Thanks for all of the advice. I'm looking at a new unit for Father's day :).  Question to y'all - go digital or smart smoker?

I have a Bradley original smoker from about 5 years ago.  If I was buying a new one I'd probably go with another Bradley original and put the money I saved toward an Auber PID controller.  Much more accurate temp control than anything from the factory and you can program it do a lot, too.  They are available in Single Probe or Dual Probe.

6 Rack DBS w/second heat element
Auber PID

I do agree if you are smoking sausage or fish the digital temps are no good for that. To big of a swing. I did have to buy a PID for that reason,but if I were not doing sausage I think I would be ok even doing fish.

Thanks for all of the input.  New original smoker arrived yesterday.  Looking at a PID mod coming soon!
