Default Stoker on a Stumps Platinum Clone?

I'm finally getting ready to retire the old spit. I decided to go with a stumps platinum (6?) clone (see pic). I ordered a Stoker from Rock's. Kenny recommended a 10cfm fan, he say's because they are insulated that's all they need. I was happy not to spend any xtra $. But now I'm wondering about it. Can any of you brethren verify that the 10 cfm fan is sufficient for a smoker this size. I have limited time to work on it so it's going to be a few more weeks before it's cooking. I'll post all the pics when it's completed.

I think you will be fine following the manufacturers recommendation.
Get your cooker done and give it a shot.
If you need to upgrade im sure that the manufacturer will be happy to upgrade your fan.
Please post more photos as the smoker is completed.

I have used a 10cfm guru fan on a Stump's Platinum 6 with no worries. The platinum series of smokers being reverse flow design draws more air through the cooker.

The Platinum smokers do not require the guru/stoker to maintain temperature control, that can be managed with the intake air valve. The advantage of the electronics & a fan is the quicker recovery after opening the cooking chamber.
