 These three functions are only available if the **Smoker Control** setting is set to **Auto (with engine speed)** on the [[wiki:​opconfig:​tabs:​motors#​smoker|Motors tab]] of OP Config. These functions allow you to turn the smoker effect on or off at will. The smoker is enabled by default, so these functions are entirely optional, but some people may want to selectively turn off the smoker from their transmitter even when the tank is running, and these functions give you that option. When enabled, the smoker speed will be automatically determined by engine speed and other relevant settings. When disabled, the smoker will be stopped and remain off even when the tank is in motion. The toggle function is useful for swapping the status from a single two-position switch. ​ These three functions are only available if the **Smoker Control** setting is set to **Auto (with engine speed)** on the [[wiki:​opconfig:​tabs:​motors#​smoker|Motors tab]] of OP Config.

 +===Smoker Preheat - Enable | Disable | Toggle (D)===
 +If you are using a smoker type that involves separate control of the heating element and fan, you will also be given the option to specify a preheat time (see the [[wiki:​opconfig:​tabs:​motors#​smoker|Motors tab]] of OP Config). This preheat setting will turn on the heating element when you start the engine but will delay the actual engine start for the time specified in order for the smoker oil to heat up. This is convenient for creating smoke but is inconvenient since it requires you to wait every time you start the engine. You may wish to disable the preheat delay manually from your transmitter,​ which is what these functions allow you to do. **Disable** will skip the preheat time even if it is specified, **Enable** will cause the engine start to delay so long as a preheat time is specified, and **Toggle** will toggle between Enabled and Disabled. ​
