SMOBOT is a patented robotic damper system that attaches to the top vent of most Kamado style smokers like those from Big Green Egg, Kamado Joe, and Primo Ceramic Grills. SMOBOT monitors the temperature inside the smoker using a high temperature thermocouple. When the temperature varies from the target you set, the controller tells the damper how much to open and close to maintain the temperature you choose. Think of SMOBOT as your smoker robot.
Airflow is controlled by the natural draw through the top damper, which makes installation easy and power consumption low. The damper replaces the manual factory daisy wheel, attaching to the top vent cap with the single existing screw in a matter of seconds. Your smoker works just the way it was designed. Because SMOBOT only moves the damper when necessary, power consumption is low. SMOBOT is powered through its micro-USB connector. If desired, powering it from a low-cost USB battery pack is a great option when an outlet isn't available.
