I'm in the market for one now.. I've got a big cook coming up in a few weeks for my kids birthday and will end up having to do an overnight cook. I'm not really interested in waking up periodically like I have in the past to check, or have to tweak it around and dial it in all night before I go down.
I have a large, and I do a fair bit of L&S cooks, but usually do some smaller butts and briskets that I don't have to do overnight, just early morning and done mid evenings.
With that said- I'm not sure how extreme I need to go, but willing to spend the money if it's worthwhile.
I like the idea of the cyberQ. Would be nice to control/check on it via my phone or ipad. Would be nice on the weekends to check on it while playing golf, or out running errands if need be. However, the price is probably at the top end of what I want to spend at the moment.
Then theres the regular DigiQ DX.. same thing minus the ability to check it via phone/tablet, right?
PartyQ is pretty interesting. No food probes, which isn't a huge, huge deal. I have a thermapen, and would normally be around when I assume the meat is close to finished, so I can check that if need be. I like that it's battery operated so I don't have to plug anything in, which isn't a huge deal regardless..
Each is about $100 inbetween them... which ones is probably the best buy? I'm mainly looking for something to just keep the BGE at a temp I set it at, and control the fire.
