BBQ GURU PODCAST...

Thanks to Shotgun Fred for doing the podcast with me last night. It was truly a stuggle for us to get togehter yesterday to do it! Even during the interview, his phone cratered 9 minutes in and we had to start over!!

However, we persisted through it all and produced a really good show! He had some great information and some cool anticdotes! I also liked it when he told me his opinion on those who thought that using the GURU didn't constitute making BBQ! It was great!

Thanks again Fred! I had a great time!

Yes, the anti Guru himself is considering getting one. At least if I get one for LuLu I won't be buying an attachment that costs more than the pit, as would be the case with the WSM. I haven't 100% made up my mind yet. I'd like to be able to do overnighters on LuLu, and without a Guru that is impossible without a Guru unless there is something I'm missing or doing wrong. So yeah, I'm seriously considering a Guru. So if and when I get one, I'll eat crow for being so anti Guru. Hey, maybe I was wrong........

I was wrong one time, but I can't remember when it was.

I too enjoyed the podcast. And I laughed at his comments about purist Qers. But I really didn't need to hear it again from Greg! :rant: I still have trouble visualizing how they work. I didn't hear him ever mention $$ so the must be expensive also. I heard Adrian put one on his Gator. I'd like to hear more from him.

Pretty easy, when the unit monitors that your pit temp is dropping below your set temp, it turns the fan on to reinvigorate the coals and brings your temp back up to the temp you originally set it at, i.e. you set the pit temp at 235, when the Guru detects it dropping below that temp it turns the fan on and more air leads to higher temps and guess what, your temp goes back up and the guru shuts the fan off. How's that.

Fantastic explanation Bruce!

I too would like to hear more from Adrian. How much wood you put in the pit in the beginning and how much you light first would be my first question. #2 would be do you have to add any additional logs during the cook?
