CyberQ Wi-Fi For the Geek Grill Master

Ah, the grilling season! If it grows, you can throw it on the barbecue and call it dinner, and why wouldn’t you want to? Well, I can think of a couple of reasons: First, if you live somewhere that doesn’t allow you to set up a grill, then you obviously can’t do it. But then there are those who live in an upstairs apartment who have access to the yard, but it’s just not convenient, especially when entertaining guests. The CyberQ can definitely help those in the latter situation, as well as the terminally lazy or those who just don’t have the attention span to cook an entire meal over fire.

BBQ Guru offers up the CyberQ for your grilling pleasure. Relying on the included probes, you can remotely monitor your cooking temperature and level of doneness, as well as receive email alerts when the various stages of cooking are complete. As the name implies, it does this via Wi-Fi signal, but it can also be done through an internet browser. All you need is a mobile device or a PC and with a little setup you’re good to go.

You can program the system depending on how involved you want to be with your cooking, which is nice. From simple information such as the real-time data stream of cooking temperature all the way through programming it to cook your entire meal, CyberQ will handle whatever you need it to. If you’d rather not use your smartphone or PC, you can always use the CyberQ control box for your information.

It doesn’t just cook, though. It has a cook and hold function to keep your food warm without cooking it further until you have time to get to it, an open lid detector for in case you got distracted and forgot to close it when you walked away, and audible alarms which will sound when either your food is done or the temperature fluctuates too much (indicating a problem with your cooking, and also potentially a fire). It works in temperatures from 32 to 475F (0 to 246C).

You can pick one up for $295.00 US if you think this is something you need. Seems a bit steep for my taste, but then I’m a huge fan of charcoal and sitting outside watching raw food turn into dinner.
