So i have an MES with burnt out terminals, but while it was down bought a GOSM, then built a UDS. Now the uds gets most of the use. but i want to make sausage, and i hated the hot spot in the MES, so what if i put in a hot plate and wired it to where the heating element used to connect? That way i'd have a thermostat and timer built in, and a heat source in the center of the unit. Plus better smoke at low temps.
