Kamado grill controller SMOBOT

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I grill steaks, fish & veggies and love what the results I get on this Kamada style grill…

Mine happens to be a Primo…

For the past 5 years I was using an electric style smoker and I wanted to use my Primo instead…but baby sitting the grill for a 12hr smoke was just not going to happen…

So about a year ago or so I started to look into a control of sorts that could keep constant temp inside grill, monitor meat temp and be able to check on this while I was away, lets say running to the store or while at work, or whatever…

I like simple and easy stuff that Works…so I went on a hunt..

Over the past year I had followed various forums on what others were using and really never go excited over what was offered…Some fell in love with what they had, while others had reservations.

Then by chance over on the Primo Grill site forums I stumbled across a thread about a fellow who had made a simple design controller that I thought really looked promising..

However he was just tinkering around with this and needed some time to work out the functionally.

Another year went by and no controller…however I was smoking meat in my electric burner but I still wanted to use my Primo…I was turning out some great steaks and seafood meals and really wanted to use this grill to smoke…

Around xmas time I told the wife to order me what I picked out from two different suppliers of controllers, yes two,.. to make what I wanted out of a system that would work for me…Then… WAIT…I was notified by email from the fellow who I registered with asking if I was still interested in a beta unit ….YIPPEE…I submitted my interest and low and behold I received my beta unit…

Then for the next several weeks in my neck of the woods…rain, rain, rain…

 

So at the end of this week Sunshine..Yahoo…

 

SMOBOT

The unit came boxed up well, instructions are easy to follow and the web based connection went with out a hitch.

Like I said earlier...K.I.S.S….Keep It Simple Stupid

SMOBOT gave me a sign on to access a forum so they have direct support to me & I can give feedback on this private forum… 

Now we have a long weekend so I am giving her a shot…

 

I dug through the freezer and lucky me I had a 12lb pork shoulder..

Started the thaw on Monday and it is now Saturday28th…got up early and set up the grill and SMOBOT and tossed on the pork.

I will post pictures and some comments as the smoke proceeds...

Pork came out at 195

The charcoal burnt make up a coffee can full of ashes..
