Default Pit controllers (BBQ Guru/stoker).. anyone use one?

I've had mine for a year and a half. Love it. Great for pork and beef jerky especially.

I love my BBQ Guru. I wouldn't cook a contest without it!

Used a DigiQ II for years on Large Big Green Eggs. Performed flawlessly with multiple 16 hour cooks back to back every weekend. A few friends recently bought the WiFi Gurus, but they're too plasticky IMO for $500 and a pain in the ass to configure. BBQ Guru DigiQ gets my vote any day of the week. I have another one coming when my Stump's XL Baby ships!

I looked at your build a while back. Beautiful work, and a great design. the firebricks in the chute was a nice touch!

No - but it looks interesting. If I was starting over, I'd probably take a closer look.

I love my BBQGuru! I use it on a UDS for everything from an hour smoke for steaks to all night pulled pork or briskets. I keep the volume just high enough to wake me if the alarm goes off, sorry to my neighbors though.

Though a cool feature, I think the computer interface is a luxury feature you don't have to have but is still nice. Then again so is the controller.

Now if I could only afford an XL Egg or Primo...
