- Cheap 16" pizza pan
- Sharpie or other marking device
- Tin Snips
Take the pizza pan and set it on the notches in the bottom of the smoker.
Mark just inside the notches with a marker.
Cut the marks about 1" in towards the middle.Bend the larger sections inward and flatten the smaller sections
Place the finished smoke deflector between the notches in the smoker.
Set a foil pan on top and fill it with water. I use catering trays from Costco($6 for 20 of them).

A while ago I bought a Pelican Xbox 360 controller from Walmart for $29.99. I don't have a 360 but wanted to use the controller on my pc. I got it, downloaded MS's xbox 360 drivers and plugged it in. It would not work with the Micrsoft drivers. The cable infact doesn't even have the USB stamp on it.
I quickly logged onto pelican's website and tried to find a driver. I could not find one and put a ticket in with support. They told me that this controller was not pc compatible. I thought this was bullshit since it works with a 360 and a MS controller will work with the pc.
Since I got this controller to use only on my pc(with intentions of using as a second xbox controller when I finally got one), this was not acceptable. I searched the internet and found a 3rd party written xbox 360 controller driver called the XBCD. I tried just installing this driver and it still wouldn't work. Windows XP would not allow me to install this driver with this device.
After tinkering around using a utility from Microsoft called USBview I found the problem. The Pelican controller does not have a VID or PID linked to it. Every usb device has a VID(vendorID) and PID(productID) that .inf files use to associate a driver to a product. Using the USBview tool, I noticed that the VID and PID for the Pelican PL-3601 came up as 0000. I then opened up the .inf file c:\windows\inf\xbcd.inf that the 3rd party XBCD driver uses to associate itself with usb devices. Inside the file I found a line to associate the driver for the 360 controller to the XBCD driver.
%XBCD_360.DeviceDesc% =Install, USB\VID_045E&PID_028E ; Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller
I then copied that line and changed the VID from 045E to 0000 and PID to 0000 also.
I now unplugged the device and plugged it back in. It quickly popped up as "XBCD Xbox 360 Controller" and let me install the device automatically. The device worked great. I use it all the time for games on my PC now.
Here are the steps you should do to replicate my success.
- Download and install XBCD 1.07 from http://www.redcl0ud.com/xbcd.html.
- Download and install my modified driver and inf.
- Extract the rar to a temp folder.
- Run install.bat to copy files to the correct folders.
- Plug in your controller and let windows automatically install the software.
