Awesome mod!! I'm sure it helped with managing the heat in the smoke chamber even more, keeping it more concentrated in the fire box.

Did you have to make any adjustments to the lid hinges to accommodate the thickness of the griddle? (If I missed your explanation earlier, sorry...)

Oh, it's night and day as far as temperature is concerned. I always had trouble maintaining any kind of temps. and now it's easy! As far as the hinges are concerned, I had to replace them, but the originals aren't very good anyhow. So, I replaced them with some ready made hinges of brass and steel (only 5 bucks a pair!) much better!
