Setting the Adjustable Dampers

4 CFM Blower:

Keep your adjustable damper full open for cooking at any temperature other than cold smoking and drying jerky or peppers. If you are using your Guru for temperatures such as 130° F or 145° for example, then you should throttle the damper down about half way. Close the damper completely to extinguish fire after cooking is complete.

10 CFM & 25 CFM Blowers:

With these larger blowers, natural draft may effect cooking temperatures on the blower's off cycle. Testing on different settings is recommended. As a general rule, it is best to keep the damper full open on medium/large to large bbq cookers such as offsets and extra large ceramic grills. Throttle the damper 1/2 way down for small to medium cookers such as medium and large ceramic grills, bullet smokers, kettles and small barrel pits. Close the damper completely to extinguish fire after cooking is complete.
