All I need now is to install two new Temp gauges down by the cooking surface. Any more suggestion's welcome. CF :D

Looks great, CF! :D I am interested in seeing how well that tuning plate works. I've never seen one like that, but it seems logical!

Those mods should help you. That is a cool looking tuning plate and I'll be interested in hearing how it works out for you.

The new turning plate is working really good. Using an oven temp gauge. There is about 10° difference in temp from one end to the other in the cook chamber. I have not yet installed temp gauges in the cook chamber. CF :D

That sounds good CF. 10° difference from one end to the other isn't bad at all!

Bill aka " Chile Farmer"

Enjoyed the visit today and ordered the convection plate from Horizon. Will let you know the results and hopefully talk again down the road.

Take care and thanks again

Got a web address for that "Horizon" place? I've been pondering the purchase of one of those OJ smokers at Academy and that mod would be a plus. Thanks.
