Looking for something like the partyq or iq110. Simple, battery option, connects to a 2" ball valve. I have a Heater Meter with a RotoDamper but there's a lot of wires going everywhere. It just looked ridiculous hanging out of the cooker when I used it on my cabinet. Are those the only 2 options? Don't really need it as it runs fine without it so not interested in spending more $$$ than necessary. Is one better than the other? Will either fit a 2" ball valve without an adapter?

Thanks in advance for your wisdom.

You for Sure have found a PartyQ Disciple here Paul. You set that rig on 275*, When you wake in the morning it will not be 274 or 276. It works!
On edit, you can purchase various adapters for your type of rig. Mine is for the WSM.

I use an IQ120 with my Assassin - easy to use and reliable.

i had an iq120

it has power cord, pit temp, food temp, and rubber hose

i now have a heater meter
it has power cord, pit temp,3x food temp, and ethernet cord

not that different imo

you can also eliminate the power cord from the heater meter by using a battery(lipo or lifepo4)

I think there's another cable going to the fan. The fan will no longer stay attached to the RD and the servo is under powered to turn the fan anyway. It sticks out like a foot or more and looks ugly. I'd like an all in one unit even though the HM has a ton more features.

I use the Rd25(bigger rotordamper). It has a 3d printed threaded piece and from that I have a 1 to 2 inch pipe adapter. Works great on my double pan Gravity Feed.

Hmm I use a microdampers and the Ethernet cable carries power to both the damper and fan.

The iq120 was very nice but you won't have wifi
