Default Pit fan & controller that will grow with me....

I was wondering if there is a pit fan & controller combo that I could use now with my Akorn but then grow with me when I add my XL BGE ?


I'm clueless as to the various types/brands.


I'm assuming there are models that will control two different pits, simulantaneously, providing I have the correct addaptors and fans.


Would really make it a breeze to do overnight smokes of butts and briskets.

I'm not really interested in being able to control on webpages and such.....just a solid reliable unit that can be trusted to run my pit temps with precision.

I have an akorn. I use and recommend the bbqguru cyberq2. It will do 2 pits and two meats. Just buy long probes for pit 2.

It will easily hold the akorn at 215 for 24+ hr on very minimal fuel. .25 top vent.

The CyberQ II and the Stoker can control 2 pits at the same time.
The difference is in their features.

I'm partial to my stoker. Unlimited expansion and works like a champ. Have used it on both my BGE and Stumps Prince.
