Ok eggheads, i got my Weber and burner the other day. I was thinking about the problems associated with bottom heat buffer and transfer to the sides and over the top. My dad has a welding shop and i can fabricate whatever i like, so i came up with this, please tell me your thoughts. Take a 10-12" pipe and weld it or cut it to fit the base of the burner, come up 6-8 inches with some rebar, then add a steel plate cap. So your heat will rise up the pipe , hit the plate and be forced to the sides. I would still add a shelf for the stone to rest on ( not in drawing ) . What do you think? Will it help? Is it worth doing?
As far as the lid goes, i was thinking a steel or aluminum plate. From the bottom of the lid, how high do you recommend mounting it? 3-4 inches ok?
Also, i ordered the Bayou classic sp10, i now see it comes with a 10lb regulator, is this enough power? I know some guys went with the 20lb.
