Help with modding a MES 40" 20070408 - Page 2

post #21 of 24

Where exactly do you put the 12x12 ceramic tile?

 

On top of the wood chip housing? Directly on top of the heating element?

 

And if I never use the chip loader, can I do it like DaveOmak and tear it out completely? If I did, then wouldn't I have to put the tile directly on the element?

 

Just trying to figure it out - there are some severe temperature gradients in my MES 40. Thanks!

Keith, morning....  I'm thinking I need a "tent" type heat deflector over the element.....  Noticed on my batch of ribs, a temp difference of about 20 degrees from left to right....  Maybe a curved piece like a "quonset hut"....  Still thinking about this mod.... Hopefully the air inlet will distribute the heat to the left....

That sounds nice...Sounds like we're looking for a concave ceramic tile, preferably self levitating so we don't have to add another shelf over the element.

Anyone seen "sky hooks" for a smoker ?? LOL 

 

I was thinking sheet steel..... maybe 26 gauge or so... bent in a "U" over the element.... with the tunnel left-right orientation...  Dave
