Like its iPhone and iPod touch cousins, the Weber’s On the Grill app for the iPad has a colorful, clean and greatly intuitive interface connected to a wide variety of multi-media functions. At an affordable $4.99 from the iTunes store, this grilling app has more than 250 triple-tested recipes from cookbooks such as best-sellers Weber’s Way to Grill(TM), Weber’s Real Grilling(TM) and Weber’s Charcoal Grilling(TM)–all written by 2010 James Beard Award nominee Jamie Purviance. iPad users can tag favorite recipes; view videos; create and share master shopping lists from selected recipes to easily take to the grocery store; and browse by the app’s wide variety of recipe food categories (appetizers, red meat, pork, chicken, seafood, vegetables, fruits and yes, even desserts). Forty sauces, marinades and rubs are also part of the repertoire. Weber’s On the Grill app also features a handy grilling timer that sounds off when food is done.

The new Weber’s On the Grill app for iPad has additional elements from the iPhone app: There are more than three times the videos (27) that include instructional grilling techniques demonstrated by Purviance and those that show how to set up gas and charcoal grills for direct or indirect heat methods (which any experienced outdoor griller will tell you is the first thing to know). It also allows users to make notes right on the recipes–such as substitutions for ingredients, flagging recipes best for a crowd, or any other observations–just as one would do on the pages of a cookbook.

Each recipe has a bold and beautiful aspirational photo of the finished plating that can be enlarged with one tap. And, these images aren’t too fussy to seem unachievable; rather, they encourage and inspire the outdoor griller inside us all.
