Gold medal winner by amazingribs.com

This PID controller is for controlling the temperature of Big Green Eggs smokers. It fits venting damper heights of about 80mm or 3.14", for example Medium and Large Big Green Eggs, Primo Oval XL, older version of Akorn Kamado, as well as the Kamado Joe. It will regu­late the on/off time interval of the blower to stabilize the temperature in the charcoal smoker.

The system includes:

  1. Controller with artificial intelligent enhanced PID control program. It has a bright LED for outdoor use. It has a built-in buzzer that can be set for bot­h low limit and high limit alarm. Developed by industrial control engineers, this controller utilizes an advanced AI (artificial intelligence) enhanced PID algorithm that can hold the cooking temperature within a tight range and prevent temperature overshooting from disturbances such as opening/closing the pit lid, wind, sun, and ambient temperature drops.
  2. AC to 12VDC adapter with 1A maximum output. Note: we only carry adapters for two major plugs used worldwide: NEMA1-15 and CEE7/16. For the US and most international orders, we will ship the adapter for NEMA1-15 by default. For European continental countries, we will ship the adapter for CEE7/16. Customers in some countries may need to find a plug converter in local electronic stores to make the adapter fit into their socket.
  3. K type thermocouple with alligator clip that can be easily attached to the rack.
  4. An adapter plate for the medium and large Green Egg. Primo Oval XL, or Kamado Joe. (For Akorn Kamado this adapter is not needed)
  5. A snap-on blower that can be installed on Big Green Eggs adapter. This unique design (patent pending) is much easier to install than the other product on the market. Click here to see how easy it is to install or remove the blower. ( For Akorn Kamado the spring is not needed)
  6. 6" of High temperature aluminum foil tape for blocking unused venting holes.

1. Optional 12V Li-ion battery pack can be purchased from other vendors (Amazon Link). Auber has tested this 12V/8300mAh battery pack, which has enough capacity to power our BBQ controller with fan for a regular smoking or BBQ process.
2. Optional inline power switch cord is offered. Please check here for more details.

*The maximum air flow rating (rated at zero static pressure) may not reflect the true performance of the blower for this application. The static pressure rating is also important. The fan used in Auber blower is from one of the highest quality fan manufacturer. When compared with a 5 CFM blower from competitor, our 6.5 CFM blower moves more than twice the air mass in the real application condition. It is comparable to the performance of the 10 CFM blower from other manufacturer.

Included in the kit (the sensor shown is TC-K6A. Probe TC-K3MM-C is also available)
