Default New Mod - The "LeeBo Mod"

Ok, I haven't done the mod yet, but am thinking about it. Just wanted to go ahead and claim the name in case it works. What do ya'll think about this.....

I read some posts about using tin-foil on a rack to make a deflector of sorts. Heck of an idea. I got to thinking.....

What about buy two extra racks, and a bag of ceramic briquettes? Then place the briquetts between the two racks and wire them together.

This would result in a movable although perrmanent deflector.

Any thoughts?

ps. Yes, this is "the" LeeBo of the original five that started the original yahoo group years ago. Wow! Phil's done a great job with this site. I haven't been year in a long time.

I'm smoking on an Old School 'dera with door gasket, basket, and baffle. I have barely smoked in the last year at all. I cleaned up & painted my Old School ' dera today and am smoking ribs, pork loin, klabasee (sp), and bologne on Sunday.

Lee, or Leebo

I need to just come out and say, the Heat Shield was invented by Big Al in Parker CO on the Bandera Brethren Yahoo group.

He used a piece of aluminum sheeting, cut to 15.5" by 15.5" with a "V" cut out of one side.

Phil then did this as well with a half circle.

I ordered 6 extra grill racks and convered one 3/4 with aluminum foil.

I took the 2 minute alternative, but BigAl already created the real Heat Shield. Awesome way to conserve fuel and retain heat.

So the Leebo mod (with the ceramic tiles) is indeed a great idear. We can call it a Mod to BigAl's mod.

Yes, helps with fuel consumption. Also allows you to to divide into two separate cooking chambers where you could do beans or something requiring a lower cooking temp. It can also be used as a holding area if you wanted.

I think Big Al has even cooked a brisket above the heat shield.

Could do the same thing with 1 rack and some precut fire brick. No need to wire together, and you use only one rack.
N.B. 'Dera (modified), gone to another place (RIP), ECCG (el cheapo charcoal grill), an Alveron propane, and wood hog cooker, bullitt type smokers, a GM Jim Bowie, a turkey fryer, and a pretty well stocked kitchen.
