Here is a picture of my smoker. From where the fire box attaches to the CC You can probably identify that the fire/smoke comes into the CC at the bottom. To be specific, the smoke/Fire comes in slight above the bottom grate. The problem that I am having is that what ever I put on the bottom 3 grates, closest to the side with the firebox has a tendency to burn rather than cook/smoke.
I did some reading and learned a little about bafflers. I was thinking of putting a piece of metal on an angle from the top of the opening where the smoke and fire come in (about a foot up on the right side of the CC and have it going down toward the bottom left corner of the CC, making it about an inch w(on each side) wider than the opening between the firebox and CC.
To be honest, as of last Thursday I wouldn't understand anything that I just wrote so my confidence level is low. I thought I would reach out to the more experienced folks out here for any direction.
Did i explain this well so that I made some sense or did I just ramble?
As always, any help is greatly appreciated and thanks for reading my thread.
