So if I make a metal plate, or use some of the natural stone tiles, how big should I make the disc or should it be another shape? What is the best distance to mount the deflector above the bottom of the fire bowl? Should I hang it from the top or make some feet that sit in the coals? There are lots of ways to do this.

I am a big-time tinkerer and the occasional inventor so this stuff is fun for me. Unfortunately, I don't have much experience with egg smokers so I am going to have to rely on you guys for some advice.
