Brick Pit Temperature Controller
So I build a brick. The thread for it is on here somewhere. The fire/cooking chamber in about 89 gallons. I love it. Huge thermal mass so when is gets to temp it stays pretty well. I want to add an auto temp control device to it. My buddy has a UDS that he has an IQ110 on and he likes it.

My questions are is this powerful enough to run something that is 60% bigger?

Will these/any temp controller work when burning wood or do I need to go to charcoal when using these?

If not a IQ110 what would you recommend for a temp controller?

I know the IQ's only read pit temp. Right now I have a couple of Mavericks for pit & food temp. I've read that most people really like the IQ's for best bang for the buck. I'm not necessarily looking for the cheapest option but also don't need all the bells & Whistles.

Wow. Not a single response. I can't believe no one has $0.02 on this.

Maybe folks were looking for a pic. Let's assume it's this one.

I would think with the size, you might consider something with a bigger fan the IQ110, but I have never used one, so take that into consideration. I would look at the Guru setups for large stickburners.

Thanks Peeps!!! The center area is the hot smoker/Pit. It's about 89 gallons of chamber. Or about 12 cubic feet. The area on the right is for cold smoking and the area on the left is for grilling/fireplace.

I don't have an IQ110, I have a DigiQ. If you have a bigger pit the 25 cfm fan would be essential. I know some people with big offsets use them. To be safe you could go with a Stoker that has the ability to control up to 4 pits. I've never tried it but I would think you could hook up multiple 25 cfm fans on one pit. Let us know how it goes. Good luck!
