Default Guru question

All, I have built a 6ft rf smoker with a 30" x 18" firebox. I want to add a guru type control. What would be best? Thanks for your help!

Yeah I don't think the standard fan is going to be enough for that, I would recommend the larger fan (25 cfm) and the DigiQ DX2.

Can't help with a suggestion but let us know what you decide and how it works on a couple of cooks. I would really like to know how one would work on a RF stickburner.

From experience with my stick burner save your money. The 10 cfm just isn't big enough. Also you can't control the burn rate of wood like you can with briquettes or lump. I don't want you to be disappointed.

I would call the folks at Guru and discuss it with them - they have been very helpful to me with my Tucker Cooker.
