From The Manufacturer

The IQ110 connects to nearly any charcoal or wood fueled barbecue pit. Here’s the amazing part: You set the cooking temperature on the dial and it then regulates the cooking temperature just like a kitchen oven does. In fact, it regulates the cooking temperature BETTER than most kitchen ovens! And better than a kitchen oven, your foods cook in a smoky environment that is naturally moist resulting in foods that are juicy, fall-off-the-bone tender, and simply delicious. The IQ110 is installed on most kamados without tools. First, the adjustable adapter is slid into the lower vent door track. The IQ110 ‘s air hose is then connected to the adapter. Finally, the temperature sensor is attached to the cooking grate and plugged into the IQ110. The only thing left is to get hungry! Includes IQ110 Blower Box, Air Tube, AC Power Supply, 6’ Smoker Temperature Probe, Users Guide, and Small Adjustable Kamado Pit Adapter Kit. Fits small Big Green Eggs, Chargriller Akorn, Grill Dome, and any kamado with sliding lower vent door height between 1-5/8″ to 2-3/8″.

Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Easy to set up and get started within minutes.
Very easy to attach to the grilling pit
It is programmable and offers insight into the overall temperature graphing.
This affordable model is one of the cheapest controllers on the market, yet it did a top-level job keeping the temperature steady and resulting in mouthwatering juiciness.
The IQ110 Temperature Controller is very easy to set up, it doesn’t require any technical tools.
Suitable with nearly all Kamado style grills.
Unlike most thermostatic controllers that have a digital temperature input and readout, the IQ110 uses a knob to set the temperature and a multi-colored LED to indicate the temperature status.
What we found with the IQ110 was an easy installation, easy to operate, and most importantly, a very accurate temperature control for long periods of time.
The IQ110 is still a very good controller though, the temperatures were good and it was easy to set up.

What reviewers didn't like

Extremely minimalistic interface.
Made up of plastic
Lacks the cigarette lighter socket
Used via a dial, the main drawback of this model is its lack of display.
No storage box
Incredibly minimalistic interface.
I would recommend using a separate thermometer to monitor the cooker temperature due to the inherently lower precision to which an analog knob can be read.
The IQ110 did what it said it would do.? It does not have the features of some of the fancier controllers out there, such as digital readouts, food probes, etc.
We also found the build and structure to be a little clunky and a bit big.
