Take full control of your cook and learn how to create perfect BBQ every time with the UltraQ® Temperature Control.
Undercooked and overcooked meat will be a thing of the past thanks to the UltraQ, the latest innovation by BBQ Guru. With its revolutionary design, intuitive app interface controlled via Bluetooth and/or Wi-Fi, and completely hands-free capabilities, you can finally become the master of your BBQ.
Why is proper temperature control so important?
When it comes to BBQ, temperature is a primary component of a proper cook. You need to ensure that not only is your grill at the right temperature but so is your food. One misstep can lead to overcooked, dry, or burnt meat. That is why BBQ Guru has taken the guesswork out of BBQ by inventing a temperature control that gives you oven-like precision, and it can be controlled completely by your phone.
Status Light Ring
Find out if your food is cooking at a glance, thanks to the patent-pending Status Light Ring. This state-of-the-art feature is going to completely change how you monitor temperature on your grill. Now, you can get visual feedback throughout your cook at a glance.
Bright LED with Display Scanning Feature
The UltraQ is equipped with a large LED display to show the precise probe temperatures at a glance, giving you further insight as to how your cook is going. With the Display Scanning feature, the “Q-Tail” light on the Status Light Ring will light up in one of 4 colors, one at a time, to show you the temperature of each digital temperature probe, allowing you to quickly see the temperature on the LED display and the color of the probe.

No matter where you are, the UltraQ’s connective capabilities have got you covered.

For those who want a simple cook, the UltraQ comes with a Plug-and-Play option. Hook it up and it will default to a pit temperature of 250 F. It also comes with three buttons on the side panel which allow you to set and toggle between pit and food temperatures – no app or Wi-Fi needed.
New Patented 5-in-1 Versatile Guru Mount
Introducing the new 5-in-1 Versatile Guru Mount. This sleek mount has multiple features that allow you to use your Guru temperature control in the most convenient setup, no matter your grill configuration.
The anti-skid rubber feet let you mount the UltraQ on virtually any flat surface without having to worry about it sliding around or scratching the surface it rests on. Alternatively, you can also remove the rubber feet to reveal screw holes, allowing you to mount it to wood and other surfaces. The built-in swivel head also lets you set up the UltraQ to face the direction you want, giving you a perfect view no matter where you are.
We’ve also built in a powerful, high-temperature-resistant magnet, which means you can place the mount on most metal surfaces for even more versatility.
High Precision, Dishwasher-Safe Temperature Probes
Crucial to UltraQ’s accurate temperature tracking and control is its high-precision digital thermometer probes. The control comes with two new and improved, sturdy, dishwasher-safe temperature probes. One probe is attached to your grill grate to precisely measure the interior of the pit. The other probe is inserted into your food, so you can keep an eye on its internal temperature as you cook.
After your cook, you can easily wash the probes by hand or in the dishwasher. The probes are rated for temperatures up to 500 F, and the sturdy sheathed wires protect against breakage and kinks.
How do you control coal intensity? Configure the oxygen flow.
The UltraQ automatically adjusts to regulate the temperature of your grill by blowing just the right amount of oxygen on your charcoal. The fan is also equipped with a built-in slide damper for further unmatched temperature precision, making it easier for you to adjust the grill due to natural drafts that affect cooking temperatures during the fan’s off cycle. Need to extinguish a fire quickly? Simply close the damper to cut off oxygen flow completely.
BBQ Guru’s Pit Viper fan is best for ceramics, kettles and most smaller backyard smokers.
The Pit Bull fan is best to power and control large grills and smokers. For very large smokers.
Intelligent Open Lid Detection
We know it’s hard trying not to peek, but if you have to open your grill, heat escapes, causing your grill’s cooking temperatures to plummet. Meanwhile, the extra blast of air that gets introduced into your grill stokes the fire, usually causing a spike in temperature. The UltraQ comes with intelligent open-lid detection technology. When the device senses a sudden drop in temperatures, recovery time is quickly adjusted to get your grill back to your desired cooking temperature in no time without overshooting.
Patented Ramp Mode
Our proprietary Ramp Mode prevents your meat from being overcooked by automatically lowering your pit temperature as your food temperature increases. This gives you more time to remove your meat at just the right time, so that dried and burnt meat is a thing of the past.
Alexa Voice Control
Want to be more “hands-on” with your cooking while also staying “hands-off”? Imagine you’re watching the game and don’t want to get up and check your cook. Just ask your Amazon Alexa-enabled device to check on your UltraQ.
Want to quickly know the temperature of your food?
Alexa, what’s the temperature on Food 1?
Want to increase your pit temperature?
