    I'm gonna put in a baffle/deflector from my firebox into my cooking chamber like many others have done. I've gone back thru and looked at several posts but am having a hard time coming up with any discussion on the gauge of steel/thickness used. Suggestions?

    something between 16 and 20 gauge should work just fine...

    These are pics of it when it was brand new. I've since taken off the top rack so that I could lower the exhaust down to the main cooking grate.

    I used 16g on my SNP. Worked like a charm.
