Ever wanted an excuse to learn Arduino, but don’t want to learn C/C++? Don’t worry. I’ve got you covered.
Part 2 of the series, Building An Arduino Powered BBQ Thermometer, builds on the lessons that you learned in the first article. It takes you from blinking lights in to the world of championship BBQ cooking! Or, at least, the ability to monitor temperatures with your Arduino and report on the results with – you guessed it – an LED (though it doesn’t blink this time). You’ll learn what a “thermistor” is, how to hook it up to your Arduino, and what you need Johnny-Five to do, to read data from it and make decisions based on temperatures.
Part 3 of the series, Arduino: Show Me The Temperature!, completes the series by adding an LCD display to the BBQ thermometer. You’ll go from a binary signal LED to a complete thermometer with both Fahrenheit and Celsius temperature displays!
