HighOnSmoke's Grid Iron Upgrade to Savannah Stoker. (UPDATED)

Mike is interested in the Savannah Stoker IV to replace his Roanoke controller in his Grid Iron, but not close enough to the edge to go over. 
I suggested we install one of my older Savannah Stoker II's so he could get an idea of how it works.  I think he is pleased so far.

As Art (Savannah Smoker) said I am trying out the Savannah Stoker on my Grid Iron. 

Tonight’s dinner is a bacon wrapped pork loin seasoned with Badia Holy Smokes Pork and Meat rub.  My wife
found this rub while shopping the other day and wanted to try it out.  The loin put into the Grid Iron at 225
and I am using hickory pellets.


I smoked it at 225 for an hour and then turned up the grill to 300 to finish it.  At 135 degrees internal I gave it a
little bit of Apple Cinnamon BBQ sauce.  Here it is right out of the grill.


Sliced up enough for dinner.   Lots of juiciness!


My plate with some Spanish style yellow rice with saffron.


This is the first loin I have actually grilled since I got into Sous Vide. That is how I normally do pork loins. This one
was just as tender and juicy as the ones I Sous Vide.   The loin had a nice light hickory smoke flavor. The chili
based rub was excellent on this loin.

So far I like the Savannah Stoker.  I am still working on the settings but I know the large temp swings that I was
getting with my Roanoke controller are not here with this controller.  I will keep posting updates on whether I will
be purchasing the Savannah Stoker 4. If I had to decide today I would purchase it.

OK, I was at your home twice this week and did I get offered any of this kind of excellent foods?
Just kidding anyway that is a nice looking Pork Loin. 
I usually roast a pork loin but after seeing your
cook I will smoke first and than roast.

Mike, first the pork loin looks great!

So, how are you liking the Savannah Stoker on your Grid Iron?  Any first impressions?

First impressions are that I am getting more smoke and stable temps with the stoker. I like that you can adjust
the parameters to your liking. The Roanoke in the Grid Iron has very limited parameters that you can adjust. Plus with the
stoker I can see how much of an overshoot of the actual set temp occurs where with the digital one you never see it.

Let me add that Mike is using my older Savannah Stoker II.
I am using Version III.

Version IV is available now and is a much improved version with a better PID algorithm, improved ergonomics, with the addition of a food probe and programmed cooking.

I have a Stoker 2 in my PTG and it works excellent!

My PTG is in storage right now but I might need to grab it out of storage since it is small enough to keep out back.

Again I have to say that is the sweetest, tastiest, juiciest pork loin I have seen lately.  Cook well done.
