Cookshack Releases New IQ5 Controller

Cookshack’s innovative technology for smoker ovens will change the face of barbecue with the release of the new IQ5 Controller.

The IQ5 controller is the newest technology in commercial cooking, smoking, and holding. Restaurants, food trucks, and backyard chefs alike enjoy sleep with the ability to set a smoker, leave and come back in the morning with a day’s worth of smoked foods.

The IQ5 controller allows for up to three stages of cooking, including smoke, cook and hold steps. Since pellets produce more heat under 180°F, all three of these stages are important. The smoke stage adds the smoke flavor, the cook stage gets foods to their required internal temperatures while the hold stage allows the meat to stay hot while sitting in the smoker until the food is ready to be served.

Consistency is easier than ever to achieve. The IQ5 controller includes a digital readout, meat probe attachment, up to three stages of cooking options and USB port to download and keep track of cooking cycles. With the IQ5 controller, you have the option to download your smoking, cooking and holding logs to a FAT formatted USB flash drive. The IQ5 Controller will maintain 1023 cycles which is 512 hours of cook time.  This controller is standard equipment on Cookshack commercial smoker ovens with a capacity of 100 to 750 pounds.  Options are available for upgrading your current equipment from the IQ4 controller to the new IQ5 controller.

The Cookshack IQ5 Controller also has, for the first time in Cookshack history, the ability to program your own pre-set buttons. Eight pre-set buttons come programmed with standard meat cuts such as brisket, ribs, and prime rib.  However, changing the presets is as easy as setting your times and temperatures then pressing the coordinating pre-set in less than five seconds! Set yourself apart from the competition with this great new feature.

For more information about the new IQ5 Controller or any Cookshack Commercial or Competition Smoker, please give us a call at 1.800.423.0698.  You can also view a video on our Cookshack YouTube Channel or website to see the new controller in action!

Do you test commercial smokers before shipping?

For over 52 years Cookshack has placed quality as a high priority in manufacturing all of our smokers, pellet grills and charbroilers.  Each unit undergoes testing before packaging for shipment.  The Final Assembly Teams in each of the production lines conducts the tests.  Documentation of these tests is on an inspection sheet that is unique to each unit.  The employees involved sign off on their craftsmanship.

Tests that are common to all of our units are the Hipot test, a Ground Continuity Test, and electronic controller test.  Hipot is an abbreviation for high potential and is a term given to a class of electrical safety testing instruments used to verify electrical insulation.  Ground Continuity Monitor is used to measure the electrical continuity of the circuit’s path to ground.  Testing of the electronic controller is done by making sure each button functions properly and lights up on the digital display.

Each electric smoker in our SmartSmoker Line (SM160/260/360) and each smoker in our Fast Eddy’s™ by Cookshack Line (FEC100/120) are tested by a process we call “running out.”  Power is supplied by plugging in and testing the unit to make sure that is can reach temperature and go into the hold cycle.  All units, except for the SM160, have wood added to them to make sure they smoke properly.  The electric smokers are testing for approximately 20 minutes at 190°F and then a hold temperature of 255°F.  The pellet-fired smokers are tested up to 340°F for approximately three hours and then put into a hold cycle.  Cookshack has a separate room in the production area to run out the units.

Run Out Smoker Testing

Running out a unit before packaging

The Charbroiler line (CB024/036/048) is tested by powering the unit and setting the factory settings on the controller.  It is run for 30 minutes to ensure that the ignitor, draft fan, and auger is running properly.

The Fast Eddy’s™ by Cookshack Rotisserie models (FEC300/500/750) undergo additional tests.  The first test is a weld test.  The bottom of the smoker is filled with water to make sure it does not leak.  Then the wiring is checked by plugging the unit in to check the switches, foot pedal, motors, ignitors, and smoke evacuator.  Testing is completed to make sure that it can get up to the proper temperatures and the rotissiere is working properly.  The unit is set to 424°F, and when the unit reaches over 400°F, it is shut down.  This process takes a little over an hour.

The trailer (FETR) for the Fast Eddy’s™ by Cookshack Rotisserie models is tested by plugging it in to make sure all the wiring and lights are working properly.
