SMOBOT is a patented robotic damper system that maintains your chosen temperature by opening and closing your grill’s damper. We like to think of SMOBOT as your smoker robot.

SMOBOT uses the natural draw of your grill’s top damper to control the airflow, operating with higher accuracy for longer periods. Unlike other temperature-controlled systems, there’s no blower unit with SMOBOT. The inside temperature of your smoker is monitored by a high-temperature thermocouple. The controller tells the damper to open or close if the inside temperature deviates from your preset temperature.

Low Power Consumption

SMOBOT only moves the damper when it needs to, meaning it uses less power than other systems. A micro-USB connector powers SMOBOT, but you can use a low-cost USB battery pack for unplugged cooking sessions anywhere.

Easy Installation

The SMOBOT robotic damper replaces the manual factory daisy wheel found on most Kamado-style smokers, like the Big Green Egg, Oklahoma Joe, Kamado Joe, and Primo Ceramic Grills. It takes mere seconds to attach SMOBOT to the top vent cap with a single screw.  Or use our custom cap for even more flexibility.
