New DigiQ II, Digital Competitor by BBQ Guru

I know there was a discussion about this a while ago. Anybody heard anything lately? I had a look through their web site but I don't see any updated information yet.

I haven't heard anything further. I joined their forum, because I wanted to ask if it could be set lower then 110°F; but for some reason I can't seem to post. The current Competitor will only monitor to a low of 110°F.

I like the compact size, and separate connections for the pit (cabinet, fan), and the meat. The analog model had them spliced into one connector.

That's one of the same questions I have. I fell that is a must if I was to consider it. It appears they are offering them for sale now but still not that much info around on them.

Over on the BBQ Guru forum on the link listed below Bob Trudnak is indicating this new unit can be used with the Power Raptor and specifically mentions the Bradley. At the tale end of the thread he also indicates the temperature range is 32 F to 475 F.

Starting to sound pretty impresive!

Yeah! I was just getting ready to post that. I'm Versa :)

I had to join with a different e-mail and user name, in order to post.

Thanks Versa.... I mean Habs!  ;)

I would really be interested in the performance of this unit with the Bradley. I thought I read somewhere they felt it would be +/- 2 degrees. I also see the probes are rated to 700 degrees.

I think I want one!  ::)

I just hope it's not like when I tried to order the Reveo.... or the Cabela's Commercial Dehydrator....  >:(

I'm getting ready to call him also, just can't make up my mind on what color to get. ;D

But seriously I think I'm going to call, maybe on Friday. I wanted to wait, but I'm concerned if I wait too long, he will be several weeks back up on production to fill his orders. Also I haven't seen any discounts for those who already have the Competitor.

Get the pink one Habs!  ::)

I agree... I think there will a pretty good demand on them so ordering early would help. I would like to here some real world reports on them but then you would probably be waiting a while.

Mike: are you considering this equipment as a replacement for that fine PID you built?

I'm definitely considering it. I like some of the options this would give me such as the ramp feature. I haven't really made up my mind yet but I'm leaning that way.

Keep monitoring the forum. I read one post in which one person will be posting his results, with pictures. I believe s/he stated they would post this information this weekend.

By the way, I was leaning towards the pink.  :)
