Default The Homebrewed Heatermeter in action

Hey, I thought I would post a my first run with my Heatermeter with the Servo attachment.

If you are not familiar with the HM, its a Raspberry Pi with an attached board that you make yourself for a lot cheaper then what you can buy premade. You can use Maverick probes or Thermowork probes. Cases are 3d printed and also the servo case. Byran has put a lot of work into designing the HM and now anybody can make one without much trouble.

Today, im going to try those dam Bacon Onion rings on some Hamburgers

here is a pic of the set up on my UDS

That's the servo in the 3d printed PLA attached to a fairly big blower lol

And a live feed from the Heatermeter


Today is learning day to adjust the settings to get a stable temp
Raspberry PI Heatermeter homemade temp controller, 2 UDS.
New Version 4.2 Heatermeter with K thermocouple support Available
PM me, if you would like a heatermeter pre-made, everything included, heatermeter, case, blower, SD card programmed, servo and case, no soldering needed ready for your network and BBQ.

Looking good!

Is that the rotodamper servo?

I built a 4.0 a couple weeks ago and enjoy cooking with it.
