A smoking (cooking) automation system built on the Beaglebone Black

Project Description


Smokematic was inspired by the HeaterMeter and a desire to drive down the complexity of building your own control board from scratch. The Smokematic will control your pit temperature by tweaking air blower speed, alarm when your food reaches a desired temperature, and even control mopping/basting an item. It even works from phones and tablets to avoiding making you get up and getting to a computer to check your smoker status.

Issues / Questions / Feedback

Please submit any bugs, issues, comments, or questions to the project’s issue page.


A working Debian or Ubuntu Linux installation, then

$ pip install smokematic


Build a Smokematic cape according to the schematic provided in the git repository. Once complete, follow the installation instructions and then simply run the smokmatic executable as root. A default configuration file is contained the skel directory but the program takes an optional command-line argument that is the path to customized configuration file. The interface is accessible, by default, at port 8080 with a path of /static/index.html

It is recommended to use a program like supervisor to daemonize Smokematic.


Smokematic requires a compatible Linux installation running on the BBB.
