Sunterra Outdoor BBQ Smoker Baffle Plates (tuning plates) simply help distribute the hot air evenly from the firebox through the BBQ Smoker to balance the cooking temperature.
The hot air and smoke travel below the baffle (tuning plates), and as a result, forced toward the left side chamber smokestack. The baffle plate is HD plasma cut and designed with air flow rate calculations resulting in an ideal surface to surface chamber temperature. A more balanced supply of heat will decrease fuel consumption and produce excellent smoke flavor and results.
To install, simply remove the charcoal grate, and lay the baffle plates on top of the charcoal grate rails. The baffle plate is a two piece configuration that is easily positioned and placed into the chamber. When ordering with one of our smokers, we’ll match the baffle plate with the model number purchased. If buying separately, please call to place your order.
