So..do you have any left at $58 for me to try? - I'd give it a go at that price. I'm looking at yours or an Auber instruments set up. I think a 10cfm fan would work.

How does your controller work in cold weather? Any problem in colder temperatures? This appears to be bit of an issue for other systems.

I certainly do not mind reviewing the product. Let me know if there are any left at the promotional price.

Winter temperatures regularly fall to -5 to -10C (Dec-March). I'd like to barbeque during these months, particularly during the holidays. I've read that the Auber system has had trouble in colder climates, although I'm not sure if this has not been corrected.

I've been able to use my old cheapo smoker for many years during the winter, but I would like to try a more automated system. I've picked up a Char-Griller knock off (side firebox)and would like to use it as a test bed. It will be quite an experiment for me, but as an avid all grain larger scale homebrewer, I'm used to adaptation and experimentation.

Sorry to be repetitive, but are there any $58 systems left? Just wondering as this would be a factor in the system I decide to buy and try.

Thanks

I will take a unit. How do I complete the transaction? I have Paypal.

I do not mind documenting my experience with it. Looks like I will need adapter "C"

Please send me payment/shipping details

Thanks

Done. I'll look forward to trying your system. I will also look at your controls for homebrewing.

Thanks

Please let me know when it ships.

I will have questions as well regarding setup of the PID. I think I have a basic understanding of the math behind the process control. Had to break out the old calculus book to get an understanding of the relationship between P, I and D.

Thanks

No, you do not need to make any calculation.
Just try different combinations of P,I,D
Try P=1,5,10,20,50 when I=0,D=0
Try fixed P, I=1,5,10,20,50,100 when D=0
Try fixed P,I and set D=1,5,10,20,50,100

I was just interested to see what each equation actually does to control the process. Interesting stuff, reaching back to my university days.

So..did it ship yet?

thanks

Just tried it for about 20 min at 9F or about -13C and it seemed to be O.K., unlike the Auber which was useless below freezing

In Beijing we are having warmer weather and I expect it to be 0C in one week.
Usually the coldest in Beijing is -10C.

How many of you do BBQ in winter time.
