    Happy Christmas to y'all!

    Hi guys It's been a while since I have posted here. I replaced my medium BGE with a Large, but it wook forever to install it, because I didn't want to buy the overpriced nest. Christmas was my hard deadline for a table build because I had promised my wife to smoke our Christmas ham. Day before...

    10 lbs beef ribs in apple & Jack Daniels barrel chip smoke. http://plathan.com/heatermeter Probe 1 is in a piece at the center of the BGE, probe 2 is in an edge piece.

    33 hours later I'm finally done! Contrary to all my expectations the beef was still relatively moist, and very tender.

    Ralph, The Super ramp down script is almost a direct cut and paste from HM wiki, I only tweaked the set points and made sure the alarm is disabled when the meat is ready. The final set point is 122F which should equal holding the meat in a cooler. I'm using a servo damper, but the fan is...

    Hi Jay, Thanks for sharing your experiences. I've smoked now three times with HM, and the time it takes feels really long compared to the manual way. My TC is mounted to the BGE's thermometer clip, and the junction is very close to the tip of the analog thermometer. So I guess I'm reading dome...

    25 hours and still going. At around 24 hours mark I finally gave up and gave the damn cow a Texas crutch. This *has* to finish before the second night falls. I've refueled my BGE already twice. http://plathan.com/heatermeter Super ramp down was triggered a couple of minutes ago at 180F.

    Thanks Steve for dropping the email. I was alarmed by my wife at the same time. She actually visits the HM web gui occasionally, which is great! Usually she couldn't be bothered less about my BBQ. I had completely run out of charcoal, there was barely anything left, only ashes and one unit...

    2,6 kg (5.7 lbs) beef shoulder with Jack Daniels oak barrel chips and apple wood chunks. http://plathan.com/heatermeter The BGE should start ramping down at 180F with 2 degree steps to final temperature of 203F.

    How do you set alarms - sorry for the newb question but I can't seem to figure it out

    Thanks! I just started smoking beef shoulder overnight, and I was going to rely on the super ramp down script so that I don't need to wake up several times. My script for 203-205 final temperature is now: #!/bin/sh # The first line of any shell script must begin with the above #! line #...

    How do you set alarms - sorry for the newb question but I can't seem to figure it out

    D'oh! I missed that part! Perhaps the shell should be added in the examples... Thanks Steve! Too bad my pork is 7 minutes to ready, too late to play around with rampdown roday :)

    How do you set alarms - sorry for the newb question but I can't seem to figure it out

    I tried to use the ramp down script in the wiki, but didn't know how, and what I did definitely didn't work as expected. - Pit temp is 225 - Finished temperature should be 203 - Ramp down could start e.g. at 180, in 2 degree steps What I did: - In alarms, I set Pit high enabled, 180, email...

    Yes, it's a thermocouple. This one http://thermometer.co.uk/bluetherm-duo-thermocouple-temperature-probes/1054-crocodile-clip-oven-temperature-probe.html?search_query=133-041&results=2 I've been following the temps on and off while working, and except for the occasional bigger jump the pit temp...

    HeaterMeter Hardware v4.2.4

    Hi Bryan, I have a 6.6V LiFe battery that's sitting unused, and I was wondering if it could be used to power HM. I tried to google HM's input voltage range, and found some postings from hardware version 4.0. There you said that whatever voltage is applied to the DC jack is directly given to...

    I think you're right. I usually hand pick only large charcoal chunks, but today I was eager to start and dumped coals from the bag, including those pesky small ones.

    Okay, I could use some advice here. My cook was successful, apple smoked roast beef came out perfect and wife loved it! After I removed the meat, I continued testing as this is the first time I'm using my HM. I increased pit temp from 110C to 200C and everything was fine till the very moment...

    Ok I get your point. I kind of disagree however regarding the complexity: if the internals would use Kelvins, you would only have to do the unit conversion once when any temperature data is displayed somewhere. My 2c, Antti

    Not sure if this is a known bug: HeatherMeter doesn't handle Celcius->Fahrenheit changes well during a cook. It's fine to change C->F->C while playing around with settings, but if you try to do this in the middle of a cook, things go south. For many this may not be an issue, but I'd like to be...

    My very first HM 4.2.4 test run. http://82.181.216.181:12345. Temperatures are in Celcius and there is a small roast beef (~3 lbs) as test meat. Other specs: - BGE Medium - Tom's Offset rotary valve - Pit probe: Thermocouple ETI Crocodile Clip Oven Probe (133-041) - Food probes: ETI ChefAlarm...
