CyberQ: View and Graph Your Cook in ShareMyCook

One of the most popular features of the ShareMyCook site is the "View My Recorded Cooks" page. Here you can watch your cook live or review previously recorded cooks. 

  1.  To view or graph a cook, you must first create a new cook. If you haven't already done so, please refer to that section for creating one.
  2. After you've created a cook, click on the "My Account" drop-down menu and select "My Recorded Cooks".
  3. Click "View Cook" next to the particular cook that you want to view.
  4. View Cook Button Options
    • While recording a live cook, you can select one of four options: Cook Details, Add Note, Start/Stop Recording, and Return to Device. 
    • Cook Details:  Click on "Cook Details" to expand the page and see the details about your cook including notes you saved, the time left on your cook, and any recipes or other information you saved when initially creating your cook. To hide these details, click on the "Cook Details" button again.
    • Add Note:  Click this button to add notes about your cook. You can select the date and time of your note, type in a short description, and attach the note to a specific probe.  For example, if you changed your target cooking temperature, you could make a note at that precise time and select "Pit" as the note type as well as add the details about what you changed.  If the date and time you selected was within the time frame of your recorded graph, it will make a note on the graph. All of your notes are added to the "Cook Details" area and can be accessed by clicking the "Cook Details" button. If you want to edit or delete a note, click on the "Cook Details" button. Next to each note there is an "Edit" button that can be clicked to edit or delete your note. 
    • Stop/Start Recording: If you are done recording, you can click the "Stop Recording" button and it will no longer record temperatures. When you have finished your cook, stop recording before unplugging your probes or device. If you need to temporarily stop recording, click "Stop Recording". The button will change to "Start Recording". If you want to resume recording on that same cook, click "Start Recording". We recommend creating a new cook when cooking a new meal and not reusing an old cook.
    • Return to Device: While recording you can set a timer, change your food done temperatures, or raise your pit temperature by clicking on "Return to Device".
  5. View Cook Graphing and Temperature Gauges
    • Gauges: While recording your cook, temperature gauges will appear above your graph. As the arrow gets closer to pointing straight up, the closer you are to your target temperature. This allows you to see the status of your temperatures at a quick glance.
    • Charting: While recording, your chart will update about every 15-30 seconds. *Note: When you first start recording, it may take a couple of minutes for data to be recorded before the graph appears normal. The dotted horizontal lines on the graph are your target temperatures. This provides a quick visual of how close you are to your desired temperature.  The lines on the graph are color-coded to specific probes on your device. The graph will only show data for probes that you have plugged into your device. For example, if you only have the pit probe and 1 food probe plugged in, only those temperatures will display on the graph.  You can hide and show different probe temperatures by clicking on the coordinating colored square at the top of the chart. This allows you to be able to quickly and easily view just one temperature at a time. This is especially helpful when recording a pit temperature and 3 food temperatures all at once. At the bottom of your chart you will see two white circles with two black horizontal lines. Drag these left or right to zoom into specific areas of your cook. There is also a "Zoom Out" button that is helpful after zooming in or if you're watching a live cook and more data has come in. This will allow you to see the full chart again.
    • Exporting Image of Graph or Cook Data:  If you want to save an image of your graph, click on the down-arrow in the top right of your chart. This will prompt you the "Download as", and present you with several image format types. If you want to delve deeper into your data, you can export your data points as a CSV file and open it up in Excel.
  6. Share your cook on social media by using the social media share widget under your chart. You can share previously recorded or live recordings. The image used for the social share will be the Gallery Image you set for the cook, which can be changed by clicking the "Edit" button in your "My Recorded Cooks" area. The headline of your social share will be the name of your cook. The details of your social share come from the description you entered when creating the cook. This can be updated by clicking the "Edit" button in your "My Recorded Cooks area". 
  7. Upload Images: upload images of your cook and show off what you make! Although you can only set one Gallery Image to represent your cook, you can upload additional photos that can be seen in the details of your cook. Some people show different stages of their cook or just show off the beauty shots at the end.. Click on the "Choose image..." button under the chart. You can add one image at a time. If you wish to delete an image later, click on the X in the top right of the image. Your Gallery Image will show up here as well, but you can only set that image in the Add/Edit area of the cook.
  8. Cook Ratings: You can view how others rate your cook with our 1-5 star rating system. If you want to remove/add this option, go back to edit your cook details in your "My Recorded Cooks" area. 
  9. Comments: Others can praise your amazing cook. If you want to remove individual comments or turn off comments entirely, go to your "My Recorded Cooks" area and remove/turn off comments in the edit area of your cook details.
