    PID controllers.. geeky question

    I like "rocket surgery" and the science behind things. Especially controls! Lol

    PID controllers.. geeky question

    So I was just reading the manual on that auber, it seems they do some of the math for you. Actually the whole aspect seems different than what I normally deal with. It seems somewhat simplified however I don't know that I could apply my same tuning aspect to it. It doesn't say if P calculates...

    Yeah, the 3-2-1 generally makes the ribs too tender where they litterally fall off the bone. 2-2-1 allows you to have a little pull and still get a clean bone. Unwrapped the entire time I would assume would have a similar texture but more bark. I haven't ventured into that yet but I will try...

    PID controllers.. geeky question

    We have an auto tune for our software but it always pushes wacky PID values that sometimes kinda work. I will have to grab some cutsheets on these and check them out. Thanks

    PID controllers.. geeky question

    So does it give you the ability to actually change the PID numbers separately and the interval? And that makes sense for D as I was always taught it was correction for "future". Im still curious if it's actually needed as I controls hot water valves and gas heating valves strictly with PI...

    PID controllers.. geeky question

    Does anyone know the specifics of how they work programming wise? I do building automation for a living and part of my job entails tuning PID loops. In HVAC though we do not use direvitive and I was curious if they use it in BBQ. Does anyone ever have issues with them swinging?

    I am! Lol my smoker is currently full. 1 rack for brisket, 1 rack for baked beans(2 half pans) 2 racks for pork belly chunks. I really need to research a new vertical smoker.

    Yeah I figured with the mustard. So that's why I dried it under a fan first. Not sure if that helped. If you do the pellicle route I wonder if you need the binder because of the stickiness of the meat?

    Brisky and Pork Belly Burnt Ends project

    Ok so I did the counter yesterday with a fan on it until it got sticky. After I rubbed it up and put in the fridge uncovered. Until this morning, so hopefully that works. I read that with the dry environment with the fridge but I couldn't find if you do that then add the rub in the morning or...
