Soldering Surface Mount Components

Using a electric skillet I bought from Target I have been experimenting with soldering SMD components. Using a thermocouple on my multimeter, stopwatch and skillet I have been manually emulating a standard reflow profile.

By first marking the average temperature at each of the knobs settings, LOW, MED, HIGH, I am able to predict the approximate dial setting for the desired temperature. Then using the stopwatch the correct time duration can be waited before moving on to the next temperature.
