Auber or IQ110


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I am looking for some help when doing a long and slow overnight cook. By reading a few posts, it sounds like both the Auber PID and the Pitmaster IQ110 seem to be good units in the same price range. A lot of good comments for both units. What I would like to read now is the people who had bad experience or issues with one of these. I guess I just need to know their weaknesses to help me make a choice.

Tks a lot in advance!

My cyberq (BBQ guru product) holds a tighter temp than my auber did, but they both get the job done. I think the difference is that the cyberq varies the rate of the fan, whereas on the auber the fan is either full on or full off.

I have (and like very much) the Auber.

 

The only weakness I've found is the wall wart. It (and I've tried two) doesn't seem to like working below ~ 40F.

 

Auber CS was very good about sending replacement parts (the wall wart was actually the third replacement part they sent, a new controller and fan came first), but I ended up swapping the one they sent with a NetGear ethernet switch power supply. The Auber works fine indoors on the switch and the NetGear supply hasn't failed on the Auber controller even at temps below 0F.

 

I have no experience with the IQ110...

Do you know what the input voltage is? Is it 12Vdc?

I have the Pitmaster iQue 110. I don't use it a lot, but when I do it holds the pit temp on the nads. I have had it several years, and when I bought it, it was the only variable speed controller on the market. All the other controllers were either running on or would turn off. I liked the idea of a constant airflow. I haven't kept up much with controllers much the past few years, so I don't know if that is still true or not. I only use it if I am going to leave home for a while, or if it is extremely windy out. I find a controller unnecessary for the most part.

Yes. The Auber wall wart is rated 12v @ 1 Amp.
