In the spirit of making the smoker with as little tools as possible, the next challenge was mounting the fan to the barrel itself. In the original design a 3D printed adapter was conceived but as we do not have a 3D printer in the office the first attempt will be out of wood.

It is a 40mm fan so by drilling 40ish mm holes into a multiplex piece of wood and then cutting those out and glueing them together it should work.

Coming weekend all the stuff should all get mounted up so stay tuned for assembly pics.
