Default Tuning Plates. Getting Even(ish) Temps on an Offset

Just FYI for any Newbs - you just gotta experiment with gaps and amount of plates.

Default Pit temps

Hi All Don't know IF this helps or matters.
I also had a problem with temps across the cooking grates. I gave up trying to get even temps, and now I like it that way, cause I have 3 cooking zones.
Hot n Fast by the firebox, medium in the middle, and Low n Slooooow at the far end.
Thanks DanB

Yep, you do have to experiment. I've actually got two plate settings. One for small amounts of meat, Like two or three briskets and another for large amounts of meat, like 22 or so butts, or a combination there of..

Some of that depends on the size of the pit and also how big of a fire you build. Small clean fires with a nice bed of coals works best. Also, generally butting the first plate against the baffle is the best approach..

I have 5 plates just like in the video. I keep the first 3 tight,90% of the time and adjust the last two. I can keep my brinkmann within 10* end to end. Once the fire has settled in and you have your "sweet spot",adjust and they hold.
