    Post your live HeaterMeter Cooks

    Bryan started a thread a few months back here: http://tvwbb.com/showthread.php?4277...erMeter-graphs for users to post their cook graphs using the Heater Meter.

    Many months back when I was thinking about biting the bullet and someone posted a live link to their current cook and I was mesmerized for hours. Instantly sold.

    I'd like to start this thread to take it one step further and allow Heater Meter users to share their live cooks, and also let those that have yet to build one get feel for the great interface that Bryan has put together.


    Details of todays cook:

    9 pound Pork Shoulder my neighbor brought over and wanted cooked after I teased him with samples of previous cooks.
    Being cooked on a UDS, HeaterMeter 4.0, rPi Model A
    PID settings: B=4 P=3 I=.005 D=20
    Min Fan 5, Max Fan 35% (Not using the fan from the build)
    Typically use Royal Oak lump charcoal, today using Kingsford Blue briquettes mixed with the remnants of yesterdays lump cook.
    It's windy with rain/thunderstorms expected most of the afternoon/evening.
    Plan on foiling at 160 until done.

    Picture of my setup here as it's running now with my Heater Meter ziplocked, tupperwared and hiding out under my gas grill cover to stay out of the weather. Also note the custom wind shield for the fan.

    Great idea to start a live cooks thread...

    I am still jealous of your very cool looking graph, I love the realistic flames and the black background! I never cared much for the blue overlay, it just seemed to dull things out IMHO... I managed to steal your fire3 image (sorry for doing that without asking first) but editing the page is another story. I would have no problem editing the HTML but it is in the hidden folder that can't be seen in windows, and I am not up to speed enough on ssh and linux to upload and download files, and don't have a linux machine up and running at the moment where I could have easy access to the hidden folders. I was hoping perhaps Bryan would integrate your updated graphics into a future HM release so I wouldn't have to go through setting up a linux machine to work on this??? If not I guess I am gonna have to dig in and go for it, cause I really like the look you've got going on there... If you have any pointers on getting this done (did you use ssh or connect the SD card to a linux machine?) they would be appreciated (sorry to bring this up in your live cook thread, if you have tips to share and would prefer to add them into the thread about customizing the interface that would be cool)

    I love it! Thanks so much for doing this! I've thought about making one and it was nice seeing the interface. Totally awesome.

    I like how you can immediately tell when you foiled it lol

    Looks good. Kinda curious what the white box is on your graph. Athough I upgraded to the v.10 I dont see that on mine.

    It is the PID output. Press the "P" button when on the graph screen and it will pop up.

    Had a few hiccups at the beginning. I bought 2 new ET732 probes and im not sure if I like them. I had them in boiling water and they checked ok. Well see how they work.
