I've been studying discussion of these devices on this forum, as well as the reviews on the naked whiz website. I'm thinking I only need one of the cheaper models, as the primary objective is to control the temperature and they all apparently do this.
My question is what temperature ranges do they work at? Are they primarily effective for low and slow cooks, like 225 or 250? Or do they blow hard enough to hold temperatures around 350, 400 or maybe higher?
I have seen some discussion about the auber instruments controller (which I may be leanings towards because of price) and the possibility of upgrading the fan from the 6.5 cfm to the 20. Is this necessary? How does the partyq or the ique110 compare in terms of temperature range ability?
Also, when you use these devices is it best to manipulate the vents and then introduce the controllers once the target temperature is reached, or can you simply light the egg, set the target temperature on the device and let the device do all the work?
