I am a total newbie and have never done anything with Arduino, but I have a project that I think it might work for.
I have a large commercial BBQ smoker, that use three wood pellet firepots for a heat source.
I need to ensure that three firepots ignite when I start the smoker. The challenge is that I cannot (easily) see the flame or the firepots.
I am looking to mount a sensor to each firepot, and I hope that I can use two LED lights to signal if they are lit or not. Basically if the temp is too low, a red LED light would be on, if the temp is above a certain level, the light is green.
Once the firepots are lit, they never go out, so I just need to ensure that they are lit on the startup.
Any suggestions on the best way to accomplish this?
