Dairy is *not* pub IMHO; diary should be for RE-related stuff.

Not sure if you guys are aware, the diary section can be moved to the pub section, but would have its own threads "next to the pub" instead there would be two category's. I can do this very easily.

I have been cheating with my ribs. I will take the rib slabs and cut in half I can only hold two slabs, my smoker is small. Any way I take the ribs put then on a cookie sheet and cover with tin foil. I use rub and brown sugar. Then cook in oven at 250f...

I use a pellet fired Traeger so no water pan but for fish I would only dry cold smoke or dry hot smoke for immediate eating.

those temperature meters are useable, but they may be off by 2C from one meter to the next.

Also you will want to hot glue the wire into the back of the case, it is very thin cable. they run from 1.5 volts so buy AA's to run them, or buy a pack of 50 o...

Too many meters although all the temperature measuring is a good idea 

To monitor what is happening I am gathering together the various sensors for DC and AC voltages, currents,
AC frequency and temps at various locations then using an Arduino Meg25...

Thanks Mary B,

Do use a water pan?  I had a hard time using the water pan with smoking white fish, never had a problem with salmon. What I did with these last to batches of swordfish, is let them smoke for about 3 hours with the water pan then remove t...

You should find something in there.

If the cells are matched in the panel, no harm should come from shorting them.... but if the cells have mismatched internal resistance (micro cracks in particul...

This batch came out really good, I used the water pan for about 2.5 hrs,  then just wood for an hour and a half.

Hi

If by testing the solar panel alone you mean you connect the amp meter across the panel, you are imposing a dead short across the panel, when you test it in circuit there is resistance added to the circuit, but need more information.

What size panel...

Hi guys is there a fault in my system bank? cause when I test my solar panel alone  it's giving me 2amp but when connected between live wire is giving me 1.2amp😕.
Cannot understand this.
Any help please?
Thanks
