Phew! - that sounds much better. Yes it can be a pain when that happens. Allowing it to get too cool for a short period of time is much more preferable than allowing it to get way too hot Thumbs Up

 

That is why I first bought my data logger. It records the meat and smoking chamber temperature every 60 seconds and I can download it in real time to my PC if something unexpected happens. When you first do this you then realise just what effect taking the lid off the smoker actually has on the internal temperature.

Huh - it is a good thing that I can cancel out the background static on here. They just have no respect :biggrin:

 

Anyway - I know that you are interested, but to help keep the attention of the unwashed masses I will try to keep it brief.

 

I use ThermaData TCD http://thermometer.co.uk/data-loggers/1001-thermocouple-therma-data-logger.html. It works really well and produces great graphs.

 

Here is the post from when I first got it. http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/170160/new-toy-data-logger

 

Don't worry about Steve and Danny. They will both settle down when they get their new boxes of crayons.

That looks a cool but of kit.

I'm a bit of a gadget freak but I think I'll steer clear of that though, as it seems a little OTT for my use.

Excellent post Wade,  another bit of kit on the wish list,  I just need to be able to justify it,  but unfortunately I can't.

 

My latest toy is a new log splitter. 

 

Boys and their toys Eh

Hehe - I don't know what you mean. They are essential tools that we just cannot do without :biggrin:

 

At least that's what I tell Joyce. I think she believes me.

I love looking at the log splitters when I visit the local wood fairs. I have always wanted one of those Thumbs Up.
