I currently have a cob/clay oven which is three years old.
Looking at replacing it next year with a brick barrel/vault oven.
Will put thermocouples in the new oven so have a few questions.
How many do you think? Was thinking front, middle, back (top and bottom)
What temperature do I need to cover? 0oC to 600oC will that do it
Would like to be able to replace them if possible, so was thinking of the rod type that will go through the insulation on the top Or is it better to just bury multiple thermocouples in it for redundancy?
Have put together a small board with an arduino uno, a max31855 thermocouple board and an .96" OLED display. The idea is to have all thermocouples read by one board if possible, each having its own OLED display.
The boards will act as data logger to a webserver, for read outs via any web enabled device in the house. So I can see current temps when lit and historical data for past firings of the oven.
