I have a MES 30 smoker and have been toying with the idea of a PID controller. I dont need to be sold on the need for the PID as I am familiar with masterbuilts faults. My question is a lot of people (generally everyone) recommends a Auber PID with a much higher wattage rating than what my heating element is rated for. I think my heating element is a 800w element. So why do I need a PID rated at 1400+w?
