HeaterMeter: Control your Grill Using a Raspberry Pi!
With summer right around the corner, it's time to fire up the grill! But who will watch the grill while you're beating the heat?
This year, kick things up a notch with your own Raspberry Pi-powered HeaterMeter. Don't just throw a BBQ, be a part of it. HeaterMeter lets you keep a close eye on your grill and food temperature no matter where you are. Just pull out your phone, check the status of your grill, and make temperature adjustments in real time.
What's a HeaterMeter?
HeaterMeter is an open-source BBQ platform. This project uses heat probes to monitor the temperature of your grill and even posts the current status information in a web-based interface.
How does it work?
Heat sensors relay information to the HeaterMeter box. This is a 3D printed box with buttons and an LCD screen. You can use it to check the current temperature status and make manual adjustments to things like fan speed to keep the grill temperature where you want it. You can add additional probes to monitor the meat you're cooking. More components can be added like a servo-controlled damper.
The Raspberry Pi makes it possible to monitor your food from a distance. You can also trigger custom notifications, texts, or emails when certain temperatures are reached.
