Great Backyard Grilling iPad app lets you have a one-of-a-kind grilling experience. Here is our complete review:

Whether you are new to grilling or has considered yourself an expert, this app shows you a great collection of tempting grilling dishes that would leave you drooling.  With more than 50 mouth-watering recipes to try, you’ll surely never run out of grilling ideas for your friends and family.

Great Backyard Grilling has a lot of features to make your shopping, preparation, and cooking time a pleasure. The interface is simple yet truly attractive. It is also easy to navigate through the recipes as they are divided into different categories – Beef, Pork, Lamb, Seafood, Chicken, as well as Fruits and Vegetables.

In each recipe page, there is a list of all the ingredients, a step-by-step procedure, and a delicious-looking photo of the finished product. There is also a built-in timer on top of the recipe so you can make sure that you won’t overcook your food.  The difficulty of the recipe is also shown in each page. Plus, this app can automatically calculate the amount of ingredients needed for serving a number of people.  However, this feature is only applicable in serving either 4 or 6 people. For 7 or more servings, you already need to do manual calculation.

With Great Backyard Grilling, important information and techniques can be written in the Notes section of the recipe page. You can also add some recipes to your Favorites for easy reference in the future. Sharing the recipes to anyone is possible through Facebook or email. Moreover, shopping for the ingredients has also made easier as this app combines all the ingredients together in your shopping list so you won’t ever forget an item.

On the downside, the videos are still unavailable for viewing. You still have to wait for updates to use this feature. Another negative aspect of Great Backyard Grilling is that it does not support multi-tasking. It won’t save your data once you close this app so be careful especially when you have your timer on.

Great Backyard Grilling is available on iTunes for $3.99.

Pros – a collection of easy and delicious recipes; recipes are categorized; a built-in timer; shopping list feature; automatic ingredient calculator in serving 4 or 6 people

Great Backyard Grilling iPad app lets you enjoy grilling not only on the weekends, but every single day with its 50 succulent dishes. This app also has several features that would help you from shopping and preparing the ingredients to grilling and serving the sumptuous feasts.
