I’d check with MAK, but seems I’ve seen this question before and the answer was DON’T DO IT!

I think the issue was the potential for damage with the intense unbuffered direct heat slamming in to the Funnel Flame Zone drip pan. I think you risk warping it.

I stand firmly by my original opinion... if you’re not gonna use it as a grill, you are not gonna experience a 100% performance or food improvement vs what you are currently cooking on. If it’s all about low n slow and roasting/baking... then what you have is perfect, not to mention you are already happy with it.

Have you checked out the Memphis Grill owners FB page lately? The grass is not always greener on the other side...lol. There have been a fair number of complaints and gripes recently (mainly cost vs performance/reliability), with more than one owner flat out saying they regret their purchase.

Wow....just perused through a few posts on the Memphis page. Glad I didn’t buy one.

only issue I have had with my Memphis is when I drowned the ignitor rod and shorted it out. Memphis promptly diagnosed the issue over the phone and I had a new rod within a couple of days.

If you are not going to use it for grilling, I honestly wouldnt get it if I were you as you will likely not see a huge difference in low and slow cooking with what you have......UNLESS you just WANT it.

My Yoder cooked very well...yeah, the rust issues irritated me to no end, but how the food turned out, it was great....but for some reason I kept looking at the Memphis units and I just WANTED one! When I made a random call to check the price, I was honestly shocked at the price they quoted me...so I bought a Pro on the spot (and then called back 5 minutes later and changed the order to the Elite). It was kind of an impulse buy, but all in all, I am happy I did it...I grill and reverse sear 5x more than I smoke butts, brisket, ribs, etc so for me, it works out well. Lately I have been turning out bbq that is certainly the equal of the Yoder cooked food as well. The Memphis cooking app isnt as good as GMG's or Mak (being able to program cooks), but it works fine
