I have two other temperature control systems. One is battery powered and the other is AC powered. I actually prefer the simplicity of the battery powered unit since I don't have to run a power cord to my grill. I use some decent quality rechargeable AA batteries in it and it works fine. I have run this one for probably close to 30 hours over two or three separate cooks before the batteries got low enough that I thought I needed to change them. Just in case, I always have some Duracells on hand...
I've stopped using food probes during cook. Over time I got to figure about hiw long it takes to cook something. I bought all these probes for my Stoker, and never use them. All I care about is the rock solid pit temp.

Most of the time you'll check with a Thermapen to see how things are coming along. Food probes are great for some of us perfectionist that simply like to track everything. This looks like a great option for people that are new to smoking or used to working with Gas grills. That's appears to be the target of the BBQ Wizard. The waterproof feature is a real nice touch. This definitely an issue that has been ignored by the other temp Controler manufactures.
