Question about temp control
SmokingMeatForums.com Top Picks
When you brought the exhaust down to grate level, that should help keep the heat from running straight out the pipe. However, the heat may still be "rushing" so to speak.
Do you have a heat diverter plate and tuning plates installed? That can help a lot.
For the lid seal, my son used the sealing tape made for a big green egg lid. It's pricey, but it's held up very well and sealed the lid on his pretty good.
The diverter and tuning plates will help a lot. I wish I had a picture here to show how we did it on my son's pit.
The plate you're talking about will work, but you'll need quite a few holes of different sizes, not just a few here and there.
Here is a link to a good explanation of how to install. http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/236402/tuning-plates
Good luck, Joe
