Default 5 Hours in....

5 hours in on the first cook with the baffle, and all is well. The most noticeable effect so far has been temperature control. It has been a LOT more stable and easier to control. And it is a very windy day here today ( 17 mph winds) I am glad I got this addition to my smoker.

I called Horizon about the age of mine. They were not certain but think it was around 22 years old. Yours seems to be putting out some good que! The cook looks awesome...

OK, I looked at the dimensions of the New Horizon plates on their website and and made a wooden mock-up of the standard one. It appears to fit my Klose 20x48, so I went ahead and ordered it. I will test it when it arrives without, with, and with plus a 1"-2" gap. Results to be posted here.

When I built my stick burner, I wanted to option of a traditional offset or a reverse flow. So, I had my metal shop cut some tuning plates on their shear - the shear cuts are smooth an let me adjust them with no gap, or space them at increasing widths across the smoker. Mine were about 17" deep and I had a variety of widths cut. With the welded in diverter plate at the firebox it works well and downsizing a little might fit you needs.

That's a good idea!

Hey Dan I have the same offset. Fixing to make my own plate. Any hoo, put your grill grate in your fire box as if you are going to grill something and stick a pan of water on it. You get some nice water smoking from it.

Not original, in fact I found the idea on this forum looking at other stick burner builds & designs. I don't want to clutter up your post but let me know if a pic or two would help. I'm actually thinking of trying to pick up a 1/4" OJ Longhorn doing this mod and maybe moving the exhaust stack to make it a reverse flow (for my oldest son; graduating vet school in May & movin out on his own).
