If there comes a time that I didn't need to store info on their server (which we know nothing about the security of) and /or the app (which should only require info like Internal /external IP address and ports (and maybe user/pass for guru), I may reconsider.

Sometimes free isn't free, especially when some hacker could grab their database and have a field day with our identities.
Why couldn't you set up a special SSID for it, and only allow the specific IP/port combinations the BBQGURU needs? Most wireless routers and access points these days allow multiple SSIDs...
