The BBQ iGrill 3: a must have accessory
Are you sick of relying on your best guess when the meat on the BBQ is cooked? Or worse still, cutting into your meat whilst it’s still cooking to ensure it has been cooked through? This is considered the number 1 grilling sin, but luckily the iGrill 3 may be the answer to your BBQing woes.
Despite our best efforts of checking the size of the meat against the cooking time required, we can still get it wrong. This method requires all cooking conditions to be perfect without any interruption or loss of heat. Well sometimes this just isn’t the case. It is so disappointing when we our meat isn’t our preferred texture and colour. What about when friends come over? How do you know when their steak is done? One wants rare, one wants medium and someone else want medium well. It’s enough to ruin the whole cooking experience all together!
The future of the BBQ accessory at the touch of your finger
Weber know you want to get the most enjoyment every time you cook with their products so they have designed a thermometer. No just any thermometer but one that works via Bluetooth technology so the BBQ talks to your phone, tablet or watch. It was originally developed for Weber rookies so they could optimise their Weber experience from the get-go and cook to the perfect temperature to enjoy maximum taste and flavour every single time.
Yes technology has crept into the dark art of grilling but definitely to the customers advantage. The iGrill will send you grill alerts and data directly to your smart phone tablet or watch. It will tell you when you have reached the compatible temperature you need to start cooking, when the grill is losing heat, even when your meal is ready!
Simply download the Weber iGrill App through the Apple App Store or Android Google App Store. You can then pre set alarms, access cooking time and temperature guides or even view Weber’s most popular recipes. It also has compatibility with social media so you don’t have to try to describe how succulent and tender you roast was, you can show your friends.
