  4. I would imagine if you have the top vent closed you wont get any air flow through the grill so no smoke out of the top No air flow the grill will go out unless you have an air leak. If you get it smoking good with the top open then close it you should see where the leaks are.
  5. Ribs look great i did some ribs on a rack once and the only slight problem was the back rack cook more than the front My joe is hotter in the back. Glad to see you had the pit masters treats on picture 2 and gone in three
  6. Welcome to the forum lot s of good food and advice here
  7. John just had a thought you said this was for the JR i wonder if those tabs would keep the plate from sitting directly on the firebox ring and leave a1/4 inch gap or so around the plate. Don't know why it would be needed but just a thought.
  8. there will be a difference the deflector plates get heated by the charcoal and radiates it in to the grill so it will run hotter, it's purpose is to block the direct heat from the fire to the meat. The dome thermometer reads the air in the dome plus what comes around the deflector plates. If your grate reads that high and the dome thermometer is accurate check the position of the grate probe. Make sure its not overhanging the deflector plates and getting direct heat from the fire also make sure if you have 2 plates they are together with no gap and the probe isnt over the gap if you have one.
