Say Hello to Your New BBQ Partner!
Great BBQ needs the right mix of timing and temperature. Uneven temperature shifts in your grill can result in dried or burnt meat, which means you'll need to constantly keep an eye on your grill, and adjust and readjust the dampers to try to keep the temperature where you want it.
With the DynaQ, you won't have to worry about this problem ever again. The DynaQ monitors and controls your pit's temperature in real time, so that you always know the exact temperature. In addition, you're also able to monitor the internal temperature of your food so you can remove it from the grill at the peak of perfection. You're in full control of your cook -- no more surprises!
Guru Status Light Ring
The DynaQ is outfitted with the 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:
Blue Outer Ring:
- The pit temperature has not reached your target cooking temperature. When you're first starting your cook, the blue light is an indicator that your grill is still in the preheating phase.
- 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 its variable flow fan to precisely maintain 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.
Bluetooth Controlled with IOS and Android App
The BBQ Guru app allows you to have total control over your DynaQ right from your smartphone via a Bluetooth connection, whether you're running on iOS or Android mobile operating systems.
The BBQ Guru 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 cooker.
Whether you're in your backyard playing with the kids, relaxing by the pool, or hanging out with friends and family, a quick check on your phone over Bluetooth ensures your food is on target.
New Patent-Pending 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 DynaQ 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 DynaQ 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 DynaQ'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.
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 DynaQ comes with optional 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.
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.
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.
There are hundreds of grills on the market these days, which is why we at BBQ Guru created a massive collection of adapters so you can use our temperature controls. The DynaQ will work with almost any charcoal or wood-fired grill, so you can rest assured knowing that you'll be able to take advantage of its outstanding features, no matter what you're cooking on. All you need to do is check the BBQ Guru website and go to the Help Me Choose Guru Guide

The Science Behind Better BBQ Temperature Control
The best BBQ is tender, juicy, and delicious. Achieving that kind of perfection is only possible when you can precisely control your cooking time and temperature. From beginners to the most seasoned BBQ pitmasters, these two factors remain the biggest challenges in outdoor cooking. When you master cooking at precise, even temperatures over a set period of time, the tough, chewy protein fibers in meat called collagen transform incredibly to the tender, tantalizing, and amazingly delectable BBQ we all crave. The problem is that trying to control temperature with most grills and smokers is very difficult. Here’s an example of unmanaged temperature fluctuations in a normal cooker.
It’s nearly impossible to cook great BBQ with those kinds of unstable temperature swings. Because of this, many frustrated people end up with tough, dried out meat that no one enjoys. That’s why the minds at BBQ Guru invented a revolutionary line of high-tech devices that provide you with the automated precision of oven-like temperature control in outdoor cooking and food temperature tracking that, until now, has never before been possible. Simply attach your Guru control to your cooker, set your desired temperature, and, almost like magic, it consistently maintains your target temperature so that in no time, you will be making the best BBQ you ever have for your family and friends.
Using a high precision digital thermometer, Guru controls create the desired temperature inside your grill and continuously monitor temperature fluctuations throughout your cook. The oscillating fan system uses a variable flow rate to fine-tune the amount of oxygen inside your grill and will either increase or decrease your charcoal’s heat, helping you to maintain the perfect temperature and achieve better tasting BBQ.
Controlled Air Flow for Precise Temperature
SET IDEAL COOKER TEMPERATURES
PROBES CONSTANTLY TAKE PRECISE READINGS
FAN CIRCUITRY PROVIDES AIR FLOW
Guru controls start with a high precision digital thermometer placed inside the cooker. It sends these readings back to the main control unit that measures temperature fluctuations. It then regulates a specially calibrated fan blade system that feeds just the right amount of oxygen into the cooker. This increases or decreases the intensity of your charcoal’s heat to create your perfect temperature.
