So for those interested I had my questions answered by both Guru and Stoker. Both the Guru DigiQ and the Stoker operate without the fan/blows attached.
The DigiQ - 3 meat temp probes and 1 pit probe.
Stoker - 6 ports for probes and has an expansion that can be purchased to give you more.
For me I decided on the Stoker with 6 probes to start with. I will monitor both ends of my pit and meats. As it is a new pit, I will most likely monitor the middle as well. This is what happens when you get a professional Geek meats BBQ :)
