Good morning and hello to all. First post for me.
I was fortunate to get one of the PartyQs before they went on backorder. It is an awesome little tool. And, they have incredible customer service...I actually ordered the wrong adapter and they sent a replacement immediately when I emailed. Great customer service like this is hard to find now.
The PartyQ worked exactly as advertised for me. Very easy set up and removal. I set the temp and it held the temp perfectly so far...through 6 hour ribs and 12 hour boston butt. Same batteries through 18 hours and battery level still indicates battery remaining.
If temp is lower than desired the unit will run continuously until temp reaches about 10-15 degrees below target. It will then begin cycling on and off...until the desired temp is reached. Thereafter it continuously cycles as needed to keep temp as desired. If temp goes higher it discontinues the puffing.
The probe on my unit plugged into the PartyQ. I read some previous questions about serviceability. It would appear that if I have a problem I can simply get a new probe from the company.
Bottom line...it was perfect for what I wanted. It is a simple and cost effective way to maintain a desired temperature over longer cooks where I don't want to stay close by the Egg all of the time.
Have a Merry Christmas.
