What fan size do I need?

Modified on Mon, 08 May 2023 at 02:50 PM

Our fans currently come in two sizes:


Pit Viper (medium) 10 CFM fan

Pit Bull (large) 25 CFM fan

The Pit Viper is a medium-sized fan that works well with kettles, bullet smokers, ceramic grills and more.


The Pit Bull is a large-sized fan that can be used with large cookers where you need more airflow to your fire to maintain temperature.


Both fans are equipped with aluminum nozzles with heat dissipaters and adjustable dampers. The built-in damper allows even more precise control over your cooks. The adjustable damper is especially helpful for people who have multiple cookers that might need more or less air than the other.


Fully open, you can run a large vertical smoker or extra-large ceramic grill. Throttle the damper down for kettles, bullets, and smaller ceramic grills. You can also close the damper completely to kill fire when you are finished cooking.


Two Fans

When you're getting serious and working on large cookers, you may want to upgrade to run two fans simultaneously to have oxygen flow over a larger fire. Our controls can power up to 2 fans using the Fan Splitter cord. If you purchase a control package with two fans, the splitter cord will be included.


Optional Fan Extension Cord

If you have a very long smoker or need more cord length to be able to keep your control on the opposite side of where your fan is, you may need more than the 6’ cord that is already on the fan. In this case, add on the 6' Fan Extension Cord to create a longer fan cord.
