    Wanting to add a heat plate. Small smoker and the meat will be pretty closer to the fire. I have a piece of 12 gauge steel I was going to use. I'm wondering if I should drill holes in it? Maybe small ones and not very many just to let some heat through? Not really sure which way to go.
  2. Try it with out the holes first if it dosent perform as you would like add the holes. There's a lot of trial and error in a custom smoker
