    I had a brainstorn! Get a wireless security camera and point it at the smoker on the sending unit of a ET-7. Now you have computer access of your temps. This is about as geekey as I get. [​IMG]

    I thought that helped to build brain cells, or was it fat cells? Oh well.

    Your both wrong, it's gut cells. They tell me I'm out of shape, I keep telling them round is a shape. [​IMG]

    if you really want to do this, ditch the oven probes and go with a thermocouple.  Go to www.phidgets.com.  Buy their USB to thermocouple controller.  Go to www.thermoworks.com and buy the best thermocouple you can afford.  If you do both of these things, I know a good programmer who would write you a program for free.

    I think he would be even further behind than using the camera approach.
