Rick, this will do it. Just connect the leads to the jumper box leads and plug the other end into your Guru.

Those smaller ones should work fine. I read some threads on TVWBB and they were talking about how the packs last through a comp. with no problems at all.

Mike, it's for running your Guru when you aren't near an electrical outlet.

yea - like, what's a guru? You mean you leave your pit? Alone? All by himself? Haven't you ever heard of the BPSAA? That's the Barbeque Pit and Smoker Abandonment Act? There's the possibility of heavy fines and confiscation of your pit.

Don't see how the Guru works, and not sure if I'd trust it. How's it gonna put more wood on for you. How's it gonna turn down the heat, without moving the dampers? Besides it takes all the fun out of Qin'! Might as well hire someone else to cook for you too.

Now that would take all the fun out of it!

Bryan how long can the Guru run off of that power pack? Will it run 110V or is it 12V.

I wasn't sure if what Bryan had was the one Bob was referring to. I think there was a pic of another one too. $32, is a steal for something like that!!
