    3D RAMPs BBQ Controller Idea

    It's Friday! so i thought I'd share where I'm at with that 'fun idea' about using full 3d printer controller board to run HM.... 3d controller boards have temp sensors(3x) and mosfets to control fans and such...and best of all they can be cheap and are all assembled for you. I had the parts...

    Is using just servo control enough?

    for my kamado, I usually smoke around 220-340 (don't do any high-temp cooking with HM)..... I think it's been said that for low-slow that the fan is hardly used to maintain temps, so would I be missing anything/control with just a servo controlled damper (no fan at all?)....other than...

    Open Lid Detect Idea

    Don't know if it's been discussed before...but I was 'thinking' and thought it would be pretty easy to use a cheap tilt sensor on the hinge of my kamado to detect/trigger a "lid open" event. Here's a sample of simple device.... I guess we could even connect it to a probe input (2.5 mm male...

    my all Thermocouple HM min-build

    Hey....Im now attempting an 'All Thermocouple prototype' build of HM using all ali/bay hardware.... it's a headless (no lcd/key) version I'm now trying out....idea is to have a fan/HM hardware all-in-one mini-build..... components I'm using/testing: arduino mini pro (8mhz 3.3v clone)...

    3d Printed probe cord wrapper

    Anyone with the 3d design 'talent' ever create a cord wrapper for probes? Like the ones for headphones but to tidy up temperature probes? Snap the probe and connector, and wind the cable would be ideal.... Something like this or this I find my 'bbq box'....always tangled up and such with...

    HeaterMeter being overclocked?

    Hey, I've finally assembled my first HM....considering my soldering-skills I'd say it went well....but it was definitely not 'easy'....but powered on and worked :) Hardest part was that my at328p chip couldn't be easily programmed (not using a Pi)...but after a bit of research I got to flash...

    How's this for a low-cfm bbq fan?

    I just got one of these fans delivered....I thought, "how bad could it be?....maybe it will work well!"....wouldn't have to 3d print and the barrel looks like a metal type material I only need low cfms....and it blows some low-cfm air. I'll open it up and see if I need or can easily change the...

    Espress for HeaterMeter Module (wifi with no Pi/Linkmeter needed)

    Hi All...wanted to get a separate/dedicated thread for the Espress module that I wrote software for to work with HeaterMeter. It uses the esp8266 wifi chip (with also has a nice processor/ram/flash that can be programmed). I used NodeMCU currently because it's easier to work/flash with...but...

    Different HeaterMeter hardware ideas

    "winter is coming"....tis the season for a DIY project, and I've been looking at doing a controller for my smoker for a long while. After doing my research I'd have to say that heaterMeter is a great project...source code looks good. But I wanted to 'change' things up....in the interest of...
