Anyone use one on their ceramic grills? How about an ash basket? What are your thoughts?

I used the DigiQ for years on my BGE. Even though once you get to know your EGG you can get pretty good at setting the lower and upper vents for the temp you want, personally I slept better at night knowing that the BBQ Guru DigiQ was there minding the smoker.

Now I have the ceramic Monolith with the CyberQ and am glad I switched to it from the BGE.

You asked, "BBQ GURU or DigiQ" the first is a company the second is one of their products.

The BBQ Guru DigiQ works great. There is still a bit of learning curve. You need to find out with your grill how open the slide on the fan should be, I have found with all three of my smokers about 1/4 of the way open works. Also, you need to figure out how open your top vent should be. I would say that as you start to approach your target temp, try closing it down to a "slit", maybe about 1/8 inch.

Done a couple of cooks with the the digi-Q and it is awesome. Can cook overnight. Last cook had the fire going for 13 hours without any hiccups.
