CRG, that heat deflector geometry on the bottom rack with the fan beneath is just about the same as what I've been doing with a foil covered brick along the back edge on the same rack.  I also put a second foil covered brick in the front of the rack and lean it to the front edge of the rack.  With the fan it seems to create a sort of chimney for the heat moving up in the center.  I also put a large square foil covered paving stone on the top rack. Doing that on the 2nd and 3rd racks up from the bottom I can't detect much of a gradient front to back within the rack dimensions.  It works great for me.
I like animals, they taste good!

What I thought was going to be a quick smoke due to the early

high IT, turned out to be a marathon. The first butt came off at 24 1/2 hrs.



Second Butt took 25 1/2 hrs.



1st Brisket took 28 1/2 hrs!



2nd Brisket is getting close.

That was part of the problem. I turned it down to 200 and slept too long.
