1) Depends on the package you select. Anywhere from $200 to $273 according to this page but if you add additional blowers, it will be more.

2) Not very but you can place the controller in a zip lock bag to protect it ~ Same with remote thermometers.

3) 175° to 400°F but you can cheat to get lower temps for cold smoking.

Here is a link to their manual and their website is here.

Does anyone know if the BBQ Guru is legal to use in KCBS competitions.
It would seem to me that it would be but I just want to double check.

Do you have to have one of the probes inserted into the meat for this to work? I am purchasing a mobile smoker that uses a rotisserie system which would obviously prevent a probe being inserted into the meat.

No. Many people use the Pit Minder E-Temp or the Pit Boss 25 for their pits and they only control the pit's temperature. The Competitor can be used that way too ~ Just leave the meat probe out and don't set the meat set point on the controller.

How long does it take these guys to process an order?

I ordered from these guys on Monday and the status is still listed as pending. Hey Guys, time to turn up the temp on the order processing!
