BBQ GURU controllers: Any users? Any stories about using one? Recommendations?


Joined Jun 30, 2012

My Christmas wish list includes more accessories for the Big Green Eggs. One thing I would like is a BBQ Guru controller. I've read about the 'DigiQ II' and the new wifi controller. I don't actually know anybody who has used one or both of these.

Comments and suggestion?

If you just want good temp control then look at the PitMaster IQ's.

I use the pitmaster iq also. No fancy wifi or other stuff just a good solid temp controller that works.

I've had a DigiQ II on my WSM for several years.  I love it.  It is as close to set and forget as you can have a charcoal smoker to be.

I have a Stoker tht I use on my BGE XL and Med and also on my UDS. I love the variety of things it will work on, the large number of probes that can be used, and it will control two units at once since I have two fans, a 10 CFM for the UDS and XL and a 5 cfm for the med BGE. The real time graphing is super and the alarms, controls, remote monitoring from a smart phone, etc are all things I like. I looked at the Gurus but hought the Stoker fit my needs a bit better.
