that sounds like how i'd like to do it mick!

i'm now embarking on a home grown pellet project also. I'm considering not having the sloped grease trap/heat sink like the traegers etc and just having a full rack of grill grates to disperse the heat, with a removable wire cooking rack that sits a few inches above the grill grates for indirect cooking. think this would work??

I'd make it both ways so you can low and slow over the entire surface.
So, A flame diffuser that always stays there and a drip/baffle tray that is removable.
Pulled pork and briskest drip a heap of fat.
If trees screamed when we cut them down, We wouldn't. If they screamed all the time we would.

Yes. I'd think about the gunge dripping into the bottom of the Pellet Grill, The fat will combine with the dust and be a beach to remove.......and you have live fire in there, if the dust/fat catches it'll get ugly real fast!.....That's why these things are designed to get the grease OUT of the BBQ (gassers should be designed like that as well!).
