Our Pellet Pro PID Controller© is the ONLY pellet grill controller that uses PID Autotuning Algorithm Technology which uses a relay feedback from the RTD every 4 sec to adjust the auger feed rate and fan speed to maintain your set temperature within 5-10°±!
Unlike most controllers that are used for other brands of hopper assemblies, our PID controller will auto tune to your particular application. No need to be concerned about changing outdoor weather conditions or factors such as the pellet BTUs. Gone are the frustrating drastic temperature swings and having to manually change your settings. Our controller maintains your temperature consistently for the entire duration of long and slow cook times. Also available is our own custom made wire harness. It enables you to operate two or even three hopper assemblies with one controller on larger applications
*Additional ventilation may be required if attempting to maintain temperatures below 200°F*
|Dimensions||9 × 6 × 5 in|
With Adapter Plate, Without Adapter Plate
PID Description Overview
As the name suggests, PID algorithm consists of three basic coefficients; proportional, integral and derivative which are varied to get optimal response. Closed loop systems, the theory of classical PID and the effects of tuning a closed loop control system are discussed in this paper.

This controller is compatible with most Pellet Grill Brands!! (I.E. Traeger, Pit Boss, Camp Chef…)
It is Not Compatible with Green Mountain Grills or Tailgating style Grills.
*The mounting hole must be at least 2-5/8″ wide on the hopper assembly for the PID Controller to be mounted*
NOTE* Due to the upgraded connector for the RTD Probe, it may be required to open up the hole on the side of the grill in order to mount the RTD Probe that is included with the PID Controller.
**If your application’s connectors are not compatible with the Pellet Pro® Controller©, wires can be spliced together. ALTHOUGH, be sure positive and negative connections are correct.**
The adapter plate allows you to upgrade your Traeger, Camp Chef, Pit Boss, an many other similar style grills!
Will work perfectly with any grill brand where the measurement between the screw holes are 5″ apart.
If you need to mount the PID Controller to a hopper assembly that it designed for a horizontally mounted controller, please select the option to “Add Mounting Hardware for a Horizontally Mounted Controller” before adding to cart.
Since the PID Controller is vertically mounted, additional modifications may be needed in order to mount correctly.
Please check out the video below to view the mounting process.
The Pellet Pro® PID Controller is used by us as a retrofit for many different brands of pellet grills. Some brands may not be compatible with the PID Controller as it is designed to be used with a 2 rpm 0.4 amp auger motor and .48 amp fan motor.

Haven’t used it a whole lot yet, but it appears to work really well on my pitboss 700FB. I was having issues for some reason this year holding temperatures under 300 degrees so I decided to upgrade to this controller because it was a PID controller. Virtually plug and play since I just used the probe already in the grill (keeping the one in the kit as a backup). Happy with the results so far and can’t wait to use it a bunch this summer. I’m also very impressed with how fast smoke daddy shipped it out, wasn’t expecting to get it in a few days up here in the great white north. Thank you.

Installed in my Asmoke as300, the stock controller would not hold anywhere near the right temps and constantly went into an over heat error and shutdown .This pid controller works great! Almost plug and play just had to modify the main power connector. Also got it with the adapter plate which I also had to modify to make work but nothing major. This controller will hold fairly even about a 20-25 degree temp swing and the Asmoke seems to run a lot smoother and ignites faster. I also installed this controller in my Zgrill for almost the same reasons. It also works perfectly now! Thanks Dan and all of you at smokedaddyinc for a great product and your charcoal flavored wood pellets are amazing as well!!
