OK Joe Mod question

Discussion in 'Charcoal Smokers' started by jimmismoking, Jun 14, 2014.

  1. I was told by a few people to take a look at Horizon Smoker website to pick up a tuning plate to help control the heat flow. I sent them an email just to get some general information about the products they sell. They never answered back.

    I measured the inside of my smoker and it's 40 in from side to side. The tuning plate I think I need is http://www.horizonbbqsmokersstore.com/servlet/the-335/Convection-Plate--dsh--For/Detail

    Of course since the dimension are shorter I just wanted to be sure.

    Thanks
     
  2. I bought one from them and yes not good on reply emails I bought one for the highland model and it fits good my concern for my model is little diffrent tho but I believe it's suppose yo not be the full length of the cooking chamber.

    Very cool
     
  9. That is nice. I want that 45 degree angle though to help any of the drippings sitting at the front of the grill racks to slide down

    I built my own out of 1/4" plate. No holes in mine and with a few tuning plates it works prefectly.

    Here is my plate!
     
  12. Nice I had been thinking about that grab a few plates of metal and putting them in place. Do you have them welded in or do they just rest there?
     
  13. Oh nice
     
  14. I also have the OK Joe i ordered    horizon, they had to make mine because they were out , they said 3 weeks and it was delivered on time. mine has 45deg angle , but the angle is next to the fire box so it wont help with your drippings from the front of your grill.

    The plate with an angle next to fire box is welded in. I bolted it first but then figured since I have a welder just as well weld up the gaps. The other plates just lay in place.
