Default Is this a good idea?

I'm building a reverse flow smoker and while I was cutting out the firebox I had an idea. Maybe good, maybe bad. So I thought I'd post it here for some feedback from people more knowledgeable than me. I left a notch of the pipe attached when I cut it. About 6" wide by 11" long. It will be the same shape as the opening from the firebox touching the bottom of the cc on both sides. My thought is that it might help with evening out the temps on the firebox end. I may cut it back to around 6 inches depending on the feedback. I know the baffle plate will even out the temps too, but I got this idea and couldn't let it go. I'm trying to post a pic because I'm not sure if I described it well enough, but so far I haven't been able to. I'd love any advice before I go any further with it. Thanks in advance.

So that extends into the cook chamber as a baffle?

It would go under the baffle. I thought it might help keep the cc from having a hot spot by the fb. Or it might just move the hot spot. Or it might create a cold spot. Or do nothing at all. It was just a thought I had and wanted to run it by someone before I did anymore. Plus I'm not working right now and I'm trying to get as much done without spending money right now. I'm going to cut the doors and get the hinges and legs on, but don't have the steel to close the ends or anything else right now. So I have time to experiment.

I'd try that instead of reverse flow...... once. You might want to trim it back in a reverse flow configuration. At some point it just becomes too much to warm up.

I thought about trimming it back. Those are the markings, but my blade was dull at that point and I took a break. Just an idea I thought I'd bounce off the brethren.
