    I use this fan, http://bbqguru.com/storenav/Index?ca...&productId=403 and this adapter. https://bbqguru.com/storenav/Index?c...=&&productId=6 Works great, and installation was all of 10 minutes. Most of that was finding my roll of foil tape. I'm using a Fireboard with the drive cable to control it all.

    Trying to figure out the best way to mount an ATC fan to the WSM. I’ve seen the SS dog bowl trick, tape over vent holes and running fan through the open hole. I’m curious about those who own/use WSM and ATC’s. What do you recommend? Pics would be nice. 🙂

    I have a WSM and Fireboard connected with a fan. Love how it is working!

    Great advise!

    Thanks for jumping in. First hand experience with a particular cooker is key!

    WSM-18” W/FireBoard & fan. It works fantastic.

    It sounds like you know how to run your WSM manually with out issues. An upgrade like this is nice. You'll be happy with the FIreBoard, I am anyway. Let us know what you think when you get it set up.

    Yeah, this is the best way to go, actually. Learn your cooker first, it also makes it easier to run it with the fan when you have a good base.

    I hear ya. I really only do the same for each cook. I have put three in two cookers, like this week end. That makes it rally handy. @Dewesq55

    Hahahaha, I had sat down and jsut started typing. Then I got carried away. LOL. So, yes, you can use the FireBoard with the WSM. Troutman

    I thought the XP had a "fan" jet engine

    Gee Spin a simple "yes" would have done the trick

    So any comments on the ever rising bushel cost of soybeans ???

    I ditched my water pan, but you're right, it's literally set and forget for hours until you have to chuck some fuel into her with the Fireboard and fan.

    I use the Thermoworks/Billows combination on my WSM and love it. Not here to sell you on Thermoworks, but a fan controller definitely helps you sleep through the night.

    Thank you for all of the feedback, looks like a Fireboard will be in my future. Looking forward to having it make life easier, and I am a data analyst/statistician, so am loving the idea of having all that data about my cooks.
