The best apps to help you master grilling techniques, time foods just right, and get fresh new ideas that keep your grill menu interesting!
Looking for the best iPhone apps to help you make the most of your grill season this year? Whether you're preparing for a cookout or just want new recipe ideas to spice up your family's menu, there are tons of apps available in the iOS App Store that can help. Another important aspect of grilling is making sure all your veggies and meats are timed just right. And you guessed it, there are apps for that too! The real question is, what iPhone apps are the absolute best when it comes to becoming the ultimate grill master?
GrillTime is not only a great general grilling guide in general, it's an excellent timer that helps you make sure whatever you have on the grill comes out perfect each and every time. I've found GrillTime to be especially convenient when cooking for larger groups where you have multiple kinds of meats on the grill at once. Set a time for each individual hamburger patty or set times for different types of foods, however you'd like to organize and time, GrillTime lets you do it. When your food is done, get a notification telling you it's time to remove or check on something.
While GrillTime is a decent grilling guide, it's the best all around grill timer you're going to find.
