I understand the Auber controller is newer and not as prevalent around here; but help me think out loud here:
Auber - $125
Digi DX - $260
-Auber is just a pit temperate controller
-Digi controls pit and meat temperature
Where I am not seeing the justification of spending double on the Digi is with this:
When doing overnight cooks I plan to use my Maverick ET-7 for wireless monitoring of the meat temp and use of alarms.
Wouldn't the combination of the Auber and Maverick do everything I need it to?
Is there something I am missing?
I know the Digi has features such as open lid detection and ramp down, but is that worth double?
