You miss one checkpoint on your competition BBQ schedule timeline and it can cost you dearly! It happens to every comp pitmaster, it’s only a matter of time.

180Que solves this problem – it’s an automated alarm app that runs your schedule and much more. Maybe you need to adjust your schedule on the fly, or add things to do, collect notes during your cook etc. It’s all there.

180Que was developed by / for competition BBQ pitmasters. The user interface is optimized to make cook schedule creation as fast and easy as possible. And you do this exactly ONE time. After that you simply clone and edit schedules – easy as that.

If 180Que is missing a BBQ schedule feature then just let us know – using the built in Support & Suggestions messaging feature.

After installing: Once installed, take a close look at the two sample schedules that are automatically created for you. If they make sense, then create a new event for your next competition and start entering all the items for your timeline. You only need to do this ONCE – that’s right, because you can clone this event for following events. Edit as needed and, you’re done!

Speaking of changing time, if you change the time of any schedule item, 180Que asks if you want to apply that change to the rest of the schedule – Now that’s a time saver.

Older devices: If you have an old Android phone in a drawer somewhere, odds are it will work just fine. You do not need data connectivity or use 180Que. You don’t have to worry about your daily phone getting lost, breaking or greasy. Reset that old phone to factory default and run through the simple installation steps below.

Note: 180Que does not collect any data from your device what so ever! The only reason network permission is needed is for crash reports that help us understand why 180Que might have crashed. Please see the ‘Explanation of permissions’ section below.



Note: After you click through ‘Become a beta tester’, Google Play needs a minute or two before you can download. Users report “Item Not Found message from Google Play. Just give them a minute to catch up and the download should work.

Explanation of permissions:

New: Access Wifi State – One of the new 180Que Pro features includes loose integration with WiFi BBQ Guru and Stoker systems.

Read phone status and identity – This is needed so phone calls aren’t rudely interrupted with an alarm going off in your ear.

Disable your screen lock – We need this so we can turn your screen on and overlay your keylock when an alarm goes off – saves you those steps.

Full network accessThis is for crash reporting only. Your schedules stays on your device, we do not collect any data other than stack trace in the event of a crash.

Run at startup – If your phone reboots we need to automatically resume your schedule if it was running.

Control vibrating – You can turn vibrate on independent of alarm volume.

Prevent phone from sleeping – This is part of the same permission for turning your screen on when an alarm happens.

Modify system settings – Goes along with setting vibration mode.




  1. Any chance an Apple version will be released?

    • Unfortunately, one can only develop for iOS on an Apple product. It’s a closed door policy at Apple and always has been. It just doesn’t make financial sense to purchase an Apple product to develop free apps for Apple products.

      On the other hand, you probably know someone who uses Android devices and has an old device in a drawer somewhere. You do NOT need cellular service to use 180Que, so if you can get your hands on a legacy Android device, do a factory reset, and it will probably work just fine in PDA mode. Who knows, you might even ditch that iOS device.

  2. 180Que solves this problem – it s an automated alarm app that runs your schedule and much more. Maybe you need to adjust your schedule on the fly, or add things to do, collect notes during your cook etc. It s all there.

  3. I dont have an adnriod phone will the app work with a wifi only tablet such as the Galaxy 4?

    • Thanks for writing Gary, yes – absolutely! 180Que does not require cell service at all. Try it out and see – it’s free!

  4. I love the application and have it on multiple devices. I would like to see an export or share function so that I may send the schedule to another device.

    A bonus would be sharing an individual step or series of steps to a teammate

    • Thanks Brian, we here at CalBQue labs have received this request more than any others combined, and from many of enthusiastic users. We’re always thinking several steps ahead, so while we’re wrapping up the 1.x feature set, we’re already hard at work contemplating several amazing and elegant ways of accomplishing schedule sharing / partial sharing / filtering, etc.

      Stay tuned, and until then, please enjoy release version 1.0.7 due to start updating soon.
