Guru'd Kettle?
« on: October 23, 2012, 03:11:53 AM »
Anyone here have a 22" kettle with a BBQ Guru WSM adapter, bulkhead fitting, Stoker, Auber or IQ setup?

I'm planning on adding the WSM adapters to my Redheads Performer and Master-Touch/Cajun Bandit and looking for any pros/cons from those that have.
Specifically the Cajun Bandit will have the ash pan from a Sears/Weber Economy Kettle below the charcoal ring so it will be more in line with the WSM, the Performer will have the Stacker in place with foil covering the One-Touch vents and a 3/16" steel disc replacing the aluminum pizza pan as the heat sink.
I cook on: Backwoods Gater, Lang 36, Hunsaker Smokers, Pellet Pro 22" WSM, BGE's, WSM's, Cajun Bandits, PK Grills, Drum Smokers, Genesis Silver C, Weber Q's, Cookshack 008, Little Chief, La Caja China #2, Lodge Sportsman...oh yeah! Weber Kettles! Kamado restoration and pit modification hack!

I am pretty sure Troy has one on his red Bandit setup. I like the sears economy ash pans on smokers. Good idea.

I have the guru on my cajun bandit. I used the bulkhead adapter. Drilling wasn't too bad. My biggest complaint is reviving the fan from the adapter after use. sometimes it's a major pain to remove.

I put a light coating of olive oil on the o-ring on the fan before I install it in the adaptor. Works good for me.

good idea, i have some grapeseed oil in the garage already, i'll definitely lube the o-ring next time i use it.
