Be the master of your grill with these great iPhone and iPad apps.

The Pit Pal BBQ App

Keep track of your BBQs

The Pit Pal BBQ App

A cookout log

For anyone who wants to keep track of their BBQ history.

This universal app is wonderful whether you are barbecueing in your back yard, cooking in a competition, or catering a party. The Pit Pal BBQ takes the history of tracking your grilling and cooking into account, such as what wood or sauce/rub combos you were using or what the weather was like while you were cooking. This information becomes helpful when you need to grill again because you are able to look back on what you may want to tweak a bit. Save photos, add notes and temperatures, and more. The app also has direct interaction with the BBQ Guru CyberQ Wi-Fi.

Why we love it

Barbecuing is serious business for some, and this app helps you keep track of your cookout history and track record with the grill. Remember your sauce/rub combos, weather conditions, and other bits of information that will become useful for referring to in the future.
