Combination operation: BBQ Guru fan + BBQ Guru smart controller
The BBQ Guru smart controller has a temperature sensor that, placed on the grill grate, is the one that monitors the temperature of the cooking space and then, the digital control unit (BBQ Guru), is the one that regulates the control of temperature.
If the temperature of the cooking space drops, the fan blows air (oxygen) into the combustion chamber and causes the charcoal to generate higher temperatures. Once the target temperature has been reached, the fan only blows air in batches so that it maintains the target temperature previously set on the BBQ Guru smart device.
The device is available in 2 different versions but if you do not purchase it at the moment and therefore there will be no BBQ Gurú control device connected, you can simply regulate the flow of oxygen manually with the opening of the shot.
The manual control works very well even without electronic assistance, as long as the ambient temperature (for example, during the night) does not change significantly. This means that once the draft has been adjusted, the temperature remains constant for many hours.
The main difference is that with the brain of the system (the BBQ Guru control), once connected to the fan, it will give you remote access to your cooking session and once you are connected, you can adjust the temperature and receive alerts while running errands, you work, you are at the office, with your family, watching a movie … that is, it gives you complete freedom. And this is where it makes a difference and is really worth it as it is capable of operating on autopilot for more than 24 hours on approximately 2.5 – 3 kg of coal.

TEMPERATURE INCREASE MODE
This function allows the temperature of the cooking space to be lowered before the core temperature of the food is reached. If the temperature ramp mode is set to (rAY), it is activated at a low temperature (approximately 110 ° C). This mode is used for “long cooking”, with the idea that the food is not overcooked.
This function gradually reduces the cooking space temperature to the set temperature of the center of the food as soon as the difference between the temperatures detected by the cooking space sensor and the core temperature sensor is approximately 10 ° C. The control unit maintains the cooking space temperature slightly above the core temperature as long as charcoal (fuel) is available.
This function allows the set temperature to be quickly restored after opening the lid. If the “Cover open” option is set to (oLY) in the menu, the cover open detection is activated. When the lid is opened, the temperature drops. This sudden cooling can cause the fan to “force” the combustion of charcoal (fuel) and the desired cooking temperature to be exceeded after the lid is closed. This mode detects if the oven lid is open and minimizes fan operation during this time.
The temperature always increases if the cooking space lid is opened and closed frequently, even if the fan is off. In the factory setting, the “Flip open” mode is always activated. Disable this feature if you have excessive airflow problems. In order to avoid false alarms, when this mode is activated, no alarm sounds when the temperature drops and the lid is open.
THE BEST FRIEND OF YOUR BARBECUE
