Your Smartphone Is Your Sous Chef with This Char-Broil’s SmartChef Gas Grill

If you love barbecue but hate standing over the grill all day, Char-Broil’s new SmartChef gas grill connects to a smartphone app so you can check on your dinner while doing something else. Now you really can be in two places at one time when grilling.

The SmartChef TRU-Infrared Gas Grill sports stainless steel burners, a side burner for pots and pans, porcelain-coated grates for easy cleaning, and even glowing LED knobs for nighttime grilling. It has it all. However, the best feature is the ability to monitor your meal from afar. Using built-in sensors and temperature probes that can be inserted into your foods, the SmartChef grill connects to your Wi-Fi network so that it can work with an accompanying iOS app to give you continuous feedback on your dish.

Since you can monitor your meals, that means they should always turn out perfect and never get burned. The app can even deliver notifications as its time to flip your meat and vegetables, so it’s great for amateurs. It can let you know grill temperature, burner status, time remaining, and even when the grill is cool enough to cover, or if you’re running low on propane.

You would expect all of these features to cost you a fortune, but the whole grill is only $799(USD), which honestly isn’t bad. You can get one over on Amazon for $829.99 – but that includes free U.S. shipping.
