    Billows and Weber Kettles

    I purchased a Billows and the Smoke X4. with the hopes of installing the Billows on my new 26 Kettle. If you have a fan for your Kettle, 22 or 26, where do you drill the whole? I also purchased one of those graduated drill bits. I assume I just drill it to the same size of the vent holes? I also purchased a few of those rubber grommets to put in the side to run my leads through.. Thank you in advance.

    I have the Pit Viper fan but i expect the design is similar. I would put the hole above the level of the ash sweepers but below the charcoal grate. Might be easiest to drill your pilot hole from inside the kettle. A center punch helps to start the hole if you have one so the drill does not slide. Then use your step bit to slowly drill from outside in till you get the hole size you need. I put mine on the opposite side to my slow n sear.

        ANother question if I can. When you take the Billows off of the grill, what type of plug do you put in that hole?

          Once you put that hole in there, it’s probably not a good idea to intend to not use a temp control fan. No looking back after the hole.

          I suppose you could disable the fan and go back to vents if you wanted to.

        I just leave my fan on the grill or stuff a piece of foil in the hole to plug it up.
