May I draw on the experience here again. I want to use a control on my UDS-30. Admittedly it is pretty stable, but it seems to like tiny adjustments occasionally, hard to have complete trust in overnight butt cooks. Additionally since I've had my Traeger rescue I'm kinda spoiled to the convenience it provides. But the pellet system hasn't satisfied me with enough smoke taste.
Ive been considering buying a PID and building a unit. Also considered the IQ110, and the Auber Instruments plug and play system meant for the Kamado styles and BGEs. A requirement is the unit must be reasonably easy to move between barrels and work on a UDDS-55 that I haven't built yet.
What are your thoughts? If cost wasn't an issue what would be the top choice for this application? Just in case I get some lucky funds.
Another question on building a system is, how is the air supply shut off when the fan isn't running. My 30 would draft enough air through a stopped fan to hit 400 I believe. Can the PID be used to close a valve when the fan is off and open when needed?
Thanks .. Matt
