No, I was referring to the "Golden-Dog."

My mistake, yes that is his new model, I believe he still has 1 unit available for $58USD(promo price) but you are expected to write a review.

Do I understand correctly that the fan speed is variable up to 50 cfm?
What type smoker will this fit without too much trouble or, more specifically, a WSM and/or a Backwoods Competitor? Thanks!

No manual? The controls (As well as device specific terminology), as shown in above comments, are hardly intuitive. Seems odd that a user guide would not be included.

Yes but you would need to purchase the 50CFM package, the one pictured in my original post is the 10CFM package and below is the 50CFM model:



The upgrade I believe is +10USD. Wang can also make custom adapters to your liking if you message him the details, I believe he has done so already for others on the board. If you follow this link you will see the standard adapters that he carries: http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...d.php?t=143570

I thought so as well initially but later learned that Wang actually makes all of this stuff himself. To put it in another light, we are talking directly with the manufacturer. I am not certain if he has instructions in Chinese but as you can see in his replies English is not his first language and writing a manual himself would probably be counter productive.

Which tells me the consumer is helplessly lost without direct contact with the maker. He could easily make one translation (Even an imperfect one) and simply xerox it for each unit built. Heck. He could provide a PDF link on the interwebs.

If you want retail packaging and documentation then I would suggest going with the many number of US based companies, the trade off is the higher price tag. I actually paid less for this controller than I did for my Maverick thermometer.

By nature, I like tinkering with things so not having a manual wasnt an issue for me. I read enough in the other threads to know what I was getting into before I dove in.

I understand that Wang doesnt have a marketing department or a sales staff or anything of the likes so expecting North American style customer service or anything close it is probably not going to happen.

The intention of my thread to be as neutral as possible and provide useful information for those who were interested, nothing more nothing less.

Yep, understood. And I am interested, or more intrigued actually, in his several products so far. They have a certain raw beauty to them and seem to work well from accounts I've read too. Still though, for those who don't like to tinker, it could be an issue and as such, I thought it merited a mention.

I am a tinkerer too and I am intrigued by this. The cost to my door of this system (with the promo price) shipped to my door is about a third the cost of the Auber System and at least half that of the IQ.

I'm willing it invest some time into it.

Just have to break out my old calculus book. Just kidding.

I think the presets that he keeps mentioning in Thegizzard's review would be a good point to start if you dont want to dust off that calc book.

1. P=0030 I=0240 D=0060 (This is what is on the Dog as a default)

2. P=0030 I=0000 D=0000
3. P=0060 I=0000 D=0000
4. P=0010 I=0000 D=0000
5. P=0015 I=0000 D=0000
6. P=0007 I=0000 D=0000

*The larger the P, the SLOWER the temperature will rise, when I & D are 0000.
*The smaller the P, the FASTER the temperature will rise, when I & D are 0000.

Setting I & D to 0000 while playing around with P is all you really need to do to fine tune it if I am understanding him correctly.

For those of you that understand these graphs here you go:

Sorry men and women too?
I run one man business. All is done by myself.
I do not have marketing department, or I am doing marketing too.
I will try to translate manual of DOG in one or two days.
As DOG is a degraded( I am suggested not using word of degrade) model of WOLF, indeed you can use manual of WOLF. www.allchinas.com/probe/manual.htm

For your information. DOG has ONE probe
WOLF has TWO probes.One for pit, the other for meat.Highlight is that MEAT probe controls fire also. I am sure that all other competitors use meat probe for MONITORING only, NOT for CONTROLLING

Well it looks like I will be doing my trial run tomorrow instead of the weekend(its raining). I have a 10lbs butt that I am defrosting now.

- I plan to do it Hot n Fast @ 325F. I will be rubbing(1/3c salt, 1/3c pepper, 1/3c paprika and a few teaspoons of other things)using mustard as my adhesive with no injection (trying to keep it KISS).
- I plan to put it in ‘naked’ until 160F internal temp and then place it in a tray covered in foil until 200F internal temp or until probe tender.
- When it reaches 200F or probe tender I will wrap it in foil then a towel and then let it rest in a cooler for 1 hour.
- After the hour I will return the butt to the tray with the drippings(fat skimmed out) and pull the meat, if timing allows I will throw it back on so the meat can cook in its own juice.
