I ordered Auber temperature controller and a hot plate for my summer project and as soon as it comes I will try it out in MES40. During smokes I am always puzzled by temperature spikes and falls. I want to see if Auber controller can eliminate it. Also good feature to try is programming your cooking time. So no need to wake up to adjust temperature. If it works the way they advertise it I am planning to remove heating element housing with loader from MES. I use AMNPS as smoke source. Forgot to add. Highest temperature I ever need is 180F.
