    I have a WSCGC that I bought in 2016. I don't see a port anywhere. Where is it located? Has anyone removed the gas burner and used that hole? I just bought a Fireboard2 and wanted to het the drive fan for it

Called the BBQ Guys customer service and they didn't know but they called the store to get someone to look and they said they didn't see one and were not aware of the unit having a port.

    The port appears to be top secret. Is it still there?

    FYI - The port is still there. Got a shinny silver cap. No idea why the sales person couldn't find it.
    Got the adapter installed but not using the fan until I learn the cooker bare. First long cook was pretty steady without electronics.

    Congrats, you’re gonna love it.
    And the Vortex is a GREAT accessory. That combo is a wing grillin’ machine. And yes, the medium is the correct size.

    Trigger Pulled, Order Confirmed, guess I need a Vortex (assume a medium), Pit Viper fan and adapter. Wish the SNS was still available.

    FWIW, that fan port has always been stealthy for some reason. I don’t recall ever seeing it in any of the Weber propaganda.

    Perhaps they figured that if they pointed it out, people wouldn’t believe that it can hold temps as well as they claimed. Which it pretty much does.

    aucivil maybe try email. They will have time to research the answer and get back to you.

    She did put me on hold while she checked with her supervisor.

    Thanks for the info. I really don't understand why Weber nor BBQ Guys' customer service could answer that question. Will probably buy direct from Weber.
