  • Also, you may find it interesting for future builds to look at the heating controllers for holding cabinets, which consist of two heating elements–– one for general heating, and one to heat a stainless steel water bath for moisture control. They also incorporate a blower fan over the main heating element, with the air then channelled to a back "spine" for even temperature dispersion. Best
    Hi Dave,

    I saw your great electric smoker build! Could you explain what steps you went through (to an electrical layman) for the installation of the heating element with coupler and controller? That would be a big help!!

    Big fan of your work!

    Thanks Theo. The controller is a Auberins PID. I just followed the wiring diagram that came with it. The heating element is just a kitchen stove baking element. This is my first smoker I ever built, so I'm not sure I know what I'm doing. Lol.

    Thanks Dave–– ha, I've been too nervous to set up the heating elements and wiring for mine, but yours looks great! Gives me some confidence. Thanks again

    I'll try to explain the basic wiring. The PID gets house voltage. The voltage passes Thu the pid to a solid state relay (ssr). The relay actually puts power to the element. But only when the pid tells it to. That depends on the temperature you have the pid set to.

    Also I used high temperature wires for the wire that go to the heating element. Got them from a junk kitchen stove. If you go to www.auberins and look thru their website you can see different wiring diagrams. That's what I did and just tweaked it a bit for my needs.
    Hope this helps you.
