The final countdown

The final countdown. After selecting what's going on the grill, there's just one tap needed to start the timer.

What is it about?

Simply pick the cut of meat that you desire, its thickness, and how "done" you would like your meat to be. GrillTime will let you know the ideal amount of time that you will need to grill your meat and what temperature you should grill it at.

For those who...

  • Looking for a simple and easy
  • Don't have a lot of experience on the grill or cooking a wide variety of meats.
  • Want to access the timer on their Apple Watch.

Not for those who...

  • Grillers who want to access recipes and other information.
  • Are experienced barbecuers.

Why we love it

Who wouldn't love a universal app that will tell you when to flip your steak or burger and when it's done? The app is well-designed, easy-to-use, and a winner.
