    Craigslist strikes again!! SJS with a bag of briquettes! $10.00!! Please don't tell the fiancée she already thinks I'm crazy! Picked it up never assembled. They used the lid upside down with 6 briquettes to roast marshmallows, once! I got it home assembled in 5 minutes. I'll get the nipples and valves a bit later and be done this evening!

    Hang in there! You'll get a good deal! This was the first one I've seen since last summer. They'll start popping out of the wood works with summer ending!

    Yea I figured Id start seeing some start popping up around now or near the summers end...  but it never fails.. If I need a SJS or SJG.. cant find one,.. buy one at cost at store, then BAM,..... next day one pops up on CL.. lol.. I should just buy them when I see them.. stock up lol.

    Last night I went and installed the balls valves, and she's all ready to go! All total $30.00. I already had the pot so if we add that in, $60. Not bad for one bad ass smoker!

    again good job...hope there is room in the freezer for double the amount of the food cooked now :p

    . Im interested in seeing them going at the same time.. identical set ups, and see a comparison if any bewteen the two with temps and fuel consumption. etc. Also a good time to start doing multiple cooks on the greatness that the mini is, but differents meats at the same time. Some fatties on one, spatches on the other.. etc

    . Be a fun and a "worthy experiment" if you need to convince the lady of WHY you are cooking on two different grills but that are THE same thing :) We will surely understand :)

    I plan in doing some side by side comparisons. I am going to cut the bottom out of my original pot, so both pots will be identical. The fiancee already thinks I'm nuts so there will be no need for explanation...

    I carry extra cash this time of year for CL finds! Once I get the charcoal basket done on my UDS its going on CL! For the size of smokes that I do It's really overkill. For me it's all about the build.
