Hey… I may be breaking forum protocol (my bad if that's the case)… but Johnny Tex … did you AUTO TUNE your AUBER PID WSD-1503CPH for the SI3 to update the PID values?

It seems doing this may help for optimal (i.e. tighter control) on the temps…

Just wondering ...

Ben, you mentioned making your own custom PID in a couple threads.   How is that going?  Any updates?

Steve

No I didn't. I talked to the manufacturer and he said try it without it.
I got a 1 or 2º temp swing so felt I didn't need to do it.

yes, still working out all the details, but have come to find a lot of the information I have been looking for to get started. Looking like it will have up to 16 channels for sensors, 1 for smoker (or maybe one at three different levels) and rest for meats. Definitely wifi for access from a tablet/smartphone/pc...can't stand the low distances from the maverick's. Might even end up with at touch display. Just sourcing out all the parts and coming up with a usable form factor. I will keep posted.

Hey Ben, you might want to start a new post under Upgrades to track your progress on a new PID!  Sounds really interesting!

Oh I will. Just when I have more solid info. Don't want to get too excited if something doesn't turn out right. So I will post something in the near future.

Johnny T - Great info as usual.

I read where someone bought the 1240 for their #2.  Will the #2 support the 1530 or do I need to purchase the 1240?  I am new to smoking and want to get the correct thing.

Johnny... What are you cooking and getting such good swings? What's inside? Water pot etc. maybe I had too little meat and thus the broader swings.

Also anyone know how to record and chart stuff with an auber? Is there an adapter of sorts one could buy as an add on...

I usually just fill it up with meat. No water.
Usually 2 or 3 racks of ribs or three chickens.
