Maverick's, woo's, digi q's, temp controllers etc. etc... hey i'm in canada and it's not so easy to get all these things as the egg dealer has no idea what 1/2 this stuff is.. I went there the other day and asked if he could get me a woo and he looked in his books and said no, i have nothing listed like that " that's probably made in China" he said...( i kinda chuckled).. I am thinking the temp controller would be good idea for long slow cooks
Funny to hear mention of the Woo - it's my most used addition. I have a Guru as well as I'm a bit of a gdaget nerd. Put simply the Guru works and does what it's supposed to very well, it's also pretty robust and not too complicated. If it's raining I usually just put a ziploc bag around the manin unit and prop it up on a stone so the rain is less likely to get into the sockets - it also means I can see the display from the window. No it's not necessary but as someone else said the beauty of setting the temp for a long cook and then going out is a nice feature, to be honest all those wires mean it doesn't feel the same but sometimes that's what I want. Other times I just let the egg take care of itself, it's very stable temperature wise if you give it a little time.
My top purchase to add to the Guru was a DC extension lead so I can plug the AC into the house and run a long DC lead out through the catflap to the egg. At my last house I was planning to bury a DC cable out to the egg or mount a socket on the outside of my garage. The 12VDC connector is the same as the Weber rotisserie.
I did think of a Stoker as it runs on 1-wire, keeping the whole controller in the house and running a wire out to the egg for the sensors but I'd still need DC for the fan.
