BBQ DigiQ Temperature Control Display

THE DISPLAY

The DigiQ’s three digit LED display has three status indicators.

BLOWER STATUS INDICATOR

The Blower Status Indicator and Blower Display Warble will help determine how the fire is being controlled. When there is sufficient fuel in the pit, the blower will gently puff the fire, feeding it little bursts of oxygen. When the blower is energized, the display will blink about once per second (blower warble) and the blower status indicator will turn on. When the pit starts to run out of fuel, the blower will run almost all of the time.

DETERMINING THE OUTPUT PERCENTAGE FROM THE BLOWER WARBLE

The Blower Warble is designed so that the output percentage of the blower can be determined by counting how many display blinks (warbles) occur in a given cycle as per the table below:

TIP: If the output percentage is around 80-100% for a long time, the pit may be running out of charcoal. If the output percentage is around 10% for a long time and the temperature is oscillating, close the blower damper adjustment slightly for better control.

8.2. FOOD DONE MESSAGE

When the food temperature reaches or exceeds the food setpoint, the display will scroll and the beeper will sound.

8.3. OVER/UNDER RANGE TEMPERATURE

If the temperature goes below 32 or above 485 degrees F on the food or pit probe, the display will show

8.4. FOOD OR PIT TEMPERATURE DISPLAYS

The DigiQ can display either the food or pit temperature. The default is pit. Press the Food button once to display food temperature, then press Pit to return.

8.5. SCAN MODE

Pressing PIT + UP invokes the Scan Mode. In the Scan Mode, the display will flash between the pit temperature and the food temperature about every four seconds. To turn the scan mode off, unplug power. If an alarm occurs during scanning, the display will show the temperature causing the alarm condition until the alarm condition goes away or is acknowledged by pressing any key. Pressing the UP or DOWN keys will change the setpoint of the temperature that is shown on the display.
