I have a BGE and use a DigiQ DX2 for overnight cooks. I got along just fine without it but for some reason couldn't sleep very well. I would wake up in a panic several times only to find that the needle hadn't moved 5 degrees either way. Bottom line, if you're like me and need to sleep easy buy one, if you trust it enough to sleep like a baby then spend your money elsewhere. I guess I'm paranoid about wind and temp changes since I live in the midwest where the elements are very unstable. Best of luck on whatever you decide to buy.
