Accessibility Comments

The app is accessible and it is possible to turn on the smoker, set temperature and time. Setting the smoker temperature is a bit challenging as it requires a voiceover user to double-tap, hold, and slide a finger up or down but it is definitely usable. It accessibly displays the smoker temperature as well as the temperature of the included meat thermometer although I find the iGrill to be more accurate. I recommend the app to any blind smoker users who purchase Masterbuilt Bluetooth smokers.

iOS Version

VoiceOver Performance

Button Labeling

Usability

The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver, but the interface could be easier to navigate and use.

Hi all,
Does anyone use this app and find it usable? I just got my first masterbuilt smoker, and it is not wanting to cowopperate with me.
Thanks so much,
Chris Harrington

Hi Chris,This app used to be quite accessible but they seem to have broken Voiceover accessibility in the last update. I'm going to send an email to customer service to let them know about the issues with the app. You can keypad on the smoker with a bit of memorization. Write me offlist (chipper2012@comcast.net) and I can explain. Hopefully they'll fix it soon.

Hi,
Not the same kind but I recently purchased a Rec Tec Stampede. The unit connects to your home wireless and the app for the phone is very accessible. I am loving it. It is a pellet cooker.
