The Science Behind Better BBQ
Temperature Control

The best BBQ is tender, juicy, and delicious. Cooking to that kind of perfection is only possible with low and even temperatures.


Low, Slow & Steady!

The best BBQ is tender, juicy, and delicious. Achieving that kind of perfection is only possible when you can precisely control your cooking time and temperature. From beginners to the most seasoned BBQ pit masters, these two factors remain the biggest challenges in outdoor cooking.

When you master cooking at precise, even temperatures over a set period of time, the tough, chewy protein fibres in meat called collagen transform incredibly to the tender, tantalizing, and amazingly delectable BBQ we all crave.

The problem is that trying to control temperature with most grills and smokers is very difficult. Here’s an example of unmanaged temperature fluctuations in a normal cooker.

It’s nearly impossible to cook great BBQ with those kinds of unstable temperature swings. Because of this, many frustrated people end up with tough, dried out meat that no one enjoys.

That’s why the minds at BBQ Guru invented a revolutionary line of high-tech devices that provide you with the automated precision of oven-like temperature control in outdoor cooking and food temperature tracking that, until now, has never before been possible.

Simply attach your Guru control to your cooker, set your desired temperature, and, almost like magic, it consistently maintains your target temperature so that in no time, you will be making the best BBQ you ever have for your family and friends.

Using a high precision digital thermometer, Guru controls create the desired temperature inside your grill and continuously monitor temperature fluctuations throughout your cook. The oscillating fan system uses a variable flow rate to fine-tune the amount of oxygen inside your grill and will either increase or decrease your charcoal’s heat, helping you to maintain the perfect temperature and achieve better tasting BBQ.

Controlled Air Flow for Precise Temperature

Probes constantly take precise readings
Fan circuitry provides air flow

All three of Guru’s controls start with a high precision digital thermometer placed inside the cooker. It sends these readings back to the main control unit that measures temperature fluctuations. It then regulates a specially calibrated fan blade system that feeds just the right amount of oxygen into the cooker. This increases or decreases the intensity of your charcoal’s heat to create your perfect temperature.

BBQ DigiQ with Weber Smoker


Whether you’re just thinking of starting the hobby of BBQ or you’re a pro pit master, the cutting edge technology from BBQ Guru’s controls makes great outdoor cooking easier than ever before.

BBQ Guru’s entry level control, the PartyQ, runs on AA batteries and provides temperature control for most small and medium-sized cookers. Because it’s portable, it’s great for your backyard, tailgates, picnics, camping, or the beach, or wherever life takes you and your BBQ.

The DigiQ also adds a digital food thermometer that constantly track your meat’s internal temperature so you can easily pull your food off the heat at the exact moment it reaches its peak of perfection!

The CyberQ® Cloud comes with three digital food thermometers and is WiFi enabled so you can monitor and control your cook temperatures and watch up to three food temperatures from the convenience of your smartphone, tablet, or PC. It can even notify you by e-mail or text message when your meat is ready.
