controller for any BGE, primo our any other style smoker

I have the DigiQ 2 and Cyber Q wifi and use in on my large PRIMO smoker. It s like the BGE , but oval and black

i like the DigiQ 2 better. Just plug it in, set the temperature and walk away.
the longest cook i've done was 4 days, i did not even peek. It as a fan and two temp probes. One for the air , the other for the food

http://bbqguru.com/products/smoker-grill.html

i also have a gas BBQ. the two outdoor tools complement each other

i never use my egg without using the controller. it is set and forget

i also use and LOVE my electric LOOFTLIGHER. http://www.looftlighter.com/en/home/ it heats the charcoal in less than 30 seconds. no more fussy starting

I just noticed that the first post in this thread is fourteen years old! Guess it's an important topic...

Looking at a "tailgate" Traeger at Costco for about $300. Will need extension cord though for electrical. These are wood pellet grills.

After looking at this, reading reviews, and pondering for awhile, I just ordered one of these...

Welcome to the forum! How do you anticipate using this 40 lb. grill? It seems to require quite a bit of set up, and skilled use IMO. Will you be smoking with it, and how long would you plan to stay at the campsite after you set it up?

Have you ever used one of their larger units?

Thanks,

Peter

Yep, and it has very good reviews.

A bit on the pricey side, but the grills themselves are cast iron and they overall seem to hold up very well, for many years, from what I read.

XXL BGE and it's own trailer .... or a full size smoker that is *built* on a trailer. Anything that's cooked in under 30 hours has been rushed ....

Hi

I have three BGE's out on the deck and a Meadow Creek pig cooker down in the yard. I'm *very* spoiled when it comes to grilling and smoking. The Mini Max looks nice, but wow is it heavy. It's not just heavy to get in and out of the tow. It also needs to be well tied down in transit. Total weight probably should include a block to operate it on. The bottom does get hot in operation. I'd also include a plate setter and a few other odds and ends. Depending on the starting weight (I've seen 85 lb and 90 as the start point), you may be well over 100 lb for the total load.

Yes, they are tempting aren't they .....85 lb isn't that heavy .... I have no doubt that once you worked with it, the Mini Max would cook very well. Each size has it's quirks.

Here's the final question:

Do you trust the rest of the world and leave it sitting out at the camp site? In 60+ years of doing this, I have *never* had anything wander off from a site. I still wonder about something like a BGE ... Heavy may be a good thing ....

Bob

Uncle Bob I use to have three GreenEggs but two of them did walk, one to my son's home another to my daughter's. I am now down to one big green egg, a MAK 2 Star pellet grill and a TEK Cherokee infrared grill.
Not sure about the 30 hours but at least 5 to 16 depending on what I am BBQing.
