Interesting idea. I'm a bit of a tinkerer myself, have to keep an eye out for something that might work.

Looks like a Milwaukee heat gun with the coils removed. Pretty impressive.

Depending on the controller possibly a sold state relay, fuse holder, temp sensor. I have a wiring diagram for some control box's we made up. It has alarm circuits and beacon lights. All unneeded for simple control. It is a PDF so I need to send it to a e-mail. But believe me unless you get this stuff off ebay or salvage a Digi Q price looks fantastic.

I'm game to give it a try via salvage.

I would try and keep it basic though ie minus the lights and alarm. lol

Bringing this back from the dead – found some new DYI controller info: HERE

Interestingly, the geek-guru doc in the link is not from a BBQ book, but is a chapter from a book called Geek House: 10 Hardware Hacking Projects for Around Home Just the thing for heathkit & soldering iron types...

My only question is... why would you need one on a UDS?

Everytime I think of doing something like this, I fire up the beast and run it for a 12 or 15 hour cook and ask myself that same question.
