Actually this meat smoker sends you a text message and not a tweet (although I’m sure you could rig it up) but Tweet has a nice rhyme to it that makes the title work oh so much better. Disclaimer done. This homemade meat smoker was built by Peter Rauch. He used a proportional-integral-differential controller to modulate electrical power through a heating element. I have no idea what that means either.
But I do know this, when Pete’s meat is on the heat, sensors read both the meat’s internal temperature and the smoker’s temperature and send a text message when they reach certain temperatures. Additionally, when the meat’s temperature hits a number you set, the smoker’s controller can drop the dial down to hold the meat at that temperature and not cook it any further. In other words, set it and forget it. Now that’s the type of cooking I can get behind.
