I have a Trail master L.E and have been going strong for about two months. I just became a member, and bought Jeff's Book last week. I have been reading a lot of modifications people have made to these smokers. I just want some other opinions as to whats going to distribute my heat and smoke more evenly? Convection Plate or make it Reverse? I burn all wood, and seem to be taking longer cook times than Jeff's book says to. Also would a burn basket help if i am burning wood instead of coals?
