How does the Guru work with the BGE’s and how do you all like it? I am thinking hard about getting one, any advice?
I would also like to use it on the WSM so I am sure an additional adaptor will also be in the works.

I've never used one on the BGE - At contests when we were using BGE's the two without gurus held temp just as good as without. But - having a guru is nice and I got the adapter door for the egg just in case I change my mind ;)

I know where to get one at a discount.:oops:

You will like it!

Better temp control and lower fuel usage as well as longer burns.

What do you want? What size egg?

I'm guessing you want an Egg adaptor (Need size) and a WSM adaptor
A pit viper 10 CFM fan
DigiQDX controller

Is that right?

I used mine on my Large BGE today and won't do another low and slow without it. Very nice to be able to set it and forget it…gives me more time to chase the kids around:)

Hey bud, PM me a quote for their low end gizmo for a drum (fan, adapter, pit probe, food probe). I want to run some side by sides against my gizmos this spring.

Like puting tits on a bull.
A BGE runs all day by itself already.

Just sayin.

Its hard to say this, but I'm one of those few (most won't admit it) that have had my share of memorable faux pas cooks with the BGE. Anything from overnighters that died out or just unstable low temps. Mine are dialed in at 350* no problem! I rolled with it and when I finally pulled the plug and got the Digi Q II, hooked it up and let it do its thing, I wondered why I waited so long!

I don't use it every time I cook, but when I want piece of mind and set temps I hook it up.

I tried my guru the other day on my WSM for a few hours and the temp cruised spot on. I was really impressed. I didn't mess with it a whole lot I just wanted to try it out. Next time I try it I want to use it on an overnighter and see how it goes.

I'll admit it too. The BGE is a great cooker and as stable as any I've tried but the overnight cooks can kill you. I decided to get the Guru after a costly 130 degree wake up 2 weeks ago and won't look back now.

If I'm cookin low n slow the Guru will be doin it's thing.
