    I know what your going through i'm new to using the heatermeter and rd3, but what they say above you have to fish around on the various posts to find the info to make it all come together. Mounting it to your smoker was the hardest pat for me, but reading some of the posts pointed me in the right direction and with a little ingenuity on my part i managed to get it connected to my kamado. But remember these are do it yourself projects.A user manual would be nice but it was more fun for me to figure it out. Now i'm having fun dialing in the PID settings, and once again i'm getting help by reading some of the posts here. By the way i can't say how happy i am with the heatermeter and rd3 . The latest thing i learned was that i did a meatloaf on the grill for several hours with the HM and RD3 at 375 degrees, pay attention to your probe spec. i kind of melted the thermocouple lead I think the probe is rated at 500 degrees, but the cord 220 should have read the fine print .

    the pics show my first attempt with just a fan, connected to the sink pipe connected to the sink drain, held inplace by bending the vent tabs abit to hold all in place. Then I got the RD3 and went with 3/4" copper pipe burner. Pics are here somewhere in burner threads.
