Ditto on dakotasmoke. I have never regretted the cost of my SM066 for one second. It can do 6 racks of ribs without even using the lowest rack, which I think is too close to the heat. I have used it for ribs at an outside temp of 25 degrees with wind - no problem, and I haven't had any display problems on my unit. I bought in 2013, if that has any usefulness. I do try to keep it from getting wet from rain, at least the control unit, but otherwise I am very happy with it. Brisket, pastrami, ribs (pork loin backs and beef short ribs), pork butt, lots and lots of salmon every summer, and chicken wings and turkey thighs. All is good and no worries about the smoker behavior at all. Just solid "set it and forget it." I should say that it lives in a non-heated garage when not in use.
