You said it brother.
Although pit temp control on a WSM is great, it's good to have someone (something) watching your back.

After thinking about getting a GURU, I decided not to...it just isn't a need for overnight cooks! Now, if you are going to start smoking and then leave the house for hours on end then I can see where it might come in handy, but, if you aren't going anywhere but to bed then I don't see the need. The WSM holds temps really well and for a long period of time! JMO!

I wouldn't tell someone new to BBQn to go get one. That is a lot of money to spend and maybe find out you don't like doing this anyway. Hope you do, but you may not.
Learn the art of BBQ before finding shortcuts.

Cortez, I'll go along with the advice you've gotten here. Learn to control your temps the old fashioned way first. It helps you understand what's going on. After that I've personally found the Guru an invaluable tool to help me balance queing with the other things that take up my time.
