As always, we forgot to order the laser cut housing for the controller and because the good weather is coming to an end the goal is to have a trial run this weekend. This means that the controller has to be mounted to the smoker although the question remains how.
After digging through some electronic scraps, an old home cinema set was salvaged. More specifically for the metal casing. With a multitool we cut out a bracket because of course also no tin snips available :) and finally with all the correct holes drilled (keeping in mind the final product mounts so we dont lose smoke) the following was conjured up.
