just did a butt with the auber pit controler backed up by the maverick remote thermometer. No more worries, love it. basically set and forget. I was able to sleep all night without any alarms going off.

    I  hear good reports on the Auber products.  I have a DigiQ and it too works like a charm.  For ribs, butts and briskets I wouldn't want to be without it.

    I've been using my DigiQ DX2 for quite a while.  It's solid, except I've had a probe failure.  The controller is very weather resistant. 

    I recently bought an Auber from another gentleman on this forum. Haven't used it yet, but I'm impressed with the construction and simplicity.  I plan on using it for a firebox for my cold smoker.

    That said, I've been cooking more and more not using any controller.  I did spare ribs tonight and adjusted temp along the way to my setpoint - when we wanted to eat.  The nitrous oxide, turbo-boost was foiling them the last hour.

    Check, poke, bend and play with your cook and get a feel for the temp and how it impacts the bark and texture.  All work and no play make Jack a dull boy. :)
    This is my signature line just so you're not confused.
