I was really interested in the Lockhart as well until on another forum real-time users have said the top portion is really only good for cold smoking and also they are only Bluetooth.... disappointing.
The retrofit PID WiFi controller works great for camp chef. I had and installed on and then uninstalled it and retrofitted on my step fathers grill instead. Can confirm it works great.
Only Cold smoke may be good, depending on actual temps it can reach. So many pellet smokers won't go below 150. If the box can be controlled between 100 and 170, that would be perfect...JJ
Hi John. After i purchased the camp chef i got a few upgrades for it. Everything worked great no issues with the wifi pid controller. However, i had the opportunity to buy a Yoder YS640 so i jumped on that. I couldn't justify keeping 2 grills that were basically the same. Though i am looking at picking up a Kamado style cooker right now. So since my parents had the same grill i thought i could install those accessories (PID wifi controller, folding front shelf, sear box, cover) on their grill save them some money while giving them the upgrades figuring i wouldn't get the return on the investment i had spent to get them. I then sold my camp chef as stock and used the money to upgrade the Yoder to the ACS wifi controller. The YS 640 is pictured in my avatar pic.
