Has anyone found a heat diffuser that fits the Lexington? I mainly use as a smoker, and I’ve noticed that anything I cook for longer than 2-3 hours (at 225-250°) burns on the bottom in the area over the firepot. I’m guessing this is because Pit Boss does not have a heat diffuser to allow for searing. I would like to add one, but every one I’ve found have all been much too large to fit the Lexington.

Alternatively, Is there a way to raise the grates at all?

I have used temp probes to make sure that my temps are correct.

Hi Jyaco,
I used a piece of 3/16 plate about 8x8. I used 2ea 1/4-20 screws to suspend it under the grate and above the burn pot. It is still working.

Thanks. I was thinking something like that was my best option, just wanted to know if it would actually work. Appreciate the feedback!

You can go to smokeslikeaboss.com and look at the 4 window flame tamer, but you have to specify the" Shorty" model. It might be what you are looking for. I have one and it makes the temps inside the smoker much more even all over.
