Default Temp control units on UDS?

Maybe this is a naive question, but do people ever use temp control units on a UDS? Are there units made specifically for the design of UDS's?

I don't have one personally but I do not see why you couldn't. Anything that would work for a WSM or ProQ should work for a UDS.

several people have used Gurus on UDS's. Nice toy but not realy needed on one. Once you get temp set your biggest enemy with a UDS is peeking and ash build up.

I agree w Norco. I use one on a couple of my cookers but but only for the temp ramp down feature.
