The one I am working on should end up about 2 to 3 inch's above. And umm I'm not sure on the JB Weld. How thick is you meat chamber and do you have a drill?

I don't think you really want the RF plate too close to the cooking surface.  The radiant heat off the plate may cook the meat to fast or unevenly.

I'm in the middle of a build myself; Luckily I have a friend with a Lang to refer to. But his RF plate is about 2"  from the cookin surface. Not sure I like that idea, But it is a Lang afterall....(personaly) I'm going with atleast 4" ! Can't wait to see your build....
