Can I get a model 4 in analog?

Curious why the analog models stop at #3.

Would love a model 4 or 5 in analog.

I once inquired about an analog 4.  No go. But who knows?  Send a note to Steve! Maybe a limited run. Good luck and welcome to the forum!  As for why the analog stopped at the 3, I guess it models 3 and below sell more and because of limited budgets, not all can afford digital and maybe some folks just don't like digital gadgets.  Just a guess.

Thanks. The way I look at it, the digital stuff is something that inevitably ends up malfunctioning or going bad and needing to be replaced. One more thing to worry about. Every digital appliance or gadget I have ever owned ended up having problems within a year or two. I want something that will go on and on for many years. Longevity is key for me. I guess if these smokers are built over in China, they can't just whip up an analog #4 by request. Oh well.
