I was at a rib competition a month ago and I used my Stoker controller.
Some might think it's cheating but isn't using the BGE cheating?

Who cares if its "cheating" or not? I have one, use it mainly on overnighters or to smoke sausages at temps around 150. Used it before on ribs. I would suggest knowing how to manually control the egg so you are not relying on it in case the electricity goes out or god forbid it breaks mid cook.
Don't know which ones are considered middle of the road. I have an Auber and its on the low end, but works great. Check out The Naked Whiz's website. He's reviewed just about all (if not all) of the ones out there. So much info it will make your head spin.
