I'll make a better list when I get home, (at work on phone), but let's see.
12v pid controller with the K sensor. 240v to 12v power supply, fan, and a box to assemble it in to.

(EDIT - Firstly, thanks to Beaver for supplying all the names of the parts in his opening post)

This has been a fun challenge looking all this up on ebay tonight.
Here's the list I came up with.
But as fun as it was looking it all up. I still wouldn't know how to wire it up, or if I picked the right parts.
The links below were the 1st I found searching and therefore the cheapest.

PID Controller + Thermocouple - 12V -24V DC AC Digital PID Temperature Control Controller 2 Omron Relay Output
$15
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/310912817604 ... 1423.l2649

Fan/Blower - White Brushless DC Cooling Blower Fan 12V 40X40X20mm 4020S New
$5
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/White-Brushl ... 1003843840?


pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item43c12e4500&_uhb=1

Power Supply - AC 100-240V DC 12V 4.0A Adapter Converter Power Supply
$2.50
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/AC-100-240V- ... 0571152732?
pt=AU_Gadgets&hash=item1e66a5ad5c&_uhb=1

Relay - 12V DC Bosch Style 20A/30A Car Auto SPDT Relay Harness
$5
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/12V-DC-Bosch ... 0612553847?
pt=AU_Car_Parts_Accessories&hash=item4155cfc477&_uhb=1

K TYPE THERMOCOUPLE SENSOR 1 Metre LONG 0~400deg C
$6
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/K-TYPE-THERM ... 1145458807?
pt=AU_B_I_Electrical_Test_Equipment&hash=item3f21875c77&_uhb=1

Total cost = $33.50



I dont want to seem so lazy so early.
Is this the correct list of items?

You don't need that auto relay, but will need a box to put it all in. Also, those links are probably dead, but search for the items.

Confirm with Beaver first, as I'm no electrical expert and may have picked something wrong.

PID and K sensor
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/ITC-100VL-AC ... 4d288d327c
$41

Fan
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Brushless-DC ... 3a7565e8c6
$4

4.0A 12V DC Adapter Converter Power Supply 100-240V AC
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/4-0A-12V-DC- ... 2eb9421966

Plastic Waterproof Sealed Power Protector Junction Box Cover 200mmx120mmx60mm
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Plastic-Wate ... 5b160db426

I can't remember the actual dimensions of mine, so i took a guess. Too cold to go out and measure it.

statts a fan will not restrict airflow enough to prevent "standard drafting/draw" so if the opening that you put your fan on is enough for the BBQ to maintain temp on its own then you will have issues with bringing the temperature back down.

if you think of a kamado bbq where literally 2mm gap will maintain a 225f temp then it stands to reason that a fan attached where the gap is about 15mm will be too much airflow even when stationary.

on the kamado to be able to use one of these i literally have a 1mm top flap and then the bottom use a "gate" on the fan that opens/closes

each pit is very different but you need to find that boundary where when the fan is off it restricts flow and when its on its sufficient to push the temp above your set point otherwise you will (as you have discovered) have a scenario where you will overshoot or undershoot a temperature.

PID's are best applied to an application where they have FULL control of the environmental variables and a flap gives them an Open/Close on/off control environment


Do you think having the fan within the enclosure and a long hose going into the kamado like Yakabot has with his set up would be a good alternative to a flap?

Hi guys

I am having a go at building one of these aver the next few weeks. I ordered the Inkbird 12v - 24v PID with k thermo also ordered 5015s 12v fan 0.14amp.
Question on power supplies. I like the look of a little 12v 2 amp unit that I can mount inside the box with the PID. Do you think 2amp will be enough.
Also can I just wire a female socket to the box and plug in a maverick style temp sensor.
Just trying to make an all in 1 box with no external power pack and thermos that can be removable.

Thank you

Hey all,

Lurked here for a long while buy just joined because of this thread. Been eyeing off a Pitmaster IQ but it's just prohibitively expensive to buy in Australia.

So decided to build one of these, all the parts should be arriving next week.

Just a question to Yakabot, can you show us the insides of your unit? I'm trying to get some ideas about how to mount the fan and your solution looks good, just need some more info on how you go from fan>piping connector.
