    Sounds pretty difficult to me, unless that was my day job. Meaning, I wouldn't want to try to cobble one together.

    I'll wait for your review, Max. If it's any good, I could see myself buying.

    You guys don't want to hear about most of the stuff that goes through my mind.

    Ha, I missed that thread, but his reasoning is precisely the same as mine.

    It seems you and Meathead think alike. This was his post in a recent thread regarding BBQ gizmo's you would like to see created as a startup.........

    "I don't understand why I can't have a thermostat on my gas grill. I have one on my indoor oven and when it died I replaced it for less than $50. I know it is problematic with multiple burners. It would be really cool if it was an aftermarket product that could be adapted to fit any grill. But I want to set it and forget it. We have thermostat controllers for pellets and chargoal, why not gas? After all, cooking is all about temp control"

    But... why? It's gas. All you're really doing then is turning it into an outdoor gas oven. The reason we care about it when smoking is that we want to achieve some predictability for long cooks but even then, really, it doesn't matter to most cooks if the temp is 240, 260 or 280.

    To a degree (hah), I think there's an over emphasis on precise temps and flat Fireboard graphs.

    You were ruminating over that? Really?

    It really shouldn’t be very difficult to implement. All you should need is a thermo probe to monitor grill temp and a PID controller to control the overall grill temp using a gas valve placed inline in the main gas line into the grill. The normal grill knobs would control the distribution of temps in the gasser itself. Sigh ... there goes any hope of a patent ... 😎 ...

    Aftermarket propane controllers that do just that exist. Niche market.

    Most likely reason I can think of as well.

    only think I can think of is that most of the gas grill market is interested in direct grilling where precise temps aren't a big deal.
