Need help with some offset modifications!

  1. Need some help here SMF family,

    I recently bought a Brinkman trailmaster le. I have added temp gauges at grate level, made a convection plate (which runs 3/4 length of cooking chamber and holes increase in size.) also sealed all holes and joints when assembling.
    While using I have noticed 20deg. Temp difference side to side, with the hotter end opposite the firebox. Do I need to make a new plate that runs length of grill?
    I did not bring stack down to grate level, would this help? I do use a small foil loaf pan with water in it and place it on grates next to fire box, and I have made a charcoal basket.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated, out of ideas here!

    Have you tried it without the water pan?      
  3. Raptor,
    No have not tried without the water pan. Kinda thought you had to have a water pan in there? Was thinking about moving water pan more towards stack (under cooking grates).
