Iam currently developing an open-source bbq controller project, which i will call "THE BBQ Sentinel"
This bbq Sentinel will watch over your bbq meat while you attend your guests, and signals you when everything is perfectly grilled, the way you like it.
Sit back, relax and don't miss anything of the party conversations, the sentinel is your grill meister of the evening.
the electronic schematics and embedded code will be open-source.
What kind of features will this Sentinel have:
4x temperature probes
1x 25 CFM Fan 24volt
1x motorized Air Flow daisy wheel spinner
1x Color LCD ( future planning touchscreen)
SDcard (store your temperature logging)
Wifi connection Webinterface ( you can monitor and control your meat brisket from the office ;)
Android App ( Bluetooth control your bbq temperature from your Android phone or tablet )
***Android app paid PRO version
So what is the current status of this project:
- Research which electronics parts.
- Designing the first version of the PCB board.
- Programming the embedded code.
- Learning to write an android APP.
So, if you like the sound of this , be sure to come back from time to time.
