Would anyone in the US be willing to send me a billows damper?

Postage to the UK is $40 from Thermoworks and there are no plans to sell here.


I would of course cover all costs.

pm sent, happy to help if still in need

I mounted billows by simply drilling a 1.25” hole in the stock slider. If I don’t want to use billows, I can cover the hole with high-temp tape or a magnet.


Haven't had time to test it out yet but I’ll do so this weekend and report back.

Also - ThermoWorks now sells a plastic damper that you put over top of the fan and you can reduce the cfm, which is probably necessary for the Akorn since the Billows seems like it was built for bigger cookers that need more air.


you can also see my Nomex gasket and a little of my copper rtv.   





Wow - that's actually a fantastic idea!  Can I ask of you a favor?  Can you post a photo of what the 1.25" hole looks like in your Akorn damper plate?  Did you just use a regular drill bit?
