Buy it.... use it.... you will be happy... I’ve cooked over 350 degrees many times......loved every bit of it...... as stated is it any different from hitting tuning plates or the bottom of a general offset..... “my opinion” of course not.....

I have a straight flow with a 3/4 length temp baffle to keep the temps even. I have never had any trouble with burning drippings. Go with it and good luck.

No trouble at all with my Shirley. Scrap the plate every couple of cooks and you will be fine.

Well I threw my hat in the ring. I'm on the wait list. Evie Maes 24x60 cabinet style reverse flow. 6-8 weeks out.

Was also kinda looking for something "different". Shirley, Moberg, etc. I don't know anyone with an Evie Maes, and there's literally nothing on the internet about them. So....I'll give it a try. I figure if I don't like it I can sell it pretty easy due to the name on it.

Not much to add here except that I have never been disappointed in any of my cooks with a reverse flow design. The deflector plate helps keep things moist and evens out the chamber temps.
