Phillip P, thanks for speaking from experience. I looked yesterday and realized that the vents come in beside the charcoal bowl rather than under it so other than getting really creative, I concluded the bowl is going to have to be cut. I'm not QUITE ready to do that yet. Did you figure out a way to seal up the bottom hole when not in use with a blower?
I found a pic of how the BBQ Guru Weber adapter attaches and noted how it points down to actually blow down into and under the coals and I can imagine it's much more effective at stoking the fire.
Good day everyone,
I appologise in advance if my question has been asked before though I could not find it in the thread:
I would like to built an airburner for my WSM 18.5. How do the people who are using these prevent the holes from clogging up with ash?
Is this happening at all or is this simply not a problem / issue?
You can also set your max fan speed to something < 100%. For my UDS and fan I have it set at 30%, or else it just cools the smoker as well. The fan could just be over sized.
