Yesterday, between rolling blackouts, I finally finished the final finalization of the brainbox of the smoker.
Parts from top:
Come 1x16 LCD with LCD#117 serialization piggyback module from P. Anderson
(Red) Easydriver stepper motor driver from Sparkfun
Microchip PIC 18F2580 programmed with CCS C.
In the end of ribbon cable on left: DS18B20 temperature sensor from Sparkfun.
Next: smoking puck magazine installation, connecting wires and first test run.
