Default Convection plate question

I have a sheet of metal that I use for a baffle/convection plate for my Char-griller Smokin Pro w/ side firebox. I was going to drill holes in it for a convection plate but was wondering if I should just cut it into plates for tuning plates instead? What does the Brethren think would work best?

cut to use as tuning plates. much easier than drilling and filling in holes. all of these type of mods on the cg's that i have seen have been plates.

I used the Charcoal pan in mine as a baffle use the CI grates that came in the FB to support it slide it up to the FB opening perfect fit. I then drilled 12 holes 3 rows of four starting 4" out from the FB side smallest hole is 1/4" largest hole Skipping 2 drill sizes as you progress down the legnth 1/2" at the stack side. 1 row runs down the center line and the other 2 rows are 5" off center line. Doing this mod I now run even everywhere on the cook surface end to end and front to back.

Not the best pic but you can see how even the smoke is rising If you look close you can see a few of the holes.
