Nice smoker. I have an 85 and a couple of 55's. They're amazing little smokers. Set it and forget it especially if you have a heat deflector plate.

Thats a really cool setup. That heat deflector I bet works wonders too. Not only in keeping flames down, but in getting hot itself and helping the pit hold temp. Did you build this yourself or purchase somewhere?

The heat deflector helps maintain heat for sure but completely changes the flavor profile of the meat. Without a heat deflector you have drippings hitting the coals for more of a grilled flavor. With the heat deflector you get more of a true smoke flavor which for me results in a better tasting meat as far as bigger cuts go like brisket and pork butt.
