    Best place to get replacement thermostat for a Smokin' Tex 1400 at a good price?

    Thanks much, you two have been a lot of help! Do you like to buy from a particular seller on AliExpress? You linked to one earlier in this thread, but then you didn't think it was quite the right product.

    Thanks for the great tips and helpful photos! I appreciate any help I can get. :) So do you exclusively use the REX C-100 PIDs? Where do you prefer to order them from? Are they basically the same quality whether you order them off AliExpress vs. Amazon?

    Are the conduit boxes the same as what they sell with the PID kits? Here's one from Amazon. I wonder if a place like Menard's would have something like that?

    Thanks for the offers to sell a case or a build, JC. For now, I think I'll skip that since I want to learn to build them myself. But like you, I'm in the north country (Minnesota), so the very cold temps could be a problem in the winter. If you have time and wouldn't mind sharing more info on...

    Been watching more videos on this PID, and reading more forum threads on it and how people set it up. One question: What kind of case do you put these PID components into to keep them somewhat protected from the weather when you use them on your smoker? Some use a case that comes with an overall...

    Thanks for the clarification. So is this the setup I want to find, as seen in this video? Is that an SSR output?

    Excellent, will check into it! Haven't done my own wiring in electronics before, but have done home wiring and things. So should be able to figure it out. Didn't realize you could get a PID so inexpensively! Thanks for the suggestion.

    Thanks very much for the suggestion to upgrade to a PID, and explaining it so well! You are very convincing and have some good points. I'll check the other threads here on modding the smoker with a PID, and give it some serious thought. I assume they would also list the best place online to buy...

    Thanks for the reply. Anyone know what the least expensive PID would cost that would work on the Smokin' Tex 1400, and would that be a big upgrade over replacing the standard thermostat?

    I have a Smokin Tex 1400 that is quite old, and the thermostat went out. The Smokin' Tex website sells them for $50 + shipping, but that seems high. Was thinking this same thermostat may be used in other brands of electric smokers, so maybe its widely sold and I can find the same thermostat at a...
