What Is a Smart Grill and How Does It Work?

To put it simply, a smart grill is like most smart technology; it uses improved sensors and connectivity to link up with other technology and keep you better informed and more precisely in control of the action.

There are a few different approaches to this sort of technology, but the affordable Weber smart grills work by connecting to your home WiFi network or by pairing to mobile devices via Bluetooth. From that point, sensors in the grill can keep you up to date via app on the grill’s internal temperature, the internal temperature of cooking food, fuel levels, etc.

Why Invest in a Smart Grill?

When it comes to making the most of a grill, keeping control of the temperature is vital. A smart grill allows its owner to not only have a peerless understanding of the temperatures involved in their grilling but do so without being glued to the side of the grill watching sensor readouts or losing heat measuring with thermometers.

Smart grills allow for tracking the temperature when you’ve stepped away to work on a side item or talk to a guest, with precise alerts allowing you to more easily control exactly how your food progresses to its final state. If you want to be able to grill like someone who watches everything like a hawk without that level of mental focus and invested effort, it’s an excellent solution.

There’s also an element of improved safety with a smart grill, as you won’t have to worry about your grill working its way up to a raging conflagration unnoticed when you’re constantly connected to a readout of its condition.

Is a Smart Grill Right for You?

A smart grill lets the more casual griller track their cooking like a true elite. If you want to take your cooking to the limit without exhaustive effort, a smart grill is a great way to move in that direction.
