@YEMTrey there was atleast 2" because I left the thermometer in and it wasn't hitting. I would say best bet would be to find a 2-3" drip pan to sit on the plate setter and put the grate on top of that. If you could find the perfect v rack it could work but it'll be tough. I posted pics of the KJ deflector in it on another thread and its much better. I can put a small 1" notch in each of the existing so the KJ deflector drops to felt level and it should be about perfect.
So on drink 2 tonight I looked over at her and said guess what comes out on Nov. 1st. She guessed something first that I now forget but her 2nd guess was the mini max. Then I gave her a partial retarded look like how did she remember that and she immediately asked if I had pre-ordered one. Said nope but I'm getting one and she didnt hit me. Woohoo!
