How do I grill using the food temperature probe?

SmartChef® technology uses changing grill and food temperatures to attain real-time information about your grill and then provides you with the grill status via the Char-Broil® Gas Grill app.
Your new grill includes a food temperature probe that plugs into the Control Panel. It is important to properly place the food probe to get as accurate a temperature reading as possible, and know some basic care instructions.

  1. Insert the probe into the available port on the SmartChef Control Panel.
  2. Insert the probe into the thickest part of the food - not touching bone, fat or gristle.
  3. Make sure to clean your food temperature probe with warm soapy water before and after each use and wipe dry.
  4. Do not immerse or wash food temperature probe in the dishwasher.
