Barrel or Blower fan/damper
#1
Wanted to start a discussion as to which is better or more appropriate for which type of smoker.

As far as I know, there are two types of fan/damper designs being used;
1) barrel type case with a computer type fan like these
2) blower type case with fans like these

Please provide any pros/cons, other input and/or experiences.

No flames please (ha, did you see that, I made a pun)

First let me state, I have only used the barrel type with a computer fan in it and I have only smoked with a UDS.

I have configured my temp controller to do most of the air control via the damper before adding any fan input to stoke the fire. Therefore I believe the barrel type to be better as it has the least amount of air flow resistance through the case & fan as compared to the blower design.
