Hello there! And welcome.

I have a snp that I really enjoy cooking on now that I've modified it some.

For the heat deflector, I bought two replacement charcoal grates that are supposed to go in the firebox (or in the bottom of the cooking chamber).

What I do is wrap them in aluminum foil and place them sideways in the cooking chamber, right up next to the firebox opening. There's a small gap left that I make an aluminum foil shield to block the remainder of the opening.

You will have to pound down one cross piece at one end of the grate to get it to fit over the cooking grate hooks.

Once those are in place, the heat and smoke are forced to travel a ways before they come back up to the cooking grate level.

This really evens out the temps in the cooker and makes it super nice to use.

I hope this helps.
