Drive Blower

The Drive Blower offered in our online shop is a variable speed, 20CFM blower. The product is designed to allow easy mounting onto many smokers using the included adapters plates:

Some grill or smoker models will require a nozzle adapter or a ball valve adapter. These adapters are sold separately on our store.

This variable speed blower can be powered by FireBoard’s internal battery or with 12V, acquired from the FireBoard 2 Drive’s USB-C charger or via the 12V input on the Drive Fan Cable needed for fan operations with the FireBoard 2 or first generation FireBoard.

Measure the vent on your grill/smoker to determine if the FireBoard Drive Blower will fit. You may need one of the included adapter plates or the nozzle or ball valve adapter.

Adapter Plates

Depending on your grill or smoker vent size, the Drive Blower may attach without an adapter. When ordered from our shop, the Drive Blower comes with two adapter plates:

To attach an adapter plate:

  1. Determine which size plate is the best fit for your grill or smoker.
  2. Loosen the thumb screws on either side of the blower.
  3. Slide the adapter rails up slightly. Do not slide them completely off of the blower.
  4. Apply gentle pressure to the rails, drawing them slightly towards each other.
  5. Slide the adapter plate over the rails and rest on the opening of the blower. Note that the notches in the adapter plate should be under the right angle portion of the rails.
  6. Slide the prongs back down. The plate should now be held by the rails.
  7. Tighten the thumb screws.

FireBoard Blower Compatibility

This table is to help you determine if the FireBoard Blower, either with an adapter plate or separate adapter, is compatible with your style of cooker. There are so many styles of cookers on the market that it is impossible for us to have a comprehensive list.

The best way to determine compatibility is to measure the vent on your cooker and compare it to the adapter plate or adapter specifications.
