Hope this helps, I went back out and tried to get a better picture, but with the rails in there now, you can barely see the edge of the deflector plate!
Gotcha. That makes perfect sense. This smoker is coming along nicely. Once it's finished, you gotta do a big cook for us with all that meat in your freezer!
