Stop thinking. Start smoking.
I just spent $12 K on this Honda Accord! Why can't it tow my boat?!?

  Auber has a model available that has a built in 1200 watt relay so it does not need the SSR making wiring simpler.

I believe that one has mechanical relays that have been known to stick.  I prefer the SSR.

I think both models are same just a little bit difference in functioning but same quality output.

Just curious if you know the model number with the built in 1200 watt SSR relay? I'm also a newbie. Waiting for my new Bradley original 4 rack smoker. I plan to either Mod it similar to Tedebears or just buy the plug and play. Will decide once I see how it will work with the new type temp controller. Thanks

Wow, old thread.  Anyway, the Auber PID controller with the built-in SSR looks like it can only handle a maximum of 2 amps, according to the description.  That isn't enough to handle even the stock 500W element, much less a dual element mod.

Here's a link to their PID controllers:  Auber Instruments PID Controllers
