Actually that would be a much easier way to adjust the fan speed... Yup I think I'm going to do that nowDirtytires wrote:I'm always the negative nancy, but without full airflow thru the fan, I might me worried about overheating and fan burnout. I'll bet a quick trip to radio shack, a $20 bill and a little luck you could wire in a variable speed dial. I know cost is an issue but so is safety.
EDIT: I took the blower and motor into my electronics professor at school (I love the resources I have right now) to get some expert advice on adjusting the fan speed. He told me to run it at full speed with the baffle over the blower the way I found it, that way the separate cooling fan in the motor will always operate at full speed. I guess this is the normal way to adjust the flow rate of a continuous duty blower/motor combo. It would still be nice to be able to change the speed without having to climb under the smoker, but that project is on the backburner for now.
