I am looking for recommendations for an ideal smoker that I can add a PID controller to for sausage making. I really like the size of the MES 40, but they do not appear to make that size with an analog element. As nice as everyone here makes 2.5 gen MES 40 with Bluetooth sound; it seems rather illogical to pay three to four hundred dollars for electronic bluetooth controlled unit only to subvert the expense of those controls by re-wiring around them for PID control. There is also the issue of upper temperature limitation with the MES units. The Smokin-it #3 is a nice unit with comparable rack size to the MES 40 but at $700; holy cow – it’s just a box with an electric element! Add a nice PID and you’re out a grand and I was trying for less than half that. Any suggestions?
