CyberQ Wifi BBQ Temperature Control Setup Screen

Control Setup Screen

To access the CONTROL SETUP from the MAIN SCREEN display, press and hold the UP and DOWN keys together for 3 seconds, then press the LEFT KEY. To return to the MAIN SREEN press the UP and DOWN keys together.

Once in CONTROL SETUP, pressing the UP or DOWN keys singly will index up and down through the list of shown parameters as follows:

Scroll through values in the CONTROL SETUP SCREEN using the UP/DOWN keys. To modify a value, press the M/E key. Use the LEFT/RIGHT keys select the digit to be modified. Adjust the value with the UP/DOWN Keys. Press the M/E key to save. To return to the MAIN SREEN, press the UP and DOWN keys together.

When CONTROL SETUP is in the top line (with arrow), pressing the LEFT or RIGHT key will index to the other setup screens.

Cook Hold


COOK HOLD defines the temperature that the cook setpoint will be reset to when the TIMER expires, if TIMEOUT action is set to HOLD. The default is 200° F. Set using the UP/DOWN keys.

Timeout


TIMEOUT defines the action that will be taken when the timer counts to 00:00:00. The selections are NO ACTN, HOLD, ALARM, SHDN. The default is NO ACTION. Set using the UP/DOWN keys.

Alarm Deviation Setpoint

If the temperature of the pit deviates above the setpoint by the alarm deviation setpoint, the alarm will sound and the display will blink COOK TEMP HIGH and the temperature value.

If the temperature of the pit deviates below the setpoint by the alarm deviation setpoint, the alarm will sound and the display will blink COOK TEMP LOW and the temperature value.

The alarm is only allowed once the temperature gets near the cook temperature setpoint. The alarm deviation is settable from 10-100° F and the factory default is 50° F.

Ramp (Cook and Hold)


When the ramp is set to on, the low and slow ramp mode is enabled. The ramp selection tells the control which sensor to ramp from, so the selections are off, Food1, Food2, Food3. This mode is used for slow cooks so your food (meat) never over-cooks. This feature will gradually lower the pit temperature to the food X set point temperature when the food is within approximately 30° of being done. The controller will hold the pit temperature slightly above your food set point as long as there is fuel. This feature is similar to cook and hold, but the control calculates everything for you. The factory default setting is off, so you must enable this feature to use it. Note when using this feature, you may want to start your pit temperature a little higher than normal to reduce cook time and not overcook your food.

Open Lid Detect


This feature will allow recovery to the cooking temperature without overshoot after you open the cooker’s lid. When open lid detect is set to off and you open your pit’s lid, the temperature will drop. The inrush of oxygen can cause the blower to over-fire the coals and cause overshoot when the lid is shut again. When open lid detect mode is on, it detects when the pit’s lid has been opened and minimizes the blower running during that time. Some overshoot will always be present when your pit’s lid is opened and closed even if the blower is off, because it still introduces oxygen to the fire. The factory default is ON, so you must turn this OFF if you have problems with excess air currents in your pit.

When open lid detect is enabled during startup, the rate of temperature rise of your pit will be limited to preventing over-firing. This will make a typical startup to a temperature of 250° F take a minimum of about 20-30 minutes and will also help to eliminate startup overshoot.
