The PID I picked up is from Auber Instruments. Not the cheapest but works great holds temp within 1 or 2 degrees. You can save up tp 6 smoke schedules. Each schedule can be configured for time and temp. Sach as for snack sticks you can build a schedule that will control each time temp phase. Turn it on and it runs the schedule. Away to save some cost is to pickup a used mes that the buner still works. You will be bypassing the OEM PID anyway. To finsh off my MES, I added a Smokedaddy cold smoker and placed a ceramic floor tile over the buner to disipate the heat. Both my MES’s have hot spots back right corner. Vent is right over the buner pulling heat straight up that side. I like how my setup works so far.
High temp cheese storage
Can you freeze high temp cheese?
BigJohn72 yes … and how I know is the butcher supply place that I buy all of mine from keeps his frozen.
And also If i dont use it all i put mine in the freezer and have used it a month later and it was fine.
Baconator Yes you can, we freeze all of our cheese here before shipping. I have tested freezing and refreezing it and there are no noticeable issues with doing so.
