Flip a coin really - tunning plates you can adjust, convection plate you gotta drill holes to adjust but can't go back

If you drill too many or too large a hole you can go back with tuning plates to cover the holes for adjustment. You could experiment with cookie sheets or thin metel and when you get it right make it out of 1/4 inch.
