I had to drop this pic in here to show just how much hotter that right hand corner in the MES is. I'm goin to experiment more with the baffle idea. I had a small baffle in place but it fell down at the beginning of the smoke so I just left it off. Now I have a before picture to go by. Sorry for the blurry pic but as you can see... the chicken thigh on the right rear had a considerable amount of heat compared to the rest. These were in the smoker untouched on the second rack up for about 3.5 hours.
