I am a big fan of the BBQ Guru Party Q. However, I did learn a lesson over the Christmas holiday. I put new duracell batteries in the party Q at eight in the evening and got to smoking a pork butt. At six the next morning the temp was at 225 (exactly where I set it) but the batteries were pretty much gone. I replaced the batteries with four more new duracells and within 4 hours they were dead. The temps were in the 20's all night and day. I ended up just removing the Q and finishing up without the device.
I still love the little gadget but did learn that it does have its limitations.
