Monolith Pro 2.0 BBQ Guru vs Kamado Joe II

Hi guys,

 

I couldn't find any information on this using the forum search, so I wanted to open this question.

 

I've been reading about the Monolith Pro 2.0 with some real interest. It seems like they updated a few of the little issues from the 1.0 - New hinge, new gasket, new damper.

 

The BBQ Guru edition also has temperature monitoring and a blower that can seemingly automate the temperature regulation of the grill. There £100 difference between the Classic and the BBQ Guru, which also comes with a cart. This upgrade seems a bit of a no-brainer to me.

 

What I'm hoping to find out is how much the updates for the 2.0 compare to the already brilliant Kamado Joe? From other posts here, I think previously it just came down to personal choice. Do the updates in the 2.0 tip the balance in favour of the Monolith?

Has anyone had any experience with the BBQ Guru edition or a similar system on a different grill? Is just a gimmick or does it really add value?

I just bought a monolith classic guru kamodo and it should be here in a couple weeks. I researched and was comparing the KJ and monolith and ended up going with it for some of the very reasons you mentioned. I will let you know how it goes.
