circulation fan help
« on: November 01, 2006, 08:45:40 pm »
Hi, I have read everything I could find on the forum and the recipe site about the circulation fan.  Has anyone found a good motor that is already CCW rotating?  If so, could you please post a link for it and the fan blade you used.  I really want to start getting the stuff together for this project but am nervous I might get the wrong equipment.

Thanks for helping if you can.

search for C frame motors and the associated fan blades.  The one motor I purchased was reversable by physically switching parts on the motor.

Where should the fan be mounted. And how does this help. I know as men we feel the need to modify everything. Now I am not the smartest guy but would bradley not have mounted a fan if it would improve the product. I am waiting for my smoker to show up. I just purchased it. I want it so bad I can not stand to even go to work.

I think there are always things handy people come up that improves already good products to make them even better.  I would imagine that sometimes it is not cost effective for manufacturers to add things because the end result might make it too pricey.   Mounting a fan is something I still need to do...Eliminate those hotter spots!!! Someday maybe!! Welcome to the forum preston1 there alot of helpful people here, and you will enjoy your Bradley for sure, I know I do mine ;D

Here is a post that details the fan instillation.  This is another members post, not mine, so I can't answer any questions about it.

Good Luck
