That all looks fantastic!
Sorry to hear you burned a PID, but at least you know you have a great smoker there.

Suyi said "No Problem, It under warranty" ;D

hal, even with the one element, it is holding like a dream. Just bumped it to 235*

That’s some sweet looking meat you got there Sonny! You’re going to have a bunch of happy folks chowing down! And I say the PID failed within its useable specifications, just a bad component! And we all know the Auber CS is right up there with Bradley’s!

I know Suyi will take care of it, He's a great guy and has a great product.

Just kinda sorry it happened.

mike, the fan did it's job great.

I didn't have time to install a variable switch in it so I just raised it

1/4" or so and off set it. No smoke in the smoke gen.

This has been Fun so far. Wish I would have started in the earlier part of the day

to get the sausage and boudain and ribs done before bedtime and then let

the butts and briskets ride the nite. Butt, I just couldn't wait any longer.

Food looks fantastic Sonny!

You should build your own controller for this unit. It really isn't that hard and I would be more than willing to help you out with how to do it.

Mike, after all the stupid questions I ask you and you think I can build a PID?

I appreciate your sense of Humor! ;D

You can do it Sonny!  ;)

I see some things I don't like.

I see some things I can live with.

This has been fun, but now it's gonna get serious.

I have started a new list! ;D

The smoker did a good job, No a great job!

I had to use two hands to lift them off the rack.



4 butts



plus 4 butts



equals this.



A Butt Load of Butts!
