I'm sure you will love it. Stokers really take the pain out of cooking.

I built my own. Not a complicated affair, but my the difference it makes. I had it for my UDS and the temp never varied by more than about 5C, if that.

Sounds good. As I mentioned previously my WSM is fitted with Nomex Gaskets so, once the PartyQ is installed I hope to see very stable temps. Looking forward to trying to cook Short Ribs (had them at Bodeans on Saturday evening and loved them) :)

Where did you get your nomex gaskets from?

You should get good stability with that fitted.

Short ribs are a doddle, so fatty and marbled you can't really go wrong.

Let us know how they go.

Ordered the gasket via eb@y and had two reels shipped over from the US. Have also used the same gasket around the rim of the lid on my Mastertouch. Since installing I see a lot less smoke escaping where each of the sections connect and they certainly help stop air leaking in.

It's the self-adhesive type (before choosing I viewed a couple of online videos of installing the type that comes with a tube of glue, and opted for the less-messy approach).

Had an update email: Guru should arrive today. Was planning on roasting a leg of lamb on the kettle on Saturday but I might have to switch the menu to Baby-backs on the WSM so I can try out my new toy :)

Very tempted by a PartyQ for my WSM as well, but also wondering at what point. GMG Davy Crockett starts to make more sense? I might get one and I guess I can also sell it on if I upgrade in future. Look forward to hearing how you get on.

Update. have finally found time to use the Party Q. I really like it.

Temp swings over/under target were higher than people have described but i was only running a very small starting fire and limited unlit fuel (configured as a thick snake) because it was a ribs cook. I suspect the swings will be less pronounced with a bigger, more stable, fire as would be the case with my longer cooks.

Love the ease of it, looking forward to the next time I have a reason to throw a packer on :)
