baffle plate question

  1. small wood smokehouse using a propane burner and a cast iron skillet with chips.  Seems to maintain pretty consistent temps ranging from 160-220.  Do need a baffle plate for safety and more even smoke distribution?

    If you think the heat is not uniform, you could try it.....   Remember, installing a baffle plate will concentrate the heat below it.....    If the wood in the smoker get to "flash point" your smoker could go up in smoke.....   

  3. Thank you! the heat seems pretty even.  I appreciate the response
