I swore that I would never get a DigiQ or similar, but I am a liar. I bought the Primo with all of the bells and whistles, and I guess I have to admit the DigiQ is pretty nice. It performed flawlessly. I cooked a rack of St. Louis cut ribs at 275 degrees, 3 hours on smoke, 1 hour wrapped, and 30 minutes unwrapped. The temp never varied more than 5 degrees. The ribs were slightly overcooked, but delicious. I'll back down 30 minutes on the smoke next time. The Primo performed to my expectations and then some.

The wife made some killer potato salad and Cole slaw as sides for the BBQ.

I've cooked two racks of spare ribs on the Primo and both times they were tough as jerky 1/8" on top and juicy in the middle. They come out looking grand-but aren't. Butts, chickens, wings and all grilling have been excellent on the Primo though. Your ribs look beautiful.
I'm strictly using the Pit Barrel Cooker for ribs.

These didn't have a tough as jerky outside, although it was more chewy than the middle of the ribs. Maybe the wrapping helped a bit.

Thanks. As soon as we move to TX, we're going to either get a BWS or Pitmaker. They both look great, and as you say, pretty much set and forget.
