Anyone try one of these?
« on: June 13, 2011, 08:12:24 pm »
Just wondering if anyone tried this power vent instead of the fan mod. Would it work as well? A little pricer instead of a fan kit from Smoke & Stuff or a Pit Runner Fan from BBQ Guru.

Check with Nepas, i think he uses one from time to time.
If i remember correctly he liked it pretty well.

My memory is pretty bad, but I think he passed it on to another member. Could be wrong.

looks like a nice unit, only two items i would be concerned about, 

1) weather affecting the power connection

2) smoke and moisture getting into the motor  from the  smoking / cooking process

I think that fan is more designed to help dry your product, like jerky.
