Need some input for installing BBQ-Guru air inducer sleeve
 
Hopefully somebody out there has installed a BBQ-Guru fan with the air inducer tube and can answer a couple of questions:

I have a CharGriller with a side fire box and just bought a CyberQ kit, which includes an air-inducer tube that connects to a fan that controls airflow for the firebox. I want to make sure that I install it in the optimal way and minimize ash disturbance.

1. Should I install the tube at the end of the firebox with the damper on it, or at the other end (the opening to the smoking chamber)? I could make cases for either side and want to know if it makes a difference.

2. BBQ-Guru suggests that the tube be installed 2" below the firebox's fire plate. I am wondering if that will cause some kind of problem for the ash deposits underneath the fire-grate. I mean, won't the external fan's exhaust into the firebox kick up a lot of ash, and maybe transport that ash into the smoking chamber?

If anybody has any insight, please let me know - I want to get this right the first time!

You do not wat the fan in the smoking chamber.. It is designed to provide air to the hot coals to regulate temperature.

Although I do not have a CharGiller, you can slightly raise the charcoal grate to allow the air between the ash pan and the coals.
