Where are you going to drill the hole in your kettle for the Guru adapter?
Also, I'm glad to hear that you haven't actually cooked with the WSM in the pictures. It's much shinier than mine. :biggrin:
Well I talked with Fred about that and he said that as long as the adapter was mounted above the charcoal grate, it could go almost anywhere. My plan is to mount it on one of the sides, probably the same side that has lever for the ash catcher. Not exactly sure yet, that's why I didn't do it when I did the WSM.
Chris, I'm curious about the "above the charcoal grate" reference Fred made ~ Can you elaborate?

Tks, Bill
Well, I’m guessing it’s because the grate and/or charcoal on the grate would help disperse the airflow from the adapter thus creating air currents throughout the kettle but since I can’t get the answer here, which doesn’t surprise me in the least, I’ll call Fred or Bob at the BBQ Guru tomorrow morning to get the details.

Thanks anyway…[/quote:2y5souvk]
What do you mean you can't get the answer here
The amount of info I have learned here is amazing
Maybe you should dig a little deeper [/quote:2y5souvk]

And deeper & deeper &..........[/quote:2y5souvk]

Geez, sorry I didn't get to you sooner. I somehow missed your first email and then when I saw it I tried to upload some pics but ephotohut wasn't working.
You want it above the grate so that when you are cooking with a direct setup some of the air will hit the coals and some will go under the grate coming up through the coals. When cooking indirect you want the coals on the opposite side. The air goes through and under the grate coming up through the lit coals. You can mount it almost anywhere.
