Huzzah Feather ESP8266
#1
Oh My.....Love the Digital Pinball Machine...!! Been wanting to build one of those, but I am a bit shy of the wood working skills. :-)

My name is Steve.....and I am planning on building a smoker controller using the MicroDamper. I was going to build the HeaterMeter, but I have so many parts that I have on hand, and HM code is a bit complicated, due to using the 328P AVR. So my plan is to use the Huzzah Feather ESP8266....and I have a Motor Featherwing to drive the fan motor. I bought the 5V fan, and the SG90 servo. I am going to use the Quad MAX31856 for SS K-thermcouples....because I have on hand. In addition, I am planning on adding an OLED .96" display with a Rotary Encoder Pushbutton, so I can display menus and setup the PID loops....set temps....etc.

I see you said in your intro post that the ESP8266 did not have enough horsepower to do webserver and PID.....do you think this is true with the newer version....ie....80mhz version...? Any thoughts on this direction...? If this doesn't work, then I might just add a cheaper ESP8266 as the webserver...using your code base or maybe just have the Huzzah post the data to Blynk.....lots of options...!!

I already have done the OLED with the Encoder and so I have that code running on a Teensy 3.2.....I used it to make a programmable Looper for another guy. I am studying the PID code for arduino over my vacation....so I will be coding in another week or so.

Thanks for hosting this site....and I will be back in a few weeks with some preliminary testing.
