         Hi everyone first time poster but hopefully you can lend me your collective knowledge on some modifications I'm currently planing.

    So I decided to pick up a Binkmen Smoke n Pit, I knew they had some issues which I'm currently working on the modifications to correct. I ordered a BGE Gasket kit that I'm hoping will seal up the air leaks around the barrel and burner. I am also going to lower the chimney to the grill level to help with the smoke control.

         I am currently planing on building a baffle system that will hopefully help distribute heat evenly over the entire cooking surface. I was thinking about doing the the first 12 inches in a sheet metal then the rest in a cedar planking in hopes that it will offer some additional flavors. Do you think this would be a feasible system? Do you think the wood would be far enough away from the coals to not burn up?
