This one is on my list to buy in the next month as I damaged my Rec-Tec controller. I had the Savannah Stoker which to me is the best aftermarket controller I have tried, but it does not have WiFi.No, I don't have one. I think Dave has this controller maybe he will chime in.
I have that one on my PB Austin XL, but when I upgraded last year, I bought the complete Pellet Hopper/PID Controller assembly upgrade, so I didn’t have to modify anything like mounting the controller. The mounting mod looks super simple though. As far as temp control, it’s way better then the original controller that came with the Austin XL, but that one was a non PID Controller. PID or Non PID, Pellet grills are still burning wood pellets, so it’s not going to be the same as using an oven in your kitchen, but it can be pretty close. SmokeDaddy has the new Patriot WiFi PID Controller available now. I’ll post the link to it below... SmokeDaddy is a family owned company and are super great to work with. If you have any questions before you place your order, just give them a call. They’ll be happy to answer all your questions. Dennis is the owner and he’ll stand behind everything they sell 100%.
