Huzzah Feather ESP8266

Dave,

I got it working....!! I am using the BLYNK Application running a Local Blynk Server on a RaspberryPi3.  That was so easy to setup.! I have the iPhone Blynk App and the Android App(in an emulator) running on my phone and Laptop. This was my first run, and I forgot to program in the Lid Up routine to shut off the PID loop, when the micro determines that the lid was lifted. That made my fan blow on the coals and the heat got away from me a bit....but that is already fixed for my next smoke attempt.   I have it setup to use 4 K-thermocouples and of course the PID with Servo Damper and fan blower. I attached a pic of my controller on my desk and the Output graph of the cook and one of the Blynk screens.  My next step is to send the data to ThingSpeak and capture real time graphs with HighStock graphing.   The Huzzah seems to run everything fine....very solid.  I am also going to add a local OLED display to the clear case, so I can show temperature right at the Akorn Grill.  I also have a ESP32, but I really don't see a need for it right now, because all the data manipulation is done on the Blynk Server itself....and that server is Free...!  And you can run it on the Pi Zero Wireless.

Thanks again for your direction...it helped a lot...!
Steve
