My next purchase will be something of the sorts. Although I read mixed reviews on all of them. Anybody own one of these and use one? What do you think?

I have a 22.5 WSM

I use the Stoker with my 18" WSM's and I'm happy with the product.... Customer support could be better but the product is great.

If you have some soldering skills check this out. https://github.com/CapnBry/HeaterMeter/wiki I'm in the process of building one now just waiting on the board to get here so I can solder it up. Razz

I have one of the earlier non-wifi Stokers and love it. We've used it at competitions and home. You can add as many meat probes as you want (just need more 1/4" stereo splitters). Then with the free StokerLog program, you can connect the data from the Stoker to your computer to graph out all of the temp probes -- so you can see when the big meats go through their "stall". I have a Stump-clone smoker that we built and the Stoker allows me to get about 9 hours of unattended cooking with the use of the Stoker -- my cook temp doesn't vary more than 1-2 degrees from my target temp. That was always nice during competitions -- allowed me to get plenty of sleep at night in our travel trailer.
