The highlights are
A:programmable. You can preset different temperatures for your smoker
B:PID output. It will control fan running slower or faster according to pit temperature tendency. result is very stable temperature. It is much better than a relay which simply turns on or off the fan. The later makes temperature fluctuation much higher.
C:Meat temperature driven pit fire. When meat temperature reaches to set point, the meat probe will take over the control of fire. In turn you are controlling doness of meat directly. I do not find any one else has this feature.
Price to you US$128, mail cost US$20. It includes controller, fan, and mounting flange. As a return, you need to write a report in the bbq-brethren.
