Guru vie Stoker

Been thinking about a Guru for a while now. Tried get one cheap on E-Bay cheap a couple of times. Now comes this Stoker gadget.

Anyone care to sing the praises of either?

You gonna stick it on the ceramic? I don't know squat about either but I like the graph brian j does with the stoker in the "brisket did what?" thread.

The guru comes with the mount that replaces the lower slide vent on the egg and Primo.
4 hundred for the old one with wires, 5 hundred for the new wireless one SRP. Last two wired types sold on ebay for around $200, 10X more than the "comptroller" will allow

Santa never showed up Perhaps cause he knows the RE market is in the Sh###r and didn't want to get soiled.

But yes, I'd get in a hearbeat if the wardon would allow. The wardon's additional duties include being the CFO. That's what happens when you marry a redhead

Dats I used to think there wasnt a big need for one, then the sleep started to sound better, then Brian had to go and show that graph.....I dunno, that stoker is looking pretty slick. I saw you bid on the guru on ebay and figured that was a sign not to go for it

My 1st go around I went to 199. Figured I tell the Mrs it was another computer gadget. Then she read my emails ( word to the wise), on the 2nd go around I bid 20, in any case, I thought you had the winning bid

Dats, perhaps the innate salesman in me, but, do not get in to the "Price Tag Legit" syndrome so many shoppers fall in to...I would imagine that if you ASKED for a better price either retailer might give you a better price. You negotiate for a good deal on a car or a house....you can do the same thing for a cheeseburger or a Guru or a Stoker...

You just got to have the balls to ask! Most people don't...makes them feel all weird inside!!

It sounds more like he is afraid to ask his wife, not the seller! Grow a set and tell her you are buying one!

I was hoping to snag one for $20 on the auction. 5cents on the dollar. Don't think they're worth 2 bills much less the SRP.

Nick, think I'll go pop the top on a few beers and cruise e-bay for awhile.
