Ok, please don't laugh. We just replaced our venerable Brinkmann Smoke'n'Pit (over 20 years of year-round smoking didn't do the firebox any good) with an Oklahoma Joe Longhorn. That comes with a reverse flow system; while getting mods to finish it off (e.g., tape for the firebox and the smoker doors, latches, etc.) on a WTH whim I got a horizontal baffle plate for it. I was thinking of using the reverse flow for things like brisket, and the baffle plate for faster stuff like salmon--still getting rid of (most of) the hotspot by the firebox. But once I put it all together, I realized both systems can be in place at the same time, and I'm thinking it may not be a bad idea. The baffle plate should direct the heat & smoke across the length of the smoker, more evenly heating the reverse flow plates. Is this a worthwhile idea, or am I all wet?
