Product Information


The IQ130 blows up the feature list by including a second food probe and Smartphone connectivity. It uses a long range, Bluetooth Low Energy module to hook up with qSmart, our free simple-to-use app, to make remote monitoring and control a breeze! Program an alarm to let you know when your food is done and your Smartphone wakes you from napping on the couch! Now THAT's how to smoke meat in the 21st century!

Your Android device must be version 4.3 or higher for the app to be installed. iPhones will need to be 4S or later, iPad 3 or later, any iPad Mini, and 5th generation iPods or later when the app does become available.

Our competitors chose WiFi for their communication protocol. Why did we choose Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)? Well, it was easy. Turns out that BLE is more affordable and simpler to use. It was the only way we could sell you a complete Automatic Blower Controller kit with 3 pit/food probes, power supply, and adapter with smartphone connectivity for under $270.

Bluetooth Low Energy is not your father's Bluetooth. I have achieved 720' range (well over 2 football fields!), line of sight over a concrete road. Your mileage will vary as the range is reduced as more obstacles are placed between the IQ and the smartphone.
