Again I prefer a battery. Battery is much safer than 110V AC.
Just image your smoker is at your backyard without cover. Rain suddenly comes,
110V AC must be dangerous. 12VDC will create no risk, at worst you destroy your battery.
In a few weeks we will develop a controller for pellet smoker, which must use 110VAC power. You can use it to control a charcoal smoker too by using 110VAC fan. We have a very nice 110VAC fan.
Thanks for the info. But I've never really had any electric/electronic device that I preferred DC over AC, unless AC just wasn't available. Regarding your comment about rain, I don't have to worry about that because "it never rains in southern California" (just kidding). Good luck and I hope you sell a million of your controllers. I'll consider your product the next time I need one.
