You're right, I can't see much air getting through the 1" hose on most air hoods.

I tried a Coleman air mattress inflator (like a small blow dryer) years ago, it worked but it tended to blow hot air and it smelled pretty bad like plastic. I eventually retired it to being a blower to help my charcoal grill heat up faster.
