so essentially positive to positive and negative to negative?

has this given you any problems?  i had asked about this one time on the forum and someone thought against the idea.

seems like the simple solution.  i run my smoker with a pid so i can't really see why there would be an issue running 1000w.

thanks for your post.

For the record,
The bradley is an A/C system so there is no "Positive to Positive" etc.
It is good to keep the hot and neutral wires correct, but the element is not polarized so it doesn't matter how you hook it up, so long as you do it in a parallel fashion, rather than series.

How often does the inline fuse fail?
Is it safe to assume that if the thermistor failed, the smoker wouldn't work?

I'm not sure how often the in-line fuse fails. If the thermistor fails the unit should shut down the heating element and generator, and display an "E-1" error.
