Thanks, no I'm not tearing it down, that's just my frustration anger speaking. I don't have the energy to tear it down anyway after building it for over 2 years, lol.. The one inch metal tube is for the IQ110 blower attachment. I built this pit with the full intention of using a blower only, no free drafting. So yes, without a blower I would have to crack the pit doors etc, but I like the blowers, used them for years and so I custom built this pit with that in mind and no air leaks with additional vents etc. I also used to have a Kamado #7 , ( sold it after re locating ) and that is the style I tried to replicate here, with little airflow, less fuel consumption and stable heat. Obviously I am falling short on that part. I have high heat and large fuel consumption, as the blower manifold I built into the pit area is really driving a big fire, but as mentioned, the transfer of heat is way off. So as Big Belly suggested, I will put a metal liner in the firebox and attempt to direct the heat more laterally to the cooking chamber. Will let you know how it goes.

plate only between fire box and cookiing chamber...look at the backwoods can have the smoke/some heat travel up the sides and then back down..but the plate will act as radient heat transfer..
