Thanks guys!

6 hour burn at 325 to season the racks and cure the paint.

It's now reverse flow with stable temps from side to side within 5 degrees with no hot spots. I ended up with double the rack space. I could do at least 10 butts on it now. The added 18x36 stainless steel shelf is nice too. Everything was done in 1/4 inch steel. I would say I have some where around $800 in the upgrades.

I can't wait 'til the weekend to toss something in it.

The only downside I have found is that you can't sear a steak. The hottest mine gets is about 400 degrees on a good day. Other than that everything else turns out great and the wood pellets make everything taste great!
You can sear, you just need some cast iron grates/griddle/something in the traeger and let it heat up for a while. The grates in a Traeger are porcelain, and don't retain heat well when you put meat on them. The heat transfers to the meat quickly, and to sear you need heat to transfer to the meat while also being retained in what you're placing the meat on. Cast iron does this much better.

Try putting a cast iron pan right over your firebox with the T on high for 20-30 minutes, then put your steak on the pan. It'll sear, promise.

My cheap chargriller smoker is a pain to hold temperature, so I built a cheap 2 stage temperature controller. Total cost was around $80. Doing the test run today, and it's working awesome - holding within 3 degrees. I still need to get some longer wires and a mount built.
