Outdoor cooking company Char-Broil has introduced a Wi-Fi connected grill that delivers real-time alerts and offers state-of-the-art monitoring. The SmartChefTRU-Infrared 3B Gas Grill aims to alleviate a number of challenges consumers face while grilling. Although regular methods can take some time to finesse, this grill aims to make the process easy for everyone.

The grill has a number of features, including the ability to easily monitor and control temperatures, cooking and flipping times from a smart device. Consumers can pick from a library of recipes that connect to the device, and the TRU-Infrared technology aims to more evenly cook food.

There are multiple control modes for cooking, giving users different options when grilling their food. Guided Cook lets consumers select the food and follow step-by-step notifications, Time Cook lets them select the grill temperature and target time then monitor the cooking process, and Temperature Cook lets them select the target probe temperature and monitor the cooking. There is also a Manual Mode for those who want to control the grill manually while monitoring the grill status and receiving notifications.

Brendan Anderson, Vice President of Marketing and Product Management at Char-Broil, said in a press release:

“Having a guided cooking experience inspires grilling techniques, and gives consumers freedom to learn how to build their craft. For Char-Broil it’s all about creating a better product and that includes smart technology, too. We’re proud to add The Char-Broil SmartChef TRU-Infrared Gas Grill to our family of grills.”
