I just got one these a couple of weeks ago. Only thing I did was use high temp rtv between firebox halves and smoke chamber along with the exhaust stack. I put two aftermarket temp gauges grate level. When I went to season it with just a baffle plate, small fire. I noticed I couldn't get the exhaust side up to temp, 100* difference. My baffle slipped down and was to hot to put back up so I left it there. Within a minute the temps evened out a lot better, 25* difference. The firebox side was sitting at a nice 275*. I really can't explain why the difference with the baffle. I would think it would even out more.
