If you have a Char-Griller Akorn Kamado smoker and don't want to spend $40 on a smoke deflector stone, you can do it for $4 with a cheap pizza pan.
What you need:
- 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).
Smoke dat BUTT!!!
