I have a yoder whichita. Under the cooker, there is 1" (outside dimension) square pipe going into the base of the firebox. This is to provide just a bit of air into the firebox regardless of what the dampers are set at.
I want to get a guru and somehow create an attachment from the round guru adapter to the 1" square pipe. At that point I want to run another 1" square pipe through the length of the firebox with holes drilled in it to let the air from the guru out straight up into the fire (the end of the square pipe would be plugged up).
I want to do this so that I don't have to drill a big hole in my smoker door...
So my questions are this:
1. Do you think this is a stupid idea?
2. Any ideas on what/how to connect the 13/8" guru attachment to the 1" square pipe?
3. If anyone that has a whichita that can comment one the guru and placement, THAT WOULD BE AWESOME!
I don't know how to weld, but have a neighbor who can.
Any advice would be appreciated.
