Thats a good idea with that tuning plate. I have the same smoker and I usually put a metal pan full of water there. I'll have to try wrapping the grate with foil. Great looking smoker full of great looking grub.
Does you smoker eat charcoal and wood as much as mine does?

it's a fuel hog 4 sure- i'm thinking about replacing the firebox w/ heavier steel as the lid & top seem thin & lose a lot of heat so therefore burn more fuel. as the "redneck rainbreak" goes, i'm working on the trademark now & will have to see if jeff will put it in the smoking meat store along w/ bass pro, cabela's, & billy jo bob ray's fireworks,cigarettes,&wholesale liquors.

i did a 9# deer roast and 10# of wings last weekend and i only used about 6# of lump. i have the ECB SnP which has about the thinnest metal of all the offsets. in the winter or windy days it is a fuel hog but days like today{79 and calm} it uses hardly any.

i also just use a large aluminum pan full of water next to the firebox and it acts as a tuning plate along with raising the charcoal pan . as far as a rain guard i use a 9' patio umbrella..

mine is the smoke-n-grill(only difference i think is i have a metat work tray & your's has wood?) for low-n-slow that cook used approx. 12lbs sam's club large coal briquettes & 1/2 bag mesquite chunks for 8-9 hr cook. i loaded it up to start then just added a handful here & there to keep @ 225-250. but i checked a lot to see the new grate thermo(gotta get a digital w/ probe).
