3 great grilling apps for your summer barbecues

Summer is around the corner, which means that outdoor cooking season is upon us. Got your favorite tongs and that secret rub? Good. Before heading to the grill, brush up on your open-flame skills with these three great grilling apps.
GrillTime
Timing is essential to grilling and barbecue. This simple grilling app, which is $2 on IOS and Android, helps you avoid over- or under-cooking every time. If it’s steak, you can tell GrillTime how thick it is and how well done you’d like it. It will even tell you when to flip.
Cooking for a pescatarian and a carnivore? Set multiple timers for different items and have them all ready at the same time. There’s also a guide with basic information, including standard grilling times, temperatures and instructions. No need to linger in the backyard, either. It’ll ping your Apple Watch when everything is done.
Weber Grills
Whether or not you own a Weber, this free companion app will help you master techniques for favorites, including steak, ribs and salmon, with short instructional videos. It includes a timer with preset times and the ability to adjust for thickness of meat and desired level of doneness.
You’ll find guides to lead you through grill setup, knife skills and food prep, and tips on how to properly cook fruits and vegetables over an open flame. With more than 300 recipes from Weber’s award-winning cookbooks, you won’t be cooking the same burgers, either. Each recipe features full-color photos, grocery lists and the ability to take notes and save favorites.
