Implementation of FPGA-Based Controller for Smokehouz
Smokehouse is used to cook the meat with a burning wood smoke aroma. The smoking process is fairly complicated since various parameters are required to be controlled. To ensure the meat is juicy, tendered, cooked, and smooth after being smoked, all the parameters must be precisely controlled. The main purpose is to avoid the meat being over smoked, over cooked and downgrades the taste. Traditional way of smoke cooking is tedious and non-standard process. It requires an exceptionally accurate and efficient cooking system to establish a standard smoke cooking process which is comparable to the traditional method. Thermal property of the whole chicken leg is used to estimate the total smoking time without overcook. Therefore, FPGA-based controller provides simultaneous processing hence reduces time of data reading and provide real time controlling on the smoking process. It capable produces the smoked whole chicken leg in 35 minutes, and maintaining the water loss below 20%. This is able to maintain a juicy smoked of chicken leg.
