Smokin-It Announcements! / Re: "Big Red" is HERE!!
« Last post by EFGM on Today at 01:03:26 PM »
Doug - if you are cooking to an internal temp you need to tell the probe what temp you are shooting for. Probe #2 will talk to the controller, so if you want the smoker to drop to a keep warm setting it will do so. #3 if used for another item will just track the temperature and have no effect on the controller program such as going to a keep warm setting. Probe#1 of course is the smoker temp probe.

One additional question on Big Red. If you set the PID at temp rather than a program, would Probe 2 just show temps like probe 3 then correct? So in effect I would have two temp probes that I could read remotely and control of the smoker.

Did you upgrade Dave?

Remove the back panel. It sounds like a wire parted. Should be a simple and apparent fix.

I leave my Thermoworks Chef Alarm on top during the entire cook and have not had any issues at this point.

I also looked at the thermopro, but went with the Thermoworks. I do wish I had the second unit for the overnight cooks. I may upgrade one day to the Thermoworks Smoke for that reason, or get really fancy and get the Fireboard.

But yes, the Thermopro seems like it would work well, given the number of reviews.

Enjoy!

Any reason why you shouldn't make this up and refrigerate a few a few days in advance ?
No problem making brine in advance. I usually make mine a day in advance so it's good and cold.

You should be OK, just park it as far from the smoke vent as safely possible.

Seasoning the #1 as I'm typing, I've noticed in most pics people leave the unit on top of the smoker, mine is pretty dang hot. I know I wont smoke at 250, but will it hold up 16 hours @ 225 repeatedly ? On a side note, does anybody have any experience good or bad with the TP20, had pretty good reviews on Amazon ?
