    Default Two of my smokers

    I own a bradley 4 rack digital. I modded it with the two element mod. Added a small fan on the back wall to help even temps out for sausage making. It works OK for a small smoker. I also was able to rescue a lab oven from work.



    15.5 x 18.5 x 27 in.
    4.5 cu. ft.
    65 to 210C
    Stainless-steel interior and rugged steel cabinet offer easy cleaning and durability; resist corrosion
    Insulation (2 in. thick [5.1cm]) provides efficient heat retention and precise temperature uniformities
    Top vent for optimal venting

    I have done many a smoke in both of these. Both are run by Auber PIDS

    This plug-and-play PID temperature controller is for controlling the temperature of the electric smokers, such as Smokin-it, Smokin Tex, Masterbuilt Smoker. It uses a PID algorithm to automatically adjust power to the heater to compensate disturbances from sun light and wind. It can hold the smoking temperature within one degree precision.

    This controller has two sensor probes, 6 programmable steps, and an AC output that is synchronized with program step(s). Users can use the first probe to control the temperature of smoker cabinet. The second pointed probe can be inserted into the food to moniitor internal temperature. The ending criteria of each step can be determined by either preset time, or preset internal food temperature. For cooking small sized foods or smoking the surface of the food, users can use the preset time as a reference point to finish the step. Using the internal temperature as the reference point is important for cooking large size food because it is difficult to know how much time is needed. For example: You can program the temperature to start at 120 F for 1.5 hour of smoking, rise to 132 F for 2.5 hours and finish at 190 F until the internal temperature reaches 170 F. Then, the controller can either turn on a buzzer to let you know the food is ready, or drop the temperature to a lower set point to keep the food warm until you are ready to serve it. This will save you time waiting by the smoker to change the settings manually when each step is finished. The synchronized AC output can be used to turn on and off the smoker generator with the program step(s). For example, you can program the smoker to dry the sausage at 140F until the internal temperature reaches 100F (step 1), turn on a smoker generator for 2 hours at 150F (step 2), then, turn off the generator to continue the next step. Up to two program steps can by synchronized with the AC output.



    In this photo you will see my cold smoke adapter. Its a old micro wave with the bradley smoke generator attached.


    Here is a pic of them both.


    And this is why the big one is called Miss Piggy

    Looks like way more than I would want to attempt.

    Awesome setup! Looks like you're into the technical side of controlling temps and a gadget guy too. Thanks for posting your setup .. love it.
