For years BBQ Guru® has been the first name in automatic temperature control for smokers, dominating the market with controllers that maintain a consistent temperature for hours. As with all great products, however, other brands have adopted the technology and pushed it forward. Perhaps the most notable of those brands is Flame Boss. With a ground-breaking variable speed fan and simple out-of-the-box usability, Flame Boss has become a legitimate alternative to BBQ Guru, spurring discussion about how the two compare. In fact, of all the questions we receive, it’s perhaps the most frequently asked.
