    I like this solution a lot and am going with it. Bought a couple pork bellies yesterday and started the 7 day cure. I will let you guys know how the bacon turns out as soon as it is done. Thank you all for your input. It is nice having so much support and experience behind me. I am going to...

    Tallbm, that is exactly how it should operate. I don't cook in the smoker so I generally start out at 125 degrees for one hour no smoke, 140 degrees for one hour with smoke, 155 degrees for 2 hours with smoke and then finish at 175 no smoke until IT reaches 145 for bacon or 160 for snack...

    Very interesting point, Jckdanls. The highest internal temp I every smoke to is 165 degrees and I would never set the house temp over 225 degrees. Max temp for the TSM is 250 degrees. Will the 25 degrees be enough to keep full power to the Auber?? It would certainly be much simpler to just hot...

    Hi, Steve. Confusing, isn't it. I am sorry if our discussion causes and mental problems. We probably should have issued a hazard warning at the beginning. And yes, any malfunction or over temp will make the TSM controller try to shut down the coil which is the power source for the auber...

    Yes, the temp probe is still hooked up and it gives me a readout on the display. I only use the smoker for smoking so I never smoke hotter than 225. Mostly 175. I have a Traeger grill if I want to make a pork but or other higher temp cooking/smoking. My intent with keeping the original...

    First of all, I am jealous of your sketching ability, this would be much easier if I could show you. The one change to your diagram would be to plug number 5 into number 3. And thank you very much for your effort! I think the part you missed is that the orriginal TSM controller is permanently...

    Yes, the assistance of the members has been fantastic! I am well on my way and I hope to have a positive report within the week. My Auber is scheduled to arrive by Thursday so I should know soon. I really like the TSM smoker. Most of my smoking has been done on a homemade stick burner and while...

    I understand what you are saying. Here is what I plan to do to make it safe. Let me know what you think. The existing TSM male plug will plug into the wall. This will energize everything except the heating coils. I am going to mount a new female receptacle into the TSM controller box and wire it...

    Good morning Tallbm. Thank you for your response. My existing controller is not malfunctioning, it is just not a PID and I want the additional controll and accuracy of the Auber. What Dave is trying to assist me with is to install the Auber into the control of the TSM and I think he has figured...

    Dead Smoker

    Dave, thanks for the input. I think it makes sense. I need to get into the unit and try to rewire and then I will find out if I do or don't understand. I am good on the power limits. The TSM Country smoker is rated at 1000 watts and the Auber is rated for 1400 watts. 40% safety margin should be...

    Thanks, Daveomak. I have read the online manual for the Auber and all that it says that pertains to me is that it is not approved for use on anything but the Bradley and I know Nepas wired one into his TSM smoker. I can find the high temp wires and hook them up to a separate cord, bypassing the...

    Nepas, Good morning. I just ordered an Auber WSD-1200-GPH controller for my TSM Country smoker and I am wondering if you have any advice on wiring it in to my smoker. I read that there are several different approaches that you can take by either adding a separate cord or reusing the original...

    Bearcarver, I have read so much about your BBBB that I bought a pork butt and I qm going to try it using your step by step post. One question; What is the CBP that you sprinkle on with the garlic powder and onion powder?

    New to electric smoker

    I just received my TSM Country smoker and I am planning to hang some beef sticks this week. I have a couple questions and would appreciate some advice. The smoker is 1000 watt and the heating element is tucked under the smoke diffuser. How close to the smoke diffuser can I hang the sticks...

    Nepas, Thank you for your responses. I just received my TSM Country Smoker and am looking forward to trying it out. I have heard a lot about PID controllers but I am not sure if I should buy one or not. TSM claims that their controller will hold within + - 4 degrees but I don't believe it...

    Hey, Nepas. I m purchasing a TSM Country and I have a few questions. I smoke primarily pork bellies and sausages and snack sticks. I am thinking I could probably hang 4 or 5 bellies. What is your opinion? Next question, can you hang a 25 pound batch of sausage or snack sticks in this model? Last...
