    Hi Shane' I built a electric smoker with a PID. I used a relay to power element.

  3. Ok thank you I was just going to buy a plug and play dual prope pid but my heating element has a switch problem so It was wandering if I can do away with the switch beings it will be plugged in to my pid so basically the element will be wide open and I should be abel to control with pid without burning any thing down rite
