Hi All, I am looking to put together a PID for a smoker i want to build, and need some advice as to whether this will work for me. Here is the link to the how to guide i found: http://www.susanminor.org/forums/showthread.php?t=315 My question is will a 25 Amp relay handle the 1500 watt brinkman drop in element?? I have read that if you try to run too much juice through these relays, they can heat up and fail. I am not an electronics guy at all, but really have no fear when it comes to DIY projects. However, I don't want to do anything that is going to burn down my house,and would like to make sure i have the right pieces to do this from someone in the know. Would a 40 amp relay be better for running this instrument?? Initially, i was going to just buy one of the plug and plays from auber, but then i saw that the smoker controller would only go up to 1440 watts, which i assume is no good for a 1500 watt element, and I don't really want to spend an extra 40 bucks on the next one up the chain when i can build the same thing with less that 100 bucks in parts. Any help you could give would be much appreciated. Thanks guys.
