If this has been answered before, please pardon my post and kindly redirect me. I'm fairly certain that this has been discussed within one of the build threads, but I have not been able to locate it.
My fabricator asked me if I want my reverse flow plate welded in place. My initial thought was "yes" as this would seal the edges against thermal leakage along the path under the plate. But then I got to thinking about how I would be able to season and clean underneath the plate once it is permanently installed.
Maybe I'm just over thinking.
Your insights and sage wisdom will be greatly appreciated. What do you think?
