Auber pid controller
« on: December 26, 2019, 05:12:50 PM »
Hey guys, total rookie here. I have recently purchased the original Bradley smoker and have only used it once. I decided to buy the Auber pid and have received it but have not set it up yet. I’m somewhat clear on how it works but I’m wondering where I set the temperature on the Bradley temperature control. I have read the directions for the Auber but it does not mention anything about it. The OBS only has the high, medium, low option. Do I just set it on high and let the PID do the work or does it even matter where I set the temperature. May be a dumb question, but any input would be much appreciated. Thanks guys.

Doesn't matter where you set it.  It is no longer in the circuit to control the heating element.  The PID does all the controlling.   8)
