Baffle plate height

Post by ntjones » November 30th, 2019, 12:01 am

If I put my baffle plate 2.5 inches below my cook grate will that be enough space? That’s about as much as I can get. I just hope that will work.

It should work out fine. You may get a little hot on the fire box end. If that is all you could get it is what it is. In my odd ball smoker my grates are only 1" off the floor and the fire is below 1" of steel.

Ok thanks. I’ll go with it.
