Another option is to attach the injectors to the exhaust stack the same way
a temperature probe is attached. I.e. a hole is drilled in a stainless hose
clamp and it holds the injector against the stack.

The above method does not work very well and is prone to cracking at the
hole ... oh ... the hose clamps will tend to break also.

	A stainless steel elbow is welded on each exhaust
	stack. From these elbows a rather normal looking
	rubber hose goes to a T-piece which supplies the
	smoke oil. 
	After about 100 hrs these hoses look badly cooked.
	(not surprising)

	Is this the standard smoke system setup or is there
	a better solution?

	Is there any other hose (ex. teflon with SST braid)
	better suited for this high temperature environment?

	Thanks in advance,
