Happy New Years all, been a while!
Hunting for best electric temp controller for keg 4000, but not interested in drilling or permanent mods.
I have decent/good success with TTT but not reliable or confident for overnights with it. Last time I did an overnight my maverick woke me up 5 times because temp was too low, almost lost my fire.
Lots of you seem to use them so what are your opinions!

Nothing to compare it against as I have used nothing else, but I have a Pitmaster IQ120 and love it.  Other than 1 probe that failed after about 2 years of use, never had any other issue.  Easy to use and very accurate as long as you bring it up to temp slowly.  I purchased a couple new probes and also sealed the probe-to-cable area with food safe silicon based on another member's recommendation here.  Moisure may be able to slowly get in there.

I also have a TTT, but it has never worked that well for me either so I don't trust it.  In warm weather it works well, but in cooler weather I get lots of moisture condensation and it ends up sealing the lid closed when doing low/slows.

I built a heatermeter and use it for any long indirect cook.

With regards to the pit master, it seems some people have had major issues with the adapter? What about you small?

Long time no talk!

I'll sell you my BBQ Guru CyberQ if you like .... PM me if interested. Used Once. Works great. Too much fuss for me, I do fine without it.

I've had one probe fail...I think at probably around 25-30 uses.  Other than that, operation has been flawless over a couple years now.  I used to hang the probe from the top, hanging it through the vent, but someone else mentioned the probes may eventually absorb the liquid as they are not sealed as good as they could be.  I ordered a couple replacements and used red silicon to seal the area near the probe/cable joint.  I also make sure the probe is set up so any moisture runs away from the probe (not sure that makes any real difference or not).  So far, no other issue.
