Hey guys, I just got into smoking with a smoker over the winter. I have read several ways to maintain heat in the fire box however I live on a lake and have issues with wind here and there. Once I think I have it down I cant get passed 175 in my smoking chamber. I just ordered this PID from Auber Instruments. Here are the details of the PID: 1 x Temperature Controller for Off-set Style & Large Smoker 20 CFM (SYL-1615SYS-20CFM) = $156.12 Probe Option TC-K3MM-C for 900 °F Like I said before I thought I had this firebox thing nailed then every so often I run into issues. I would really like to be more confident with my heat and this seems like the way to go. Once I install and test it out I will report back how well it did. Anyone else use a PID? I have installed mods alreeady and they are listed below in my signature.
