Yes I got the built-in adjustable convection plate and it is awesome! I'm well aware of how heat moves through horizontal offsets without any baffling in them and I wouldn't be satisfied with one of those either and I certainly wouldn't accept it, that's why when I was ready to drop some change on a nice smoker I was 110% sure I wanted that plate. We weren't originally talking about price in this thread. Dave made a general statement about it being very difficult to get even temps in any smoker and I disagreed with that because I've seen many smokers (including my own) that are quite easy to get even temps in.
Let me refresh your memory as to exactly what you said in reply to Dave:
"Rotating items and pulling some before others is the name of poor equipment and/or inexperience."
Let's go further down the rabbit hole. You're basically saying that your Horizon offset is a poor piece of equipment to start with, but the convection plate changes everything. That's the extension of your "logic" and it's why I (and I believe Dave) took issue with what you said.
I'd wager that MOST of the people on this board own smokers that have variances in heat distribution and I have to disagree with your conclusion that all of us either have poor equipment or are inexperienced.
