The reason why I rely on these so much is because it takes the guesswork out of temperature adjusting, and wondering what temp I've got the shoulder or brisket cooking at. and the best part about it is the Ron Popeil factor, you just Set it and Forget it. the setup helps maintain precise temperature control over a long period of time. I usually make brisket for 23 hours so the controller is crucial. once you start using it, you'll never go back.
No matter the wait, it'll be worth it. I am a loyal customer for life of BGE. I don't think they'd be playing games with their customer base. And, as I've posted here before, this is like a 10 year old kid waiting for the latest video game at Christmas, or a new bike. But, when I got a new bike as a kid in Wisconsin, I couldn't ride it anyway because of the weather. Weather never stops BGE usage! Now that I live in AZ, the BGE can be used all year.
