    I am building a cabinet smoker and would like to have a bbq guru adapter built in, the only problem is that I don't have one yet. Can someone let me know the diameter of the connection?

    pm me your email addy and i'll get you what you need, even though you used there instead of their... lol (gotta bust ya balls).

    there is a chamfer on the inside lip of the adapter to aid in the compression of the o-ring, i only say this incase you don't see it well in the pics i took.

    Thanks Drew. That is just what I need. I had to post this question on three forums to get it.

    I took my Guru into Home Depot and couldnt find anything off the shelf that would work.  I would be interested in seeing what you came up with.

    I ended up getting a call back from bbq guru today and she confirmed what I already found out from Jerseydrew. The outside diameter of the nose is 1.209" and the inside diameter of the adapter is 1.219" and needs to be at least 0.60" deep.

    I have some pics of how I set mine up that I will get uploaded tonight and post here.

    I managed to get a couple pics of my intakes up on photo bucket today. You can see the 2" female fitting on the left that will have a sliding damper or a round cover that will be on a threaded rod and spin out. The one on the right is for the guru. I made it out of a piece of 1" pipe with the inside turned to 1.219". I will also be machining a kill plug for it too.
