Stoker "setback" sounds similar to Guru "ramp

I'm looking through the documentation I got on my Stoker yesterday, and noticed the setback operation.

Has anyone experimented with this?

The manual for my early Stoker doesn't mention this feature, as far as I can tell. Can you tell me what yours says? I might be interested in upgrading my software.

I have version .5.

In the corresponding, i.e. Ver .5, manual under section 2 "Introduction" on page seven in the subsection "Food Measurement Features" you'll find the following, "The Stoker also features a 'Setback' function to turn down the temperature of your barbecue / smoker when your food is done to prevent it from overcooking."

Yep, it's right there... I just never noticed it. (RTFM, as they say.) Apparently it just does this on its own, as there seems to be nothing for you to set up. I'll have to watch this next time, instead of taking the meat off immediately when it reaches target temperature, and see if the Stoker backs off on the cooking temp (and how far - i.e., if the food temp alarm is set at 195, will the unit cut the cooking temp back to 195?)

That's what I'm guessing, and, I too will need to watch next time as I was in too big a hurry this time. Have you listened to the podcast? That new software sounds great....

OK. Well, that answers that question.

Is the patent so thorough/comprehensive that you can't implement any sort of feature like this... or has it just temporarily stalled the process? I'm sure you can afford a team of patent lawyers to examine the matter for you.
