So I would need to use a thermocouple to get 4 probes, or can it be set to use 4 of the standard type probes?The Heatermeter will most likely always be 1 pit probe(thermocouple or probe) and 3 meat probes.
Thanks guys.Yeah all the ADC ports are in use currently so there's no place to plug them into. Also, all the UI and backend expect there to be just 4 total probes so the layouts are all fixed with this in mind.
Thanks. I just read up on the differences between the thermocouple and thermistor probes. The faster response, higher accuracy, and possibly higher temp range with a thinner profile are very nice thermocouple features. I am guessing by what I have seen available that about all the consumer smoker thermometers use thermistor probes. Which means you could, depending on probe choice, get more accurate pit readings with the heatermeter with thermocouple. Am I thinking correctly here?HeaterMeters have 4 probes, and the standard board has the pit probe able to be built as either a thermocouple or thermistor.
I didn't realize you could do that. It appears the thermistor would do what I want, but now I am thinking about the bit about leaving it in the smoker. Thanks for all the info.Where I think the thermocouple shines is that I've had mine in the big green egg left outside for years now and it still works perfectly. Their construction is very robust, and I can fire the grill up to 900F if I wanted to without damaging anything. It is integrated into my grill so that's one fewer thing I have to carry out when setting up and I don't have to remove it depending on what is being cooked and it's fine if the 100% Florida humidity gets all over it every day because it won't fail due to moisture intrusion.
