Anyone use one of these or similar?
Can you explain what this is for please?


I thought it was to control heat from firebox to main chamber but on the first smoke I couldn't get the temp above 220 with this in place.
Thanks in advance for any help.

esselle, the baffle between the firebox and cooking chamber and the exhaust should be left wide open during a cook if the cooker is set up properly. You should always try to control your temps with your intakes. I have seen some folks close the firebox to cooking chamber damper while they are tending the meat, this helps clear the smoke in the chamber. I hope this helps. Smile
