If Stoven can not maintain temperature automatically, why people use Stoven.
It appears that you have answered your own question, the company has been around since 2000 and this is the first ive ever heard of the Stoven. They made a product for which there is very little to no demand and at a price point that is ridiculous.

Essentially they charging $350 to add a pellet feeder to a Weber kettle. For $350 you can buy a WSM or make 3 UDS with money to spare, its perplexing that they didnt take this into account before creating the Stoven.

This sounds like an amazing idea, make it so that its easy for people to attach your burner to their propane grill. I think most people would still want use of their grill so with your burner attached it should not affect the grill. The only challenge I see is whether or not gas grills are good at maintaining temps, in my experience most of them have air leaks.
