    Upcoming blower accessory for ThermoWorks Signals

    From today's email blast from ThermoWorks.

    --



    Have you found our secret display icon? When you first turn Signals on you can see a Fan Icon and the words “Set Temp” appear. Any guesses as to what that might be for???

    If your guess is that Signals is set up to control an upcoming ThermoWorks fan blower for your smoker, you wouldn’t be wrong!

    Signals is secretly two products in one. Look for the companion product in Summer of 2019. It will automatically pair with all existing Signals.

    I did not notice that, but I just went and checked mine and boom! That's cool. I'm sure I'll be giving it a try when they release the other parts. Thanks for passing along.

    Thanks for the heads up, Chris. Will have to check it out when mine arrives. Said 2-5 days Green color (so I don't misplace / loose it soo easily...)
    Will be used to replace my Stoker.

    Hi Vince,

    Glad to see you back online Vince !!!!

    Mine is still working, but...

    I kept our WSM (single 22) stored outdoors in the weather w/o any cover. The fan and dog bowl was almost permanently attached to the WSM. I fully gasketed it (bowl) back in 2011 and it became stuck to the WSM. So it too sat outside. The phono plug connector's white nylon cover has deteriorated to the point where it no longer protects the attached circuit board. I talked with Ken ( I think) about getting a replacement nylon cover but his offer to replace it never materialized.

    During one cook, the box took a dive to the ground and broke off the rear antenna's tip. Turned off the WiFi, since I hardly ever use it. Never found the tip and the enclosed antenna 'spring' got lost sometime thereafter.

    The Stoker has been an Excellent ATC. Could not ask for more, control wise! But I want something that I can replace it with for the long run. Since I run only a single WSM, the Signals unit _may_ be the answer. Time will tell...

    And.... it's out.

    Edit: removed URL.

    Go here: https://www.thermoworks.com/Billows?tw=VWB&chan=TVWBB so Chris gets credit.

    46CFM fan, that should be sufficient for a huge smoker.

    And you can gang-up two together for really big smokers!

    "An optional expansion connection kit is available to pair two Billows with the same controller for large smokers or cookers, but you’re not likely to need it, as powerful as Billows is."

    I can't contemplate how big of a smoker you'd need for a 46CFM fan, let alone two. Or it's horribly leaky, which is why I ditched my horizontal offset and built my own.

    Even the monster commercials should need that much forced airflow.
