    Auber fan pipe modification

    It's been 23.6 days since I last modified something, so I knew I was due up. I wanted to:

    a) Get the fan farther from the HEAT, aka the bottom of the barrel. Didn't have any problems, but when the fan went prolong periods without blowing, the pipe did get rather warm.

    b) Bring the point of attachment higher up for easier on/off operation. Definite upgrade!

    c) Maybe tone down the blast of air entering the barrel. Not much difference, and again, no problems up to this point.

    Worked beautifully yesterday on a 3 brisket - 1 butt cook. The briskets were Select and OFF THE CHAIN!! Good Lord they came out awesome, 11 pounds of sliced and burnt ends going to a family reunion today. 4 pounds of chopped for some other folk. I was able to get 44.9215% yield off the briskets. I trim heavy, but get to use 100% of what gets cooked when I chop at least some of it up. Those ultra-fatty point pieces go well with thin dry flat slices.

    Nah you got to get that air coming in from all 4 sides...

    For real though, who won the Tic-Tac-Toe game? Was it W.O.P.R.?

    I am looking to get an SnS and one of those Auber's real soon.

      This little Auber has been a dream come true. One day I will meticulously stack my B & B in that SnS and bust out a 14 hr cook.

        Is the 6.5 CFM Auber a good size for the PBC or would the 10 or 20 CFM be a better choice?

          The 6.5 does great for the supplementation I use it for. Not sure about simply running the fan as the only source.

        Gonna have to start calling you the Mad Scientist, or maybe the Mad Q'er.

            Yes, those were the first two modifications. Increase in air flow = an increase in temp. The problem is they can't compensate the extreme loss in temp when the meat stall kicks into high gear while I am sleeping.

          Not sure if that's a smoker or a moonshine still

              Not much. I have quiet props to go along with a Pratt and Whitney PT6A engine.
