BBQ Guru UK Controller Quick Start Guide

BBQ Guru DigiQ DX3

Entry level is the DigiQ DX3 powered by 240V mains electricity (no adapters) and delivering a no nonsense level of control.

DigiQ DX3 Control Panel

The first thing that you notice about the DigiQ DX3 is that there is both a pit probe and a food probe. This gives you the option not only to determine your cooking temperature but also to monitor the core temperature of the meat that you are cooking.

The standard kit comes ready with the 10cfm pit viper which is great for most medium to large ceramics plus Weber Smokey Mountain / Pro Q bullet smokers.

There is the option to upgrade to the 25cfm pit bull fan and for the larger fireboxes you can even control to fans from the single control unit.

Setting and control is intuitive via the four push buttons to the front of the panel.

Other features include:

Ramp Mode - when turned on this feature uses the food probe to detect when your meat is almost at the desired temperature, it then shuts off the fan to ensure that your food doesn't overcook.

Open Lid Detection - Opening the lid on your smoker causes an immediate temperature drop. This feature detects that drop and holds the fan back from kicking in until the lid has been closed.

The DigiQ DX3 comes in two standard packs:

B901-1016-BK-01 - This unit contains a universal adapter suitable for most of the top brand medium / large ceramic grills eg. Classic, Big Joe, Le Chef, Big Green Egg L, XL & XXL. It is also compatible with Weber and Pro Q smokers.

B901-1016-BK-01 JUNIOR - Thus unit is dedicated to the smaller aperture ceramics such as the Kamado Joe / Monolith Junior and the Small / Minimax Big Green Egg

In addition that is also a kit dedicated to the Monolith BBQ Guru Edition (209091)

DigiQ DX3 KitDigiQ DX3 Kit

DynaQ

The BBQ Guru UK launch of the Dyna Q as you'D expect, covers off all the features already available in the DigiQ DX3, namely:

  • Pit temperature control via the pit probe
  • Meat temperature monitoring and alarm via a single food probe
  • Ramp Mode shuts off the fan to ensure that your food doesn't overcook
  • Intelligent Lid Detection holds the fan back from kicking in until the lid has been closed

DynaQ Status Light Ring and Bluetooth Phone App Connection

DynaQ BBQ Guru UK

The DynaQ features a brand-new, intuitively-designed, state-of-the-art, patent-pending Guru Status Light Ring.

This revolutionary feature is a game-changer for the BBQ industry. At a glance, you can get visual feedback on the status of your cooking temperature and the operation of the control. Now, you can quickly and easily identify crucial cooking moments where your quick intervention could save the day.

Blue Outer Ring:

Constant blue indicates that your pit temperature has not reached your target cooking temperature. When you first start your cook, the blue light is effectively indicating that your barbecue grill is in the preheating phase.
Alternatively, if you've been cooking for a while and you see the blue ring re-appear, it could be an indication that you may be running out of charcoal.

Red Outer Ring with Pulse Indicators:

When the outer light ring turns red and pulses on the sides, this means that the DynaQ is running exactly as expected with the variable flow fan precisely maintaining your cooking temperature.
When the entire outer light ring pulses red, this serves as a visual alarm so you'll know something has occurred and that it needs your attention.

The Smartphone App:

The BBQ Guru UK app allows you to have total control over your DynaQ right from your smartphone, whether you're running on iOS or Android mobile operating systems.

The BBQ Guru UK app lets you set target temperatures, view current cook temperatures, change your cook settings, and overall have total control of your BBQ, all from your phone. Use the app to achieve perfect predictability and consistency with your cooks without needing to hover by the barbecue.

Whether you're in your backyard playing with the kids, hanging out with friends and family or sheltering indoors from inclement British weather, a quick check on your phone over Bluetooth ensures your food is on target.

The DynaQ is available in two standard kits:

B900-1030-01-EU - This unit contains a universal adapter suitable for most of the top brand medium / large ceramic grills eg. Classic, Big Joe, Le Chef, Big Green Egg L, XL & XXL. It is also compatible with Weber and Pro Q smokers.

109090 - This kit is dedicated to the Monolith BBQ Guru Edition


Ultra Q

UltraQ by BBQ Guru UK

The UltraQ is here, taking over from the well respected CyberQ Cloud and delivering the whole nine yards. As you would expect, the UltraQ builds on the DynaQ functionality to deliver what is the state of the BBQ control art.

The UltraQ gives you everything that a DynaQ will:

  • Ramp Mode shuts off the fan to ensure that your food doesn't overcook
  • Intelligent Lid Detection holds the fan back from kicking in until the lid has been closed
  • A large LED display to prominently show the precise probe temperatures at a glance, giving you further insight as to how your cook is going.

UltraQ Display Scanning

Display Scanning is a new exciting and innovative feature. The UltraQ measures your pit temperature and up to 3 food temperatures. With Display Scanning turned on, the "Q-Tail™" light on the Status Light Ring will illuminate in one of 4 colors, one at a time, to show you the temperature of each of the digital temperature probes. You can quickly see the temperature on the LED display and the color of the probe, so you can easily keep track of your entire grill.

Bluetooth or WiFi:

The BBQ Guru smartphone app allows you to have total control over your UltraQ right from your smartphone, whether you're running on iOS or Android mobile operating systems.

Via a Bluetooth or Wi-Fi connection, the BBQ Guru app lets you set target temperatures, view current cook temperatures, track up to 3 food temperatures, and overall have total control of your BBQ, all from your phone. Use the app to achieve perfect predictability and consistency with your cooks without needing to hover by the barbecue. In addition, with email and text notifications, you'll always know the most up-to-date status of your BBQ.

No matter where you are, the UltraQ's connective capabilities have got you covered. Use the Bluetooth connection if you're planning a snooze or doing some DIY, or switch on the Wi-Fi if you need to the nip to the shops, watch the match or pop down the pub. You can keep an eye on your food from literally anywhere with a Wi-Fi connection!

Oh, and did we say, UltraQ also has Alexa compatibility for voice control.

How To Fix A BBQ Guru Adapter To A Ceramic Grill

There are two sizes of BBQ Guru adapter for use with ceramic grills:

  • Junior - this fits the Monolith & Kamado Joe Juniors together with the Big Green Egg Small and Minimax.
  • Universal adapter - this fits all the larger sizes including Classic, Le Chef, Big Joe, Primo and Big Green Egg large (and upwards)

Note: The Monolith Icon has the adapter and kill plug already fitted to the side of the grill.

Whichever ceramic grill you have, the process for inserting the adapter is the same and can be broken down into 4 easy steps...

Release the fixings on the bottom damper

In all cases the BBQ Guru adapter is fitted to the bottom damper. The adapter replaces the need for the cover slide - note that there's a rubber "kill plug" to shore up the adapter hole after your cook or if you don't want to use your Guru. 

The first step is to remove the cover slide which is done my loosening off the two fixing screws on the right hand side of the damper.

How to fix a BBQ Guru adapter to a ceramic grill - step 1

Note. It looks just as easy to loosen off the left fixing screws but you can't remove the cover slide becasue there is small folded out bit of metal which acts as a cover stop.

Replace the cover slide with the BBQ Guru adapter

Remove the cover slide and insert the BBQ Guru adapter in its place.

How to fix a BBQ Guru adapter to a ceramic grill - step 2

The cover will slide out really easily and there's two point so note about inserting the adapter:

  • The adapter in your kit will be a flat plate. The damper is rounded so you will need to bend the adapter plate prior to sliding it into the damper.
  • The universal adapter for the larger Classic size (and upwards) has a vertical slide on it so that it can fit differing damper apertures. It makes the fitting of the adapter a little more fiddly but once in place it will remain.

Re-fit and secure the fixing screws

Not much to say here other than re-fit all that you removed at the start of the operation. The damper will bend back around the ceramic shell and this will also help to secure the BBQ Guru adapter in position.

How to fix a BBQ Guru adapter to a ceramic grill - step 3

That's it, all done. Referring to the picture above, just remove the kill plug and your BBQ Guru fan will fit snugly into the circular hole of the adapter. Now you're ready to cook!

Note: Spare kill plugs are available if required


Monolith BBQ Guru Edition

BBQ Guru UK standard range is described above but to top everything off, BBQ Guru UK have teamed up Europe's No.1 ceramic grill brand Monolith and created the BBQ Guru Edition.

Now you don't have to worry about the right adapter to fit your grill, the powerful fan comes already integrated into your ceramic barbecue.

Included in your kit is a mounting plate to secure your controller to the bamboo side table. It's then up to you to decide whether you want to couple your BBQ Guru Edition Monolith (extra cost) to the DigiQ DX2 or the CyberQ CLOUD. 

The image below demonstrates how this beautifully integrated package works together.

Select the size of Monolith (Classic or Le Chef) that best suits your needs and then chose which controller you want... DigiQ DX3 or Cyber Q CLOUD. The Monolith BBQ Guru Edition is only available in black and you can choose to have it in one of three formats:

  • Robust metal cart with bamboo side shelves - perfect for the patio
  • The stainless steel framed teakwood buggy - the all terrain vehicle
