Still Around

January 10th, 2010

Hi All, Just a quick update to say this project is still alive!  I have been struggling with some health issues and full time job issues that have been slowing me down, but I am still working on the project.  I have a prototype controller built that has full automated control over the pit and is a drop-in replacement for the current Treager controller.  It has control over the web via WiFi.

Current ToDo List:

  • integrate a LCD for non-web control and status at the pit
  • finish the web interface and controllability via the web
  • implement remote firmware updates
  • debug alarms for temperature and time
  • design v2 of the hardware prototype integrating an LCD and local buttons for control and other changes
  • test on my 075 and post results
  • manufacture 5 prototypes for field testing

    Hi Ryan,

    Health issues can really slow anyone down. I hope the new year brings you both good health and job security. It is so good to hear you are still working on the controller. Their are a lot of BBQ people out here depending on you.

    As always,

    Don O
