Ky here too!
Nice looking rig. As others have stated, i think a reverse flow with a heavy duty heat plate would solve all your problems with very little time and cost. I'm likin that setup man, that's cool.

Welcome to SMF! Nice looking smoker, man! I don't know much about reverse flow, but there will be plenty of help here for you. Can't tell from your pics, but do you already have a baffle of some kind at the opening of the smoke chamber? If not, that would help with the heat issue.

Great looking smoker Allan..... Try a steel plate with 1inch hole in it to displace the heat and smoke... I have seen some pics before of barrel smokers with plate between the inlet pipe and grill racks.  It was explained that this plate more evenly distributed the heat and smoke.... Great work,,, keep on smoking
