    I have an Akorn smoker and I’m keen to devise an adapter so that the Smobot will work with it. There are lots of different smokers out there and I’m sure there will be others trying to do the same thing. Here are some photos with measurements to get started.

    Hi Steve – thank you for taking the pictures! Indeed, adapting to the Akorn is of great interest.

    I like your thoughts on a ~tube adapter which would replace the Akorn adapter, making use of the factory o-ring. The tube would have mounting features to accept the smobot. I like that.. It would allow opportunity to use a tube that’s “taller” than the existing factor daisy, so that there could be clearance for the servo..

    Much appreciated – I’m going to noodle on this a little here.

    Kind regards,
    Eric

    It looks like they used a rivet to fasten the daisy wheel to the damper insert, huh?
