Another year is close to its end, with the Christmas and New Year / Festive Season upon us. As the post title suggests, something from a little left field: a biltong box! There are nonetheless electronic goodies involved – the box has a display, with a temperature and humidity sensor. The display has in-built WiFi connectivity so that the temperature and humidity can be monitored remotely. And also the potential to control a number of switches, relays, or what-have-you; for example to switch a heater, a humidifier, a dehumidifier, etc.
(For those who don’t know what biltong is then of course Wikipedia is a source of information: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biltong. Think non marinated beef jerky and one is close, originating from South Africa, and the taste is exquisite!)
The plan is for a proper write up of the display unit, but for now, and given it’s Christmas Eve, a couple of pictures:
The biltong made to date has turned out fantastically!
