow on top, because I mostly use air flow to control the profile of my fluid bed roaster.
I  miss referring to the on-graph timer for Development/1st crack progress and the temp reading while in a mode other than my BT data curve.
Also, I no longer see my Drying End marker on the roasting graph, even though it is calculated in the roast data at the end of the roast.
Am I missing a setting that will allow these things? Does my question make sense?

Hello, Danny,

I accidentally recorded a roast in Celcius when I meant to use Fahrenheit. Is it possible to convert a finished roast curve from Celcius to Fahrenheit (and vice versa) other than to change each node manually? I tried to do this by editing the curve, but it changes the temp as well as the scale. Example: 100C becomes 100F rather than 100C becomes 212F. Thanks.

I tried re-establishing iCelcius connection by closing and re opening Roastmaster as you describe below, and that works. (This is my only apple device and iOS still throws me occasionally.) Anyway, now that I know how to get the connection back, I am good. Cheers!

the newer iCelsius SDK versions will auto-launch the iCelsius brand app when you connect the probe

I have feeling that may be the problem, because I often switch to the iCelcius app to monitor cooling. (Cooling occurs in the "roast chamber" of the popper -- I just switch off the the heat.)

I did the Utilities test a few times and it performed exactly as you said each time. If I understand you, maybe the solution for me is to unplug the probe between roasts, especially if I may not begin the next roast right away.

Hello Danny, and others with experience using Roastmaster with iCelcius,
I've been having a problem with iCelcius losing connection with Roastmaster between roasts. It was happening occasionally but seems to be happening more frequently. Tonight I had to reboot my ipad between each of 4 roasts to get iCelcius back. Does anyone have an idea what is going on and what I can do to prevent it?

Thanks. That is what I wanted. I had forgotten how to navigate to Utilities.  :-[

Danny, Is it possible to show grid lines in analyzer view? It would be helpful for me when reviewing a past roast to see visually where time & temp intersect. I have looked for that option in Roastmaster, but I am not seeing a way to do it.
