Very interested in this thread, I am looking at adding this to a 3'x3'x6' smoker so the fan may need to be larger than what will be given, but I think I can speak for all of us by saying we appreciate you putting this together and can't wait to see the results!

Just started one of the pid controllers tonight kinda just test and tune. Works great it cycles on and off when trying to come up to temp when gets to temp it cycles off (obviously) it kicks on it falls less then 5 degrease of desired temp

Parts List! Laughing


Can't wait to see more details looks pretty straight forward and since I'm considering building a new insulated vertical smoker the timing is ideal.
