    I don't have the dual probe per-day, but I did the entire PID modification. I installed the oven temp probe permanently, sticking straight out from the back wall to the left side near the side wall...

    Quick question. I cant see the photo's here at work(blocked), so pardon me if its obvious from the pictures, but was this a fresh ham? I can never seem to find those, they are always pre-cooked. ...

    I cant view the photos here at work(they are blocked). But sounds like you did good. When I do brisket, I plan for a 24 hour smoke, and start with the smoker at 200 for the first 12 hours(next...

    It's a beautiful instrument. Glad I bought it. The alarm is loud enough to hear inside the house from outdoors. Well made, and solid. You can buy the probes from them or less expensive ones...

    One other comment on this, there are larger project boxes that guys have used, and have successfully housed the PID, SSR, On/Off switch all in one package. I just chose a smaller one for asthetic...

    Joe, I have no experience with the PID's with built-in relay. The only issue I could see is if it is built-in, then you will have to have the 120V lines running into the control box where the PID...

    You have to change it out. I removed mine rather than leaving it in there. I also removed the stock thermostat, and used/enlarged that hole for the power on/off switch. I moved my oven temp...

    Here is curt's website, however it looks like it down right now, hopefully only temporary.

    Here is another link to a pretty easy to read schematic. What is missing from that picture however, is...

    What Pepperbo said, always cook to temp, not time. That however, can pose some logisitic issues if trying to plan for a specific dinner time. I prefer my Brisket pulling tender vs, slicing tender,...

    Yea, me too. I typically set my smoker outside a window where I can see the thermo from indoors in the winter. I used to have a maverick remote thermo that I got from ST when I bought my 1400, and...

    Ultimate dual thermometer

    Just saw this at Thermoworks I can't wait for mine to "break", so that I can order a new one. No remote capabilities, but I don't need that anyway.

    Where exactly did it melt? I'm more curious *why* it melted. Was it a oops, or do we have a malfunction? I ask because there is so little to go wrong with these things.

    I have tried rubbing some oil on the skin, but beyond that, no. I dont do any basting with my smoker, because that means opening the door, which I try to avoid. I enjoy smoked chicken, my wife...

    I've done the PID mod about 2 years ago, and am happy with it. No problems, no issues. When I smoke chickens, I will go the last hour or so at 300 or so to brown up the skin a little. It still...

    I think that is a "Smokin It" smoker. I can't comment on that, but love my SmokinTex. Very well made. I happen to have the 1400, and now wish I had the next size up.

    Wheel repair idea's

    Sometime ago, I replaced the standard casters that came with my 1400, with some larger diameter rubber ones I had found at lowes so that it would roll easier. In my rush, I guess I didn't...

    I don't weigh mine out, but usually a small "handful" is all I ever use. BTW, the wood chunks, or blocks, are just for seasoning the smoker, not for cooking food. Pick up a back of hickory, apply...
