Awesome, must-have product. Should be included standard with Yoder.
There's no doubting that this is an excellent product. It makes the Yoder so much more functional in a lot of respects, but particularly for a reverse searing. The only question I have is why this isn't the plate included with the Yoder as a standard feature. Given the price point of the Yoder, seems as if this is the plate that should be included rather than making the consumer pay additional for it after the fact. Because once you receive this plate, you'll never use the plate from your original Yoder purchase. The plate itself seems a little expensive, but there's absolutely no doubting the qualify, nor is there any doubting the need for this product. I love it that it can handle whatever temperature the Yoder dishes to it. All things considered, great product, but a real head-scratcher as to why it isn't included as a base Yoder feature.

Great addition to the ys640
The product is awesome and a must have for owners of the ys640. It’s so nice not having to switch out the solid diffuser plate back and forth between smoking and grilling. My only complaint is why Yoder Smokers doesn’t just sell the smoker with this instead of the much less useful solid piece. The price point is also really high in my opinion, however, it still didn’t stop me from purchasing it as I wanted the convenience.

Buy it, you'll love it.
An excellent addition to our 480 !!! It's not cheap, but like the rest of the products from this company, well worth the money. It makes the changeover from smoking to grilling so much easier. Very happy with my purchase.

A must have for an easy transition
Wonderful product to unlock the full potential of switching cooking styles. Hard to believe this product isn't listed as an option verses receiving the standard diffuser that will not be used. Free shipping was a plus as well.

Nice diffuser
Very nice to be able to just remove the door of the diffuser when you want direct heat. I wouldn't have a 640 without one. Very well made.

Direct Cooking Made Much Easier
Just purchased this defuser plate, and tried it out on some burgers. Works excellent, but it is somewhat pricy. If you can get past the price, it really makes direct cooking much easier than lifting the very heavy, awkward original plate in and out.

Awesome product. Easy to switch from direct and indirect cooking.
This should be an option on the initial purchase of a ys640. Greatly improves the ease of cleaning the unit.

EXCELLENT UPGRADE FOR THE YS640
Yoder has an excellent upgraded Heat Diffuser that includes an access door for to gain access to the pellet burn pot for easy clean out. The diffuser is made out of heavy gauge steel and is reinforced so warping will not be an issued. If you use your smoker for direct grilling you will really appreciate being able to quickly remove the heat diffuser access door for direct grilling setup with your grill grates. Yoder has done it again with an a great new design.

If you are serious about BBQ I highly recommend and the cost is extremely fair for a cooker of this caliber.
New to pellet smoking I have been pleasantly surprised how easy the YS640 is to use and the savory taste of the finished product. So far have done ribs and brisket and the end result has been excellent......

I use my YS640 to grill more than low and slow, and often left the deflector out of the grill. I really enjoy the open fire aspect for grilling- takes pellet grilling to a whole new level.
Superb. The open fire grilling just became a much easier option.

Searing with the pellet cooker now perfected.
The solution to searing. Even with grill grates it is difficult to achieve high searing temperatures, particularly following a cook using the diffuser plate. Frankly I have had very unsatisfactory results without the plate and it is impossible to safely remove it while hot. Switching to grill grates means the recommended temperature maximum (with diffuser in) is 400F as higher temps will warp the diffuser plate (more rapidly than it does at lower temps.) I am assuming you all know the trick with the steel rod to keep the plate straight. Anyway with this device I tried the reverse sear. 275 with this device in and the steaks on the right side till about 110 internal. I took the access door out, installed grill grates and cranked the temp to the max (600). At he grates I measured 660 with an IR gauge. I like to use the flat side of the grates to get the most searing and WOW... nice even brown.
