Barbecue thermometer to Homie bridge

cloudbbq-homie is a service which runs on a Linux device to connect to a CloudBBQ or iBBQ Bluetooth BBQ thermometer, and send its readings to an MQTT broker following the Homie convention. This allows you to control it via OpenHAB and other home automation software, log readings to InfluxDB with homie-influx, or integrate with various other compatible tools.

This is not an officially supported Google product.


If you want to run cloudbbq-homie as a system service, you can install the latest release from our Debian repository:

$ curl -L https://homiers.jfrog.io/artifactory/api/security/keypair/public/repositories/homie-rs | sudo apt-key add -
$ echo "deb https://homiers.jfrog.io/artifactory/homie-rs stable main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/homie-rs.list
$ sudo apt update && sudo apt install cloudbbq-homie

Alternatively, you may install with cargo install:

$ cargo install cloudbbq-homie


  1. Copy cloudbbq-homie.example.toml to cloudbbq-homie.toml and edit it to configure your MQTT broker and other details. The comments there should explain what the fields do. (If you installed the Debian package, the config file is installed as /etc/cloudbbq-homie/cloudbbq-homie.toml.)
  2. Turn on your BBQ thermometer.
  3. Run cloudbbq-homie from the same directory as the config file.
  4. Try connecting to your MQTT broker with a Homie controller such as HoDD to see your probe values. Or use homie-influx to store the readings in InfluxDB so you can draw charts with Grafana.
